Our mission, since 2012, is to support institutional investors and asset managers throughout the ongoing evolution of the industry. As a totally independent third party marketer, our goal is to become their hub to be connected to the state of the art in terms of services and strategies in the asset management world.
Our target is the community of institutional asset managers: they typically run short of time and resources to cope with the ever increasing size and fragmentation of their investment universe. They can thus leverage on our commitment to monitor the most value added services and the most talented fund managers
Our partners are service providers and niche asset managers who strongly believe that a committed local marketing partner can be crucial to build their brand in the institutional market. Though minimizing their resource requirements, we like to involve our partners in the definition and tracking of the marketing strategy.
