Are we seeing green shoots in asset raising for funds?
21st June 2023
After a lengthy period of macro-economic uncertainty, geopolitical stresses and political upheaval all around the world, we are seeing the first signs of improving investor interest
Despite all the background noise on cost of living and interest rates, the S&P 500 is up almost 15% year to date but is this maybe just a temporary boost? Potentially, but the fact is, there is positive private client sentiment.
We are also seeing increased activity in the market amongst institutional investors looking to re-allocate out of cash and talking to asset managers about the future positioning of their portfolios.
The market seems more energized and distribution is again front and centre of the debate as asset managers move from cost cutting to investing in future asset gathering activities. In our experience of working with hundreds of asset managers raising capital across Europe, the winning fund distribution approach looks at:
- Targeting discreet geographical markets and investor types
- Understanding specific local regulatory, data and tax requirements
- Identifying the right distribution partners
- Setting up your operations to help manage distributor relationships
- Implementation of robust oversight processes for on-going monitoring
At Acolin, we support our clients by injecting much-needed agility into their distribution operations. It is precisely for moments like this, that we work to help clients seize new opportunities in the market quickly and most importantly in an efficient and compliant manner.
