IPE – Manager Selection: A new guide to the future

Wealth Managers

Our unique manager assessment approach helps wealth managers create successful and highly differentiated own-brand (white-labelled) investment funds. We can offer exclusivity within specific marketing territories, and access to a universe of investment managers typically unavailable to retail investors.

Manager-specific risk can be limited and overall fund capacity maintained through a multi-manager framework, providing clients a genuinely compelling and active investment offering that is evergreen, independent and value for money.
