MARKET & PRODUCT 

DEVELOPMENT

Our track record

We have extensive experience of designing, launching, marketing and above all, managing investment and consulting products and services in asset management.

We created and oversaw the stock selection process for some of the U.K's largest Sustainable Funds, several of which have long periods of significant outperformance of their mainstream benchmarks.

We led a successful bid to provide responsible investment overlay services to an auto-enrolment pension scheme that is set to become Europe's largest.

Ways we are helping clients

  • Fund and product design: advisory services on creating ESG products that are commercially successful and credible

  • Training for asset managers: we work with a company that offers short courses for investment professionals on ESG, at all levels

  • Benchmarking: assessments of how a company compares to its competitive set on chosen sustainability issues; whether as a company, non-profit, or investor

  • Market analysis and business plans for asset managers, funds and service providers

  • Investor Relations:

    • confidential assessments of and enhancements to a company’s sustainability strategy, performance and communications

    • training and education for IR and c-suite on projecting strength on sustainability
