Capital Raising via Distribution
The Global Distribution Network (GDN) brings together fund managers and investors.
A New Approach for Distribution
The asset management industry is transforming rapidly. Cross-border selling has become easier over the past years with UCITS and the AIFMD offering a “Marketing Passport” for investment vehicles. As fund providers are becoming increasingly numerous, “know your clients” has never been as important as in today’s overly competitive markets. This makes it essential to gain entry into new markets and utilise the latest digital technology to ensure effective information flow and communication between service providers and clients.
The Global Distribution Network
Most Management Companies (ManCo) understand cross-border distribution as the drafting and filing of passport notifications with the local regulator as well as the ongoing maintenance of country-specific legal requirements.
Acting as your UCITS-ManCo or Alternative Investment Fund Manager (AIFM) we think it needs more to raise money for your funds. That’s why we have established our own Global Distribution Network (GDN) covering all key distribution markets in Asia, Australia, Europe, Latin America and the U.S. This growing network consists of carefully selected placement agents and third party marketers located all over the world offering distribution opportunities for you as fund manager and your investment strategy. In practice, this means that we provide you as fund initiators with a pre-selection of suitable partners and help you develop and tailor your fund distribution approach in a smart and cost-efficient manner according to your needs. We provide you with guidance and see ourselves as multipliers and introducers meaning we open the door for you to access new markets, constantly monitoring our distribution partners.
All of our partners have strong expertise in their respective asset classes and markets. They deliver a wealth of information such as “investor appetite” for various investment strategies in respective regions. Together we help identify the regions where your investment strategies can be distributed for maximum success. In return, the GDN gives placement agents exclusive access to you as fund initiators and your investment strategies.
