An investment manager with an excellent track record in the equities space took the view that they would reinvest some of their success into diversifying their platform away from the current business. Having worked with them for many years, they came to us with a mandate that required us to deliver a new business area that allowed them to leverage their current platform whilst, also not interfering with resources or execution.
Because of our intimate knowledge of the clients’ business and strategy we identified key skills, assets and products that with the simple addition of a technical fixed income specialist we were able to apply to a new product suite. This gave our client additional revenue streams and a hedge against any instability in their current market without a huge investment in a new platform. Because our research is updated on a daily basis, across strategies and business lines, we were quickly able to provide the client with a long and short list solution. A team of two was eventually hired and delivered p&l within six months.
From inception to execution we were able to deliver on our clients desire to diversify their platform to an entirely new asset class in just under four months.
