Fund Investor Tracker explained
We track 31 of the leading fund management brands, building a comprehensive overview of retail investor sentiment towards your brand, whilst supporting benchmarking against peers
Our quarterly survey uses a sample of 1,500+ fund investors (advised and non-advised), giving you focused insights from the UK retail fund holder population
The depth of the sample size allows us to segment by customers of each asset manager, as well as the views of different demographic groups
Combining data from multiple quarters enables us to dive deeper into the demographics, behaviours and attitudes for holders of individual brands
We produce and share a quarterly deck and also support and take ad hoc questions relating to brand, sentiment, value and Consumer Duty
We can also supplement from our panel of consumers and add some deep-dive interviews for asset managers who want more detailed, qualitative insights
Our quarterly report on investors provides detailed insights on the ownership, views and intentions of fund investors. Based on a survey of end investors, it also provides teams and Boards with clear insights about what investors think, to support marketing, product, Assessment of Value and Consumer Duty project work.
*NEW-2022 upgrade – adding in Consumer Duty support
The Consumer Duty final guidance came out on the 27 July 2022. This new regulation comes of top of the existing requirements of the Assessment of Value process.
Asset Managers sales to end investors are typically intermediated though platforms and advisors. As a result, firms are cut off from knowing their customers. They don’t know who they are, what they think about their investments or what they need from investing.
Our audience insights will support Outcome 1 – understand your target market
Our Value insights will support Outcome 2 –understand what your customers think about value
We can also provide qualitative support for Outcomes 3 and 4.
