Fund managers are evolving their strategies to defend market share in Australia’s hyper competitive asset management market, and to seize growth opportunities in COVID-normal.
Disrupted sales teams can no longer rely on face to face meetings or conference coffee breaks. CEOs and country heads can’t rely on the annual conference calendar for market intelligence and client connection. And most clients have Zoom fatigue.
All this is against a backdrop of external factors such as a global recession, increasing investor expectations, and more digitally-driven client and counter party behaviours. With more pressure on people, compliance and budgets, fund managers still have to address the perennial challenge of standing out from the crowd – in a shrinking media landscape - and reaching fragmented retail direct, advised, family office and institutional investor audiences.
BlueChip is pleased to invite you to watch our on-demand webinar “CEO briefing on how to grow FUM in a COVID-19 disrupted Australia” for fund managers.
Our panellists explored how they have grown funds under management from direct, intermediated and institutional investors.
Register here to watch on-demand and gain a better position in the post-COVID market.
