The Growth of Investment Boutiques

Posted · Add Comment

A recent report from Sungard looks at factors driving the growth of the boutique fund business.  Please download a copy of the report here: The SunGard Asset Arena 360 Boutique Asset Manager report

Here are a few of the key findings of the report:

  • Being owner-operated ranks among the top drivers of success within the boutique fund industry
  • Nearly half of respondents (49%) attribute the success of boutiques in part to a backlash against the fund arm of banks
  • Some 70% of respondents believe in the ‘Big Squeeze’ phenomenon – middle-tier players losing ground while big funds get bigger and smaller players expand in their niche territory
