Selection process

We support our clients in the selection of managers and products (UCITS and AIF) and management mandates. Since 2001, have been relying on a proprietary database for this activity. More than 400 registered listed fund management companies contribute free of charge to the database with info about offers and companies.


Proprietary database

Each asset management company must provide and update information about the following variables

  • offer 
  • company
  • assets under management
  • clients
  • SRI

In order to constantly monitor the updates proposed by the industry, the database is also continuously updated through periodic meetings organised with the management companies. On average, about one hundred per year.


Selection process

The selection process is divided into two phases. The quantitative analysis consists in applying a proprietary algorithm, developed and verified continuously, composed of various 20 measures divided into 6 families. The quantitative analysis is preparatory to the qualitative one to which each product is subject during the selection phase and which involves direct contact with management companies.


Transition management

In order to implement the decisions taken in the selection of mandates, we provide support for the portfolio transition (Transition Management), which is structured as follows:

  • Project Management: we plan and oversee all the project phases and manage the relationship with all those counterparties involved (e.g. managers, custodian bank).
  • Pre-trade analysis and estimation of transaction volumes: we propose the  analyse of the current and "target" portfolio with respect to the current one and the analysis of the in order to find the best "matching" of for financial instruments.


We supported our clients in 250 selection processes on average each years, in the last 5 years. +4 billion euros the amount invested on average each year.
