19 Sep 2016 Gatekeepers — it’s been a year!
Gatekeepers. That word strikes fear into many fund managers' hearts and rightly so. These are the people who increasingly influence and direct the volume of sales in the UK, and if a fund group isn't on their radar it's potentially missng out on some sizeable assets. The problem becomes even more acute when the investment outlook is stormy and investors are taking shelter.
The Gatekeepers analysis by Fundscape and GBi2 was designed to shed light on this murky world and help fund groups understand and pinpoint available opportunities. But it was also designed to help advisers and investors make sure they work with gatekeepers who are actually making a demonstrable difference to investor outcomes.
