some testimonials

"Working with accelerando has been a terrific experience. Philip and his team offer world class expertise and an impressive level of depth. They provided us with very thought- and helpful recommendations and guidance." 

Chief Operating Officer

U.S. Asset Manager

August 2019

"accelerando offers you a 360° degree in depth view of the European market, highlighting main strategic topics, future trends and potential pitfalls. What impressed me is that the team is not afraid to pinpoint improvements for your own organisation. The exchanges with the team were insightful, the work is of very high quality and the team  gave us many ideas to think about and to put them in potential action plans."

Global Head of Business Development

European Asset Manager

May 2018

“accelerando provides clear and thoughtful insights of our industry. Unlike many consultants accelerando follows up with very relevant and practical recommendations. I can highly recommend accelerando for any distribution team that wants to give itself a health check."

CEO Nordic Fund Manager

September 2017

" accelerando offers a level of flexibility, customisation and insight unseen in the herd of plain vanilla providers. A true best in class intelligence provider."

Head of Market Intelligence

French Asset Manager

February 2017

" The strategic and tactical knowledge that the team displayed at accelerando shone through like a beacon of light. They immediately understood our business constraints. However, it was their recommendations once they 'got into the weeds' that really impressed me. Philip and the team probably know they are 'best in class' but their manner and approach got a huge amount more from our team which led to a suitably in depth report. It is more than likely that most of their recommendations will be put in place." 

Head of International Sales

UK Asset Manager

June 2017

" accelerando clearly have real in-depth knowledge and understanding of the European funds market. What really impresses however is their ability to articulate this understanding whilst taking into account the constraints of my organization and develop customized and actionable recommendations."
