what we do

Everything we do is centred around European fund distribution - across all European jurisdictions and distribution channels. From institutional to wholesale and retail.

We put practice-relevance above all else. We blend our wealth of experience, insights and networks

with our truly forward thinking approach, which has made us well known in the industry for identifying major distribution opportunities and challenges at early stages. We are fully dedicated to providing

our clients the utmost clarity and conviction necessary to make strategic decisions. 

bespoke strategic advice

Bespoke assessments and strategic advice are the core focus of accelerando. Guiding our clients through the ever-increasing complexity of European fund distribution, in a real bespoke manner, is what we truly love to do and where we feel accelerando is at its best.

 

90% of our revenue comes from strategic advice and more than 75% of our bespoke work 

reaches board level. Most of our assignments, which are 100% NDA-based, are focused on optimising and prioritising our client's distribution models with a hands-on analysis into every little detail which impacts success. We assess the client’s product proposition (funds, share classes, fees etc.), sales set-up and footprint, client-service capabilities, communication, past successes / failures all the way down to the client's ambitions. We present crystal clear assessments with truly actionable recommendations, leveraging our proprietary research, vast network and 100% asset management background. 

 

Our set-up, approach and commitment clearly differentiate us from our peers, whose firm sizes often prevent them from establishing the level of personal and trusted relationships we have earned from our clients. Also, our boutique structure enables us to truly tailor our advice upon client requirements.

research & reports

We take pride in our fund distribution country reports, which have quickly established themselves as the most holistic market intelligence reports used for fund distribution leaders and market

intelligence units internationally.

Our reports dive deep into the respective fund landscapes, the drivers behind fund flows and provide insights on each fund buyer segment. We focus on practice relevance. We address what it takes in reality to build a successful business in terms of sales and client services models. We source key insights from tier one buy-side, but also sell-side interviews and we formulate clear

opinions and forward thinking recommendations.

Also, our thematic research reports, covering a wide range of asset management and distribution related themes, have proven to provide excellent client feedback, based on our pragmatic approach to complexity, combined with clear and actionable conclusions.
