Asset managers. Game on! 16 November 2018
Our latest Living Ratings report on the world's leading asset managers shows that competition within the digital arena is on fire in 2018, with the vast majority of firms making significant changes to their dotcom and social media investments. This year’s report highlights major moves from amongst players of all sizes. And even companies who have increased their individual scores have slipped in the rankings, as the competition has heated up. Fiercely.
Brains, brawn and branding
Bulge bracket firms J.P. Morgan and Deutsche Bank (37th and 78th in 2017, respectively) saw their asset management businesses skyrocket into the Top 10 this year. And proving once again that you don’t need AUM muscle to be a smart marketer, smaller asset managers like Russell Investments, GAM, Ballie Gifford, Putnam and Macquarie – none of whom make the cut for the IPE Top 50 – all scored in our Ratings’ Top 20.
