How asset managers segment

In Q3 2020, we researched how asset managers segment their institutional clients and the benefits it brings them.

We initiated the project after a discussion at a CX Forum meeting about how firms manage the different needs of different clients.

18 recognisable asset management brands participated.

On the project, we used the CX Forum’s ‘fireside chat’ process with third-party facilitation and record-keeping to ensure no doubt could arise that anything other than clients’ general interests was discussed.

This format enabled us to gather statistically-valid data and perspectives from heads of marketing, product, CX, digital design, relationship management, client service, client satisfaction, and COOs.

The result was a clear picture of how asset managers segment their clients.

Check out the findings  if you’re interested in learning things like the proportion of firms that tier and / or segment their institutional clients, how many gain strategic value from their efforts, and how.
