Market intelligence - What you need to know and why | Brochure


Intelligence is the life-blood of success.Market intelligence - What you need to know and why


There is no magic formula that determines why a fund – UCITS or other UCI – will meet with success when offered to investors. Many factors come into play. As in any endeavour, it is only by establishing what is known that one may begin to understand what remains to be learnt.

Key issues

The notion of ‘market Intelligence’ can encompass many different things. It can be as simple as the articulation of what is effectively a work instruction – "how do I register a fund in this jurisdiction?"

It can be a complex and often costly exercise in market research to determine what competitors are doing – "who is selling what to whom and at what price?"

It can be a formative element to long-term strategy, determining which platform to distribute in which region and to which client segment.

Main challenges

Understanding the implications of distribution, country by country:

  •  What documents are required, in which language, and with which frequency to permit a public offering
  •  What infrastructure, paying agent, reporting distributor, and other requirements are required in support of distribution activity
  •  Private placement regimes, their advantages and limitations
  •  What distribution channels are the preferred option in each jurisdiction and the implications for marketing

Looking beyond the beaten track:

  •  How best to extend existing offerings to new markets
  •  The level of penetration of foreign funds in developed and developing markets and the dynamics behind this
  •  Optimising the selection of domicile, legal structure and product in the interests of time to market and market penetration
  •  Ensuring compliance with changing market requirements at national and regional level
