Since entering the market in 2013, AssetMetrix has established itself as a provider of high-end analytics and tailored asset servicing for private capital investors. AssetMetrix currently looks after portfolios with a total investment volume in excess of € 2.1 billion and more than 300 individual fund investments.
By taking over outsourced administrative and analytical activities, AssetMetrix reduces the burden on private capital investors and helps increase transparency. As a result, private capital investors can reallocate in-house resources and focus on their investment activities. Via state-of-the-art online portals, clients have 24/7 access to data and analyses drawn up on proprietary analytical modules that are made available by AssetMetrix.
Positive feedback from clients and the increasing trend towards greater professionalism in back and middle office functions are both important factors that are helping AssetMetrix to grow. Limited Partners and General Partners alike are coming to see the benefits of the selective outsourcing of analytics and administrative tasks. The escalation in regulatory requirements is also an increasing source of pressure for private capital investors and is contributing to rising demand for tailored products.
The “Preqin Special Report” published in July 2016 not only underlines the trend towards outsourcing, it also identifies a willingness in the market to change to the right service provider for private-capital-related activities. During the period from July 2015 to June 2016, for instance, 36% of fund managers in Europe changed at least one of their service providers. The main reasons cited for changing were cost inefficiencies and dissatisfaction with the quality of service previously received.
