As a decreasing management fee environment compels emerging managers to optimize their operating costs, the average break-even point amongst emerging managers (AUM < $500m) stands at about $86m1. 55% of managers surveyed believe this number will increase, while 40% feel it will stay the same2.
Meanwhile, emerging managers < $50million in assets face the challenge of finding service providers to meet their unique set of needs.
Aquamarine Value understands how difficult it can be for small emerging managers to get access to the service providers they need to grow their fund.
Through building a collaborative relationship with firms and having access to your clients, Aquamarine Value can help guide emerging managers with valuable timesaving outsourced solutions such as:
Producing Market Commentary for Funds.
Acting as an Investment Product Specialist to ensure Transparency of Investment Process and Risk Exposure for the Firm’s Clients.
Expanding reach through Marketing and Capital Introductions.
Emerging managers can also appreciate that Aquamarine Value will walk them through the entire process whilst paying close attention to their individual and unique needs, instead of being sidelined as a small client.
Take advantage of direct US and Asian experience in investments within asset managers and asset owners from a combined front office perspective, accentuated with marketing and product specialist skills, hands-on business development experiences and a global client reach that will contribute towards reduction of the firm’s overhead and costs.
Outsourcing is expected, Aquamarine Value is the new, unexpected outsourcing destination.
