Advice on Market Opportunities
Kirstein helps asset managers understand investment markets and explore their potential.
Should you want to enter a new market, we can help you with all the essential insights. On the other hand, we can also help you broaden your client base and reach its potential if you already have clients in a given market.
Our advice is customised to each of our clients and can for instance give you input on your sales strategy, marketing plan and business development. Our consultancy service is ongoing and takes place both on a strategic and operational level.
We can provide you with essential insights such as:
Which investors exist in a market?
Which regulations are present in a market?
Which asset managers dominate a market?
Which opportunities do you have as an asset manager in a given market?
We have had many insightful interactions with Kirstein A/S over the years. When we recently made a commitment to expand our institutional business and focus on the Nordic and Benelux region, we also knew we would benefit from partnering with the team at Kirstein to support our efforts. We appreciate that it is a sophisticated and complex market where we needed to take a thoughtful and patient approach given our long-term commitment to working with Nordic and Benelux investors and also in identifying those investors that align most with our capabilities. Kirstein has been instrumental in this process, and their qualitative knowledge and consultative approach is invaluable to us.
