Product Strategy

Deliver products that meet institutional market needs

Your team manages the product mix your firm offers to institutional investors. You have to work with your sales, marketing, and RFP teams to ensure products are competitively positioned. You need to know what strategies will be in demand with institutional investors in the future, and know what strategies your competitors are launching. eVestment can help you pinpoint areas for improvement and best position products for future growth, resulting in a clear picture of how to align your resources and capitalize on opportunities.
Product Strategy

“We like to keep our finger on the pulse of the market. So if we know when a specific asset class has experienced net inflows or outflows, that is important data for us to be aware of as we look to manage our products and develop new products.”

– Director of Product Management and Analysis, RBC Global Asset Management
