LONDON, March 19, 2019 – Fund Brand 50 (FB50), a research study by Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. (NYSE:BR), a global Fintech leader, reveals the best brands in European third-party asset management and names the latest movers and shakers. The independent study, now in its eighth year, measures asset managers’ relative brand attractiveness based on fund selector perceptions across ten brand drivers. The research also examines the best third-party brands in each of Europe’s ten largest retail markets.
The latest annual brand study reveals that size does not matter when it comes to building brand credibility. Those brands that made the biggest gains had varied backgrounds, product scale and investment expertise, and all demonstrated high conviction stories to engage the industry’s most influential fund buyers. Asset management giants BlackRock, JP Morgan and Fidelity held on to their leadership positions, while the French multi-affiliate group, Natixis, jumped 11 places, closing in on a position in the ranks of the elite top-ten. Joining Natixis as groups with the biggest brand momentum were Pictet and Robeco – all three enjoying significant improvements to the Total Brand Scores on which the FB50 rankings are based.
