Managed Performance Services

Outsource your complex performance measurement and reporting functions to balance your reporting commitments with monetary and time budgets

In today’s investment landscape, performance measurement and reporting are critical components of a successful investment program. Performance marketing, globally, continues to evolve and is undergoing a renewed sense of scrutiny from regulators and investors alike.

The complexity of the investment process, and large-scale turnover within the performance industry can make it challenging for investment firms to manage their performance programs in-house. With the recent inflation pressures and volatile markets, many firms are finding themselves in a position where it is difficult to bring on new hires, with performance professionals becoming increasingly difficult and expensive to recruit and retain.

Driven by these macroeconomic drivers, many firms are seeking to leverage additional resources to support their performance measurement and reporting capabilities. Outside of additional or new technology, the next obvious solution is outsourced performance services, which provides an ideal solution to cost efficiency without sacrificing expertise.
