Highlights: Importance to Financial Firms, Investors and Consultants
The investment world is becoming increasingly intertwined, so avoiding the international marketplace is no longer a viable option for any portfolio manager serious about building an investment business of significant size and scale. However, many managers cannot afford the time or investment necessary to establish the required in-country presence needed in various international markets. Many simply do not have the cultural or experiential skill sets available internally, the firm orientation, or the international relationships they need to be successful. It is also a daunting commitment of resources to acquire what is needed. For many, the distraction of such an effort as well as the financial burden, operational requirements and business risks are simply too great to go it alone. The result is that many of the highest performing managers willingly, or unwittingly, severely limit their firm's potential by shutting themselves out of lucrative international markets. The Aliier Passport platform is providing managers an alternative.
