Testing the quality of fund concepts as early as the launch process or using standardised analysis and fund ratings to improve understanding of the product - this strengthens investor confidence and supports successful marketing of the funds. Through the exclusive cooperation between Universal-Investment and Scope Analysis, the leading European company for fund analysis and asset-manager evaluation, fund originators have direct and inexpensive access to the services on request. They provide an extra sales and marketing boost for new and established fund concepts.
A “perfect match” after an extensive search: in summer 2020, Universal-Investment acquired the online platform CAPinside. Universal-Investment will thus create wide-ranging distribution opportunities for fund initiators. Universal-Investment also plans to develop relevant service offerings for institutional investors. CAPinside clients will themselves have direct accessto a broad range of services at Universal-Investment. The following article explains why the two companies complement each other and what goals they have set themselves.
