Sub-Advisory Databooks
A must-have for your business planning and prospecting, FRC's Sub-Advisory Databooks will give you the entire mutual fund and VA sub-advised landscape at your fingertips. Data is showcased from the industry viewpoint down to the fund level, and showcased from both the advisor/sponsor and sub-advisor perspectives. Using FRC's proprietary methodology for mandate change gathering and data analysis, the Databooks show all of the sub-advisors on each fund, fees and breakpoints, active vs. passive data, multi-manager information, firm rankings for mutual fund and VA products, and the actual amount of assets managed by each sub-advisor where available. The Sub-Advisory Databooks are ideal for internal analysis, preparing for board presentations, and easy to carry on the road for sales initiatives.
