Manager Research & Selection

bfinance incorporates our specific requirements into the process, where other consultants say ‘this is what you get'.

Corporate pension fund, UK

The bfinance model inverts the traditional power structure of consultant-assisted manager selection. This provides full coverage of the provider universe – including small or up-and-coming firms that others don’t reach – together with a high degree of customisation and deep specialist expertise. No buy lists; a level playing field for asset managers; a stronger hand for investors.




The beginning: customisation. Establish unique priorities, ensure the widest possible choice for your needs.

The end: governance. Full transparency on method and analysis so that decisions can be justified with a robust audit trail.

In between: control. Stay in the driving seat with continuing flexibility and additional resources – heavy lifting or specialist expertise – when you need them.
