Asset managers throughout Europe are increasing their communication with clients in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many are also providing more educational content for clients and prospects and increasing their use of technology across their sales and marketing functions.
Over half (52%) of the managers Cerulli surveyed for the report have substantially increased their communication with banks and wealth managers in response to COVID-19. In addition, 38% have increased their communication with pension schemes during the crisis—only 6% of respondents had previously contacted the latter group daily. Of the managers we surveyed, 44% have significantly increased the production of written content such as blogs and 40% have substantially increased the number of video conferences they conduct for clients.
