French asset management boutiques

Ready for export

Since 2008, the French asset management industry has undergone significant structural development. What observers had considered to be a cyclical shock was actually a profound transformation of the business.

Executive summary

  • Faced with sluggish French sales over the long term, French boutiques have started to deploy their expertise internationally 
  • While their initial successes were achieved from given opportunities, they now build strategies based on the identification of products sold and the sales organisation
  • Nevertheless, considerable progress is still needed in brand development, operational marketing and even client service
  • The international expansion of French boutiques should enable investors to enrich their range of management strategies by relying on innovative management processes or original spheres of activity, as well as more orthodox management techniques tailored to current expectations
