Evolving with a changing asset management industry

The research also discusses the current state and how full-service providers are launching online platforms

Cerulli cautions that product providers must understand the dynamics affecting each possible distribution outlet to protect and grow their marketshare.

Spurred by readers and Cerulli's research engine, the Edge that almost wasn't celebrates its 200th issue. Cerulli Associates has launched the 200th issue of its flagship periodical, now known as The Cerulli Edge - U.S. Asset Management Edition. In this special issue, Kurt Cerulli, founder and principal of Cerulli Associates reflects on the state of the industry via a 'look back' to the inaugural issue published 17 years ago.

"There was almost no Cerulli Edge, because my first reaction to the suggestion back in 1997 that we add a monthly publication was quite negative," states Kurt Cerulli. "Since then, we have witnessed amazing things."

The April 2014 issue, appropriately titled the 'Now and Then' issue, examines the evolution of managed accounts, direct platforms, hedge funds, and offshore fund distribution.

"To celebrate this milestone, we are taking a look back," explains Kurt Cerulli. "Technology bubbles have emerged and burst. Cell phones have moved from a novelty to being so embedded in our daily interactions that they may well threaten the intellectual and social development of the next generation. Securitization of poor investments and unconscionable sloppiness by trusted ratings agencies created a global financial crisis that threatened the most basic functions of our capital markets."

The research also discusses the current state and how full-service providers are launching online platforms and discount providers are continuing to add advice services, which is resulting in a convergence of the service models that will make each become virtually indistinguishable.

Cerulli cautions that product providers must understand the dynamics affecting each possible distribution outlet to protect and grow their marketshare.
