This report provides a broad-based overview of the trends and challenges impacting institutional distribution teams. Trends in asset allocation, request for proposal (RFP) volumes, the use of consultants, sales cycles, and marketing strategies are all covered in this report. Trends and challenges are looked at primarily from three different perspectives: those of sales and marketing, consultant relations, and RFP teams. This report uncovers how these teams remain successful in a challenging market environment, the ways in which they organize and target clients, and the skills and expertise they want to recruit and retain. It touches on the impact of COVID-19 on the sales process, increased diversity and inclusion (D&I) interest from asset owners, and other emerging trends. The report also looks at staffing trends from many different common roles found on sales and marketing teams.
