Have you ever wondered how your firm stacks up in terms of fund fact sheet release dates and overall production efficiency?
We are in the business of automating fund marketing documents so, naturally, we were curious to learn how the industry performs at large. We already had a pretty good idea, based on our close relationships with fund marketers at a variety of investment management firms. However, we thought it would be interesting to gather some empirical data and publish it for our readers.
Our Product Manager, Noel Rodolfo, conducted a study based on a random sample of 35 fund companies and 175 fact sheets.
His goal was to find out:
In 2018, we conducted a Mutual Fund Fact Sheet Production Study, where we analyzed 235 factsheets from 47 asset management firms of all shapes and sizes. A few factors observed included publish date, modification date and how the file was produced. The two most observed methods were using automation and producing factsheets manually. To find the firm’s production method, we turned to the metadata to show us what applications, software, or tools they were using to create the PDFs. After digging deeper into the metadata, we identified some key reasons why firms have longer production durations or later release dates. We were also able to make some observations about what drives efficiency, and the findings were pretty shocking. Read on to get the scoop!
