Your blueprint to accessing cross-border assets

Distribution 360 (D360) is a toolkit designed to facilitate and support business planning with robust data and analysis, combined with independent thinking. Whether you are looking at market entry options or growing your business in Europe or Asia-Pacific, our D360 guides will help you pilot your business through the complex maze of unique markets, enabling you to identify the most accessible and potentially profitable opportunities.

Available as downloadable regional reports with accompanying data packs, the D360 toolkits will help you:

  • Identify accessible distribution opportunities in local markets.
  • Build business plans with reliable market data and sizing.
  • Understand local investor behaviour and product preferences to shape product strategy.
  • Stay on top of regulatory changes and their impact on distribution.
  • Build knowledge of distribution channels and new emerging opportunities, including sub-advisory.

Why D360?

    ‘The challenge for fund groups building cross-border assets is in setting realistic expectations for board level buy-in and budget support. The visible public data looks good but is highly misleading for this purpose. Our aim, in publishing this report, is to give business strategists a single definitive source of knowledge and data on which to justify budget resource.’ Diana Mackay, Managing Director, Global Distribution Solutions at Broadridge
