PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
 

Build and manage investments.

How your business will continue to compete is one of the most critical questions facing firms. With new regulations and shifts in investor preferences, it’s important that your solutions are as relevant as they are financially sound.

 
 

Stand out from competitors.
Position your products to succeed by better understanding the investment landscape and responding to demand. You can dig deep into the data and research to surface what best sets you apart from other asset managers and appeals to investors around the world.

 
 
PORTFOLIO CONSTRUCTION
 

Create client portfolios.

Your top priority is helping clients meet their objectives. Arm yourself with the market data and analytical tools you need to assist them in making their goals a reality.

 
 

Construct models and assemble portfolios.
Build models and portfolios that reflect how your asset allocation strategies can help meet client goals. And you can support your recommendations with research from our independent team of analysts.

 
 
MARKETING AND SALES
 

Connect with investors.

Equip your sales team and advisors with relevant information, so you always know investors are getting the right message about their investments.

 
 

Design and distribute reports and presentations.

Build elegant plan review books and compliant fact sheets using designed templates and a flexible system. Because you need the appropriate materials to make a strong case for your investments and explain how they fit in to a portfolio—ready when you are.

 
 

The approach Morningstar’s taking with Sustainalytics has really brought clarity in terms of defining this marketplace and how it should be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, one ETF versus another.
