Window to the world's best asset managers

Selection offers institutional investors access to the world's best asset managers. Our search for the best asset managers builds upon our structured and documented process, and we can document that we add value to our clients via our asset manager selection. In addition to the team in Copenhagen, we take advantage of the expertise of our subsidiary in Boston, which is an integral part of the ongoing analysis and selection of asset managers.

We do not only believe that there exist good asset managers, who can deliver consistent outperformance; we can actually prove that we are able to identify them.

We have a clear-cut opinion of what we look for in an asset manager, and through quantitative and qualitative analyses of the 5 Ps, we use our unique knowledge and experience in the best interest of our clients.
