Fund Distribution

How does SGSS support asset managers' fund distribution strategies?


For an asset manager, reaching new investors on a global scale, facilitating distribution in its own country, or distributing its funds more efficiently are essential concerns that often call for specific distribution support.

SGSS offers a comprehensive range of distribution support services, each designed to sustain business growth and enhance asset managers’ distribution strategies.
