For over 30 years GAM has been providing active investment solutions across asset classes – we understand the needs of you as an asset manager
We have vast experience in registering and distributing funds in Europe. We offer a unique client coverage approach where a single liaison officer remains the first point of contact through the acquisition, fund launch project and relationship management stage
GAM develops bespoke investment funds (i.e. “private label funds”) for banks, insurance companies, independent asset managers and qualified investors. Clients outsource parts or all of the development of investment funds, while continuing to focus on core functions such as asset management and distribution.
Our private label clients benefit from the comprehensive expertise of our specialists, long-standing experience as an outsourcing partner as well as the good relationships GAM has with regulators.
As a provider of private labelling solutions, GAM has played a significant role in shaping the market for private label fund solutions in the last 20 years. We successfully launched our first fund as early as 1992. Since then, we have designed and set up over 200 private label funds domiciled in Luxembourg and Switzerland.
Outsourcing in the investment fund environment provides scope for diversified and flexible solutions. GAM has a very broad knowledge and many years of experience as a partner in outsourcing, offering outstanding management company services. As our client, you benefit directly from our comprehensive expertise and wealth of experience.
We are fully UCITS IV compliant and provide substance, infrastructure and services to many Luxembourg-domiciled investment fund structures.
