Asset Manager Survey 2021: What are the biggest hurdles for foreign asset managers coming to the German market?

What are the biggest hurdles for foreign investment companies in the German market? Is it specific requirements of institutional clients or complex German regulations? Switch to Work from Home or cautiously returning to the office? Or is it finding the right sales contacts or pushing ahead with digitisation? The following online survey – the second after 2020 – seeks answers to such central questions. It is aimed at foreign asset managers in Germany who have only been represented here for a few years or are still planning to enter the German speaking market.

The questionnaire consists of 12 questions, so answering shouldn’t take longer than 10 to 15 minutes. The (anonymous) results of the survey can be requested by all participants at the end of the survey with no further strings attached. The survey is open until mid of March 2021.
