What is it?

  • Ten new DGFs have been launched in the last two years. Competition is intensifying as asset managers are developing new DGF strategies to gain from the surge in assets under management in these strategies.
  • Our 2014 MI Service predicted that in the future, capacity constraints and the emergence of new entrants will drive a more even dispersion of assets within this market. In fact we estimated that the market share of the top five asset managers will fall from 84% of assets to just 57%.
