"Assets under management are growing at a double-digit rate," according to the results of the most recent benchmarking study conducted by McKinsey & Company and Institutional Investor's U.S. Institute. This research also shows that "41 percentage points of operating margin separated the top- and bottom-third players, a disparity that has widened significantly over the past 3 years."

The briefing will enable boutique asset managers to network with and learn from their peers in tackling the obstacles they face in growing their businesses.
