Study finds European boutiques outperform their larger peers

Making a splash

Fresh academic research from Professor Andrew Clare, Chair in Asset Management at Cass Business School, reveals that specialist, boutique asset managers in Europe outperform their larger counterparts – significantly so in the case of European Mid/Small Cap and Global Emerging Market funds. 

Clare, having conducted what is believed to be the first academic analysis of the performance of European boutique asset managers versus their larger counterparts, says that the ‘boutique premium’ demonstrated by AMG Group in 2015 for US equities, also appears to be evident in the European Fund Management industry.
