SRPMagazine - Issue 39 June 2011
25 Jun 2011
Catching up and moving onThis month Arete founder Dr Robert Benson writes his final editorial as MD, looking back over the last 20 years, watching structured investments grow from a ‘Wild West’ niche to a serious global investment alternative. Optimistic for the future, he also presents his replacement, Jan Scibor-Kaminski. Appropriately, this issue catches up with some of the industry’s maturing incumbents and finds out how the future is looking for them. Both broker-dealer Incapital (p. 22), which has grown a successful transatlantic distribution business by emphasising education, and Nomura’s fund-wrapped European growth strategy (p. 18) are good exponents of the sophisticated and investor-focused industry Dr Benson portrays in his parting snapshot. The cover story (p. 26) this month looks at Latin America and how different providers are looking to gain a foothold in this rapidly growing region.
