Investit Wins Global Investor/ISF Consultancy of the Year 2012

We are proud to announce that Investit has been named ‘Consultancy of the Year 2012’ by Global Investor & ISF – the second time we have won this prestigious award. According to the joint press release issued by Global Investor & ISF, “The awards recognise the best contributions to asset management over the past 12 months.”

Over the last year, we have developed our range of core offerings to enable clients to be at the forefront of business best practice:

Consultancy – we continued to bring our expertise to client assignments this year from providing trusted advice to managing major change programmes. Investit’s newest offering is a “regulatory heatmap” which gives each client a prioritised, organised approach to ensure their firm will comply within the timescale for 18 different regulations. It is quick to use and easy to comprehend for communication across the business.

Research – we develop best practice reports and toolkits containing practical advice and analysis. Our latest reports give guidance for: creating successful business and processing models to enable firms to grow profitably; using new technologies, such as mobile technology and social media, to engage clients and enhance the client experience; and developing a strong data management program to facilitate business objectives.

Benchmarking – with a database of industry statistics on operations and IT built over ten years, we go beyond benchmarking to show firms, not only where they stand against best practice and their peers, but the roadmap to get them to the top of their game. This year we developed a detailed corporate complexity model to benchmark firms against the best practice definitions which are right for them – whatever their mix of products and markets.

Investit works with clients to improve their margins from as low as 10% to as high as 60%, and the firm has a long track-record of delivering value on over 1,400 projects across the globe.

Catherine Doherty, Global CEO of Investit said:

“Winning this award for the second time is a great achievement. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that has worked for us over the past fourteen years to build Investit and its reputation. We are very proud to be able to say that 97% of our business is repeat business, which demonstrates the incredible support we get from our clients.”
