UK Institutional Market Study – UKIMS: The Report

The UK Institutional Market Study (UKIMS) was launched in 2015 and designed to give a deeper understanding of the UK Institutional market and how asset managers can effectively communicate, influence and engage with this audience.

UKIMS focuses on the views and behaviours of pension investment decision makers and influencers: investment consultants, scheme managers and CIOs, trustees and professional trustees.

UKIMS captures a snapshot of industry views from consultants, scheme managers and trustees on current trends in the UK investment management industry. To qualify as a participant, those surveyed or spoken with must be able to detail their involvement in the investment decision making process for either a defined benefit or defined contribution pension scheme.

UKIMS: The Report takes the findings from the third wave of the research and expands on these, supplementing with additional analysis and commentary from industry figures.

Key Objectives

The UKIMS Report has the following primary research objectives:

  • Give an overview of current investment appetite and asset allocation views.
  • Provide a deeper understanding of the market’s media consumption split by platform (print, mobile, web etc.).
  • Gain an understanding of how databases and other information sources are used as part of the decision-making process.
  • Gather the market’s perception of syndicate members, key competitors and leaders in each sector.
  • Give insight into the most effective communication strategies with examples of excellence, including social media and use of “communities”.
  • Insight into the profile of the key decision makers/influencers within the various segments that make up the institutional market.

Clients may order copies of this report both as a hard cover 88 page report and as a PDF for further internal distribution.
