“The RFP world has changed dramatically for the institutional investment community in the last decade,” according to Ariana Amplo, CEO of InHub. “Originally it was reserved only for Public Pension Plans and Billion Dollar Mandates, and mostly handled through snail mail. Then there was a period when everyone thought databases might replace the process all together. Now, formal RFPs, RFIs and DDQs are taking place more than ever before and we are so thrilled to introduce this Survey and share the newest trends back to the industry.”
InHub offers institutional investors and consultants an online solution to issue RFPs and just completed their first full year out of beta. Over $47 billion in institutional RFP mandates have been published through the web-based tool.
Answers to the survey remain confidential and are used for trend purposes only. There will be no firm attribution.
