2022 marked a new era for UniCredit with the launch of our onemarkets Fund, a newly established funds family which extended our range of investment solutions offered to network clients across the Group.
The platform represented a new approach to asset management business, built with a distributor’s attitude that puts the needs of our clients at the very centre. At the same time, it remains fully in line with our financial ambitions to build sustainable revenue growth with recurrent fees, whilst being capital-light.
A virtual event provided the perfect occasion for retail, private banking, wealth management and corporate network colleagues from Italy, Germany and Austria to hear directly from the internal and external stakeholders involved in the design and implementation of this new fund platform, with Q&A and local commercial sessions providing a comprehensive overview of the product, its unique selling points and the key benefits for clients.
Through onemarkets Fund, we offer an exclusive selection of bespoke investment opportunities managed by a team of internal and external experts under a framework designed to ensure quality as well as risk-return profile. The selection and design of the funds was based on UniCredit’s deep knowledge of its clients – with products developed in-house and via strategic partnerships with leading asset managers.
The first wave of funds was made up of three multi-asset and four equity (global and thematic) bespoke funds, structured with the involvement of Amundi, Blackrock, Fidelity, J.P. Morgan and PIMCO, with sales taking place across Italy, Germany and Austria.
Across all areas of the business, we put the needs of our clients firmly at the centre of everything we do. The launch of our onemarkets Fund represented the latest step in this direction as our bank broadened its range of investment solutions. The product offering will continue to be gradually enlarged, leveraging on UniCredit’s ‘open architecture’ approach. At the same time, the initiative is a concrete result of the bank’s UniCredit Unlocked strategy and stated ambition to drive sustainable, capital-light revenues with a client-centric approach.
Across all areas of the business, we are putting the needs of our clients firmly at the centre of everything we do. The realisation of this initiative is also a story of cross-business collaboration. When we unlock the potential of the Group, it is clear we have the scale and expertise to deliver industry-leading products and services.
