Investment management firms on a tight budget often rely upon portfolio managers or other in-house staff to serve as sales executives.

Like portfolio management, sales and marketing should be a full-time job, with professionals devoted exclusively to this core function.

Third Party Marketers are dedicated sales and marketing resources without the uncertainty, overhead, and opportunity costs of an in-house solution.
