Our strategic focus
Sanne partners with top tier alternative asset managers, financial institutions and global corporates who require a high-touch professional service due to the bespoke nature of their investment products and activities. These products and activities have become increasingly complex and cross-jurisdictional requiring co-ordinated support across a global platform supported by industry experts in private equity, private debt, capital markets, real assets, hedge and corporate.
Sanne executes this strategy by offering “local excellence on a global platform”. We have built a platform spanning 22 locations with over 1,800 employees that are preeminent in our core markets and are relied upon by over 1,950 clients with AuA totalling in excess of £250 billion. Clients choose Sanne not only because of its depth of resource, but also because of our client-centric approach which focuses relentlessly on delivering quality support.
This client-centric approach is predicated on a professional services philosophy and is backed-up by the assurance of our listing on the London Stock Exchange which provides a credible governance framework for a business with over £250 billion in assets under administration. Listing also means that Sanne can take a long-term approach with clients requiring stability of service over 10-year plus cycles in an industry where the competitive landscape is dominated by short-term propositions.
Sanne’s continued growth has stemmed from the combined effects of investor demand for alternative investment strategies, ever increasing regulatory complexity and the rise in outsourcing by asset managers increasing the size of our addressable markets. The trend towards outsourcing is a result of increasing sophistication among clients in relation to outsourcing together with a desire to rationalise supply chains. In this environment, we believe that Sanne is uniquely placed to meet growing industry needs and is determined to develop a sustainable product that helps facilitate global investment in a responsible manner.
Sanne has a proven track record of finding, acquiring and integrating specialist firms in the administration sector which have enhanced the value proposition of the Group and our services. This activity is essentially relationship driven and uses Sanne’s capital resources to fund acquisitions, strategic investments and partnerships to augment or accelerate growth across one or more organic growth initiatives. These transactions are always undertaken in a responsible manner after careful due diligence to ensure a shared vision and minimise any risks to the Group. Sanne does not specifically target inorganic growth for its own sake.
