Methodology - A guide to the results

This report focuses on a research group made up of the largest global asset management firms as ranked by AUM. The firms selected were the top 100 independent brands in IPE’s Top 400 Asset Management survey. Firms that were indistinct from a parent brand already included in the research group were excluded from the analysis.

The group is scored, ranked and analyzed from a dataset of over 12,000 data points collected between July and September 2020. The firms' overall scores are made up of their scores across ten distinct IMC categories.

Brand Awareness

1. Brand Awareness

To formulate our “Brand Awareness” score we utilized the average monthly search volume of each brand. Each firm’s score was then weighted against all the other firms analyzed in the Global 100.

Brand Momentum

2. Brand Momentum

Brand Momentum as a metric is intended to show how well each firm is “cutting through” – i.e. increasing the amount of engaged interest it receives over time.

Share of Voice

3. Share of Voice

Share of Voice ranks firms by how much Tier 1 media coverage they achieved relative to their peers in the rest of the industry over the last twelve months.

Media Sentiment

4. Media Sentiment

Peregrine’s Media Sentiment metric assesses the ratio of positive to negative sentiment achieved by each firm in its media coverage. To ensure robustness of results - given the idiosyncrasies of sentiment analysis tools – multiple sentiment tools were used and scores aggregated.

Google Page 1

5. Google Page 1

Our Google Page 1 ranking was scored against a number of criteria designed to indicate how well a firm “owned” the first page of a Google search for its brand search term.

Social Media

6. Social Media

To tabulate each firm’s Social Media score across each the key platforms – LinkedIn, Twitter and YouTube – our framework was created to consider individual core aspects of each firm’s performance for reach, engagement, frequency of posting and quality of content.

Our SEO score was awarded through banding scores based on the percentage of ‘non-branded’ search traffic directed to firms’ domain sites.
