Lamping launches Reframe
Benjamin Lamping has launched a new strategic advisory service aimed at the alternatives space, Reframe Capital.
Lamping told The Drawdown, “My aim is to help managers set a clear strategic direction and grow their business, from whatever position they’re currently in. Many managers, especially as a result of the pandemic, may need to reassess their business and determine what their competitive position is. I can work with them to define their strengths and weaknesses and then create a strategic roadmap, which may involve repositioning their business, developing a new strategy or products or targeting new client segments.”
While Reframe takes an holistic approach to viewing and working with asset managers, Lamping notes the importance of operational robustness. “Operational excellence is an essential strand of any business. From my experience as a product manager, I can ensure that operational models are fit for purpose, robust, scalable, and founded on an efficient relationship with service providers and vendors,” explained Lamping.
Reframe offers advice and execution across business strategy and management, product strategy, development and management, independent governance – board, product and distribution focus, product and distribution intelligence, and operational efficiency.
Lamping was previously director of global alternative product management at Nuveen. Previously he was SVP, head of product development, investment solutions at Winton Capital Management. Previous roles include senior positions at JP Morgan, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, HSBC and RBS.
