Solution Manager - Performance Lens Global Growth Cube
Who you’ll work with

You’ll work in one of our offices in North America as part of Performance Lens, part of McKinsey Solutions and McKinsey’s New Ventures.

The Global Growth Cube is a unique resource that brings together and reconciles hundreds of disparate public and private data sources and overlays McKinsey’s proprietary data from our Global Asset Management Survey to consistently size forty four asset management markets globally; it also incorporates bottom-up views on industry dynamics from our experts across the globe to shape market forecasts.  Our investment in this knowledge asset is grounded in the belief that a highly granular and objective perspective on the industry is critical for helping asset managers make key strategic decisions, whether this be understanding the "granularity of growth", guiding resource allocation, or providing an objective source for assessing market share.

Performance Lens for Wealth & Asset Management is McKinsey Solution that provides fact-based, actionable insights to improve asset managers’ business performance by combining industry-leading data, analytics, and tools with McKinsey’s deep asset management expertise.  For over a decade, Performance Lens has built up a suite of products and services, grounded in McKinsey’s deep industry expertise, to turn data into insights that reveal growth opportunities and business performance improvements asset managers can act on.

New Ventures is a recently formed part of McKinsey focused on fostering innovations driven by analytics, design thinking, mobile, social and other technologies and integrating them into our client work. It is a foundation for—and expands our investment in—our entrepreneurial culture.

What you’ll do

You will lead the specialized infrastructure we’ve built to support annual data updates, enabling a constant path of refinement as and when new data sources become available, broadening the scope and frequency of data/analytics provided, and building out our forecasting methodology in collaboration with another McKinsey solution and the McKinsey Global Institute.

To do this, you will work closely with McKinsey Wealth and Asset Management practice leaders in North America, Europe and Asia, and you'll directly lead a team of three people to coordinate the research gathered by our global network of local country R&I specialists and experts.  Additionally, you'll manage relationships with current (and prospective) subscribing clients, and you'll work with McKinsey client service teams using the Growth Cube with their clients. Ultimately, you will become the face of the Global Growth Cube and be seen as an expert in asset management growth trends globally and by region and country.
