The art of negotiation among management companies Part.II

Overall, the large organizations are possible for the trading activity in corporate management. The organization currently in place in most societies, is to entrust the job of negotiating with managers Organization. This model is suitable for entrepreneurial companies with a reduced size. For the latter, the separation of functions does not make sense because the economies of scale will not be sufficient to cover investment and fixed costs of a dedicated table. Consideration is still to carry out in order to study the possibility of a negotiating table outsourced Organization if they want to outsource this activity.

Indeed, outsourcing is not always the best answer. The best evidence for activity reporting, which is considered strategic for many players despite the maturity of the market for outsourcing by the Custodians.
