Research conducted by Datamonitor in 2007 found that while there was limited impact of supermarkets in terms of trades from individual customers, IFAs and asset managers were making increased use of these online platforms. Fund supermarkets operating in the German market offer a broad mix of investment funds in all asset classes, with some platforms' portfolios extending to in excess of 6,000 domestic and international funds. In addition, a number of supermarkets have diversified their services. Intense competition sees German fund supermarkets offering investors deep discounts on front-end loads for investment funds. Some hosts even waive these fees altogether. These discounts also put pressure on fund managers who are distributing through commercial and savings banks.
