Tightening pressure transforms the landscape: The state of asset management

January 10, 2017
1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.


With mounting scrutiny from competitors, investors, and regulators, asset managers face intense pressure to demonstrate value. New competitors are developing alternatives to the traditional fee model and incorporating entrepreneurial technologies to create niche investment strategies. Investor needs and expectations are changing as they demand accessible transparent information. Regulators are introducing new requirements such as the anti-bribery and anti-corruption laws, as well as adding to the burden of existing regulations. Managers of the best-run firms will need to understand this changing landscape and have the courage to follow through with promising innovations that will provide reliable results for their clients.

Learning Objectives
  • Define what heavy, steadily increasing regulation means for your business

  • Recognize how changes affect your business and how your operating model could move forward in one of four ways:

    - Consolidate and merge
    - Ready for sale
    - Change business model
    - Stay the same
