Seismic shifts in investment management
How will the industry respond?
The UK investment management industry, in all its shapes and sizes, is undergoing vast and continued structural change. It is no longer just a matter of fee pressure driven by institutional clients that investment managers need to contend with – there are some far greater forces radically reshaping the industry.
Against this backdrop, this research, conducted by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) on our behalf, analyses the drivers behind these fundamental changes for UK-based global traditional asset managers. It is clear from the research that the seismic shifts taking place in the industry and across an asset manager's value chain are revealing white-space opportunities – and threats. Asset managers need to understand where the industry is headed and adapt their model for these long-term changes to stay ahead of the competition.
