South African investment management
Preparing for disruption
Deloitte annually shares an examination of the global investment management industry with our clients, giving them an in-depth view of the challenges and opportunities within the market which assists with their vision of growth.
In South Africa, investment management has evolved significantly over the past five years, and in an environment where there is increased emphasis on lower fees, cost and the ever-changing investor needs, it is difficult to find a competitive advantage and remain ahead of the pack. Yes, Investment management is a profitable and exciting business, but there seems to be a blind spot for disruption as the core disruptors go against a set of entrenched principles that have characterised the industry thus far. Therefore, more than ever, it is critical to evaluate the key disruptors in the investment management market to effectively formulate a plan for long-term growth.
