The Asset Management industry is set for a challenging period ahead as industry and market forces affect the retention and gathering of assets
The increasing cost of regulation, the “barbell affect” and the fall-out from emerging markets have created a testing landscape for the asset management community.
The recent winners have been firms who have offered ETF/Passive strategies and absolute return and multi asset products, while the search for alpha has driven growth among specialist alternatives managers.
However, any increase in returns is being countered by escalating costs as companies invest in new technologies and communicate with increasingly engaged customers.
Odgers Berndtson supports organizations in recruiting the talent to tackle these industry issues.
The US has traditionally been the biggest contributor to growth in Assets for the last decade but the bubble is set to burst. Companies who fail to adjust to increased complexity in regulations, growing customer expectations and the need for improved operational efficiency face challenges if they are to continue to be profitable.
Asset managers and owners need problem solvers who can overcome the challenges and increased competition to achieve success. Odgers Berndtson works with the industry’s brightest minds who have the experience to overcome these obstacles and inspire growth.
