Panel discussion - View from the C-Suite

The asset management industry is experiencing a set of unprecedented structural shifts.
These include; a shift in responsibility for long-term savings from state to employer to employee, the value for money of active management being questioned by stakeholders, significant fee compression, an increasing customer propensity to buy products through digital channels, the use of analytics and artificial intelligence to make better investment decisions and increasing expectation that institutional shareholders should exercise greater stewardship over investment decisions.

How should the asset management industry respond?

Three senior Asset Management executives together with the Chairperson of ALFI provide insights into the future of the Asset Management industry
