A walk on the wild side – disruption scenarios in asset management

Asset management is a storied industry with attractive profit margins.  This should make it a prime target for disruption. Could there be a world without funds? Or without fund managers?

CEO panel discussion - Beyond cyclical to structural shifts

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?

Luxembourg: anticipating change, shaping our future and aiming for tomorrow

Luxembourg has a proud history of anticipating the evolving needs of the asset management industry it services. Entering with optimism a new era of “re-imagining” asset management and innovation benefiting investors, can it continue that tradition, and can we define what that future might look like? How is Luxembourg evolving as it welcomes new ideas and entrants, anticipates the future and re-imagines its role as the world’s second largest fund domicile?
