Asset managers should position themselves clearly in order to ensure a profitable and future-proof business.
Over the last few years, the financial sector and thus also the asset management environment have changed permanently - new innovations and increasing competitive pressure result in a growing need for action on the part of asset managers.
On the one hand, well-known trends such as digital assets and sustainability offer enormous earnings potential in the long term. Additional innovations in the product landscape, such as passive investments and alternative asset classes, are increasingly in demand from retail and institutional investors and must therefore be implemented in the strategy in the long term.
On the other hand, the industry is under strong cost pressure as increasing regulatory requirements and the necessary digitalisation of processes demand continuous action.
