Top 10 questions to help you consider how you and your investment management business need to respond to mega trends.
In KPMG's Investing in the future (PDF 2.6MB) report, we are not attempting to predict the future. We are simply looking to better understand how megatrends could impact the industry. The spectrum of outcomes is broad and there is certainly no 'one-size-fits all' response.
Some firms may decide that remaining true to models that have served them well for decades is actually the right strategy. Maybe they'll be right – but this has to be a conscious decision, not the result of inactivity or apathy.
However, we firmly believe that the megatrends will drive fundamental changes in what investors of the future need, want and expect. This cannot be ignored and is likely to require a significant reshaping of the industry's model. In our view, simply appreciating that this shift is taking place and pursuing a strategy of incremental change will for many not be sufficient.
