Key takeaways for managers

  • The industry, which has grown by approximately 10 percent a year since the financial crisis, is positioned to continue along this growth path over the next 5 years.
  • A large share of the new growth will come from public-sector investors such as public pension plans and sovereign wealth funds.

Key takeaways for regulators

  • Managers have added considerably to their compliance functions since the crisis.
  • Many managers continue to find that increased regulation is raising barriers to entry and driving increased consolidation.

Key takeaways for investors

  • As customized fee and fund structures become commonplace, managers will increasingly position themselves as solution providers.
  • Thanks to advances in liquid alternatives such as Undertakings for the Collective Investment in Transferable Securities (UCITS) and 40-Act funds, a true retail client base will increasingly emerge.
