KPMG's second annual Canadian asset management opportunities and risks report outlines the top organizational and industry opportunities and risks as identified by leading Canadian asset managers. The findings reflect over 90 online survey responses from industry leaders over the span of 2016 and 2017.

As the industry, regulatory requirements and business landscapes continue to evolve, it becomes increasingly important for asset management organizations and leaders to remain agile and find innovative ways to navigate the opportunities presented by new technologies, evolving distribution channels, and potential collaborations.

Some of the highlights from the 2017 report:

  • 70% of respondents said that focusing on distribution channels and client needs are a top opportunity in the short term for their organization
  • 58% of respondents said that increasing penetration of existing client base is a top opportunity for the asset management industry as a whole in the short term
  • 64% said that intensified competition and consolidation is the top risk their organization is facing in the short term
  • 64% said that the push for a lower management fee environment is the top risk that the industry is facing in the short term.

For a complete overview of survey responses as well as commentary from some leading asset management professionals on how to position yourself and your company in order to capitalize on opportunities and mitigate risks, read the full report.
