New technologies and regulatory frameworks mean innovative solutions are needed.

The asset management market is heavily influenced by international trends, which also have an impact in Switzerland. New regulation and a more rigorous approach to supervision are affecting the markets. Although these regulatory changes pose a major challenge for the industry, they also open-up opportunities for market players that implement the new regulations promptly and efficiently. In addition, the progress made on handling large volumes of data is paving the way for customized investment products. However, investment managers are also facing threats in the shape of cybercrime and data protection requirements. KPMG’s teams, made up of lawyers, auditors, tax advisors and real estate specialists, support investment managers across all asset classes and markets.
