Asset Management

Asset managers are adapting to the changing needs of buyers, heightened regulatory scrutiny and technology-driven change.

Asset managers are adapting to the changing needs of buyers.

In a low-inflation, low-interest environment, asset managers are engaged in the hunt for higher returns like never before. They are also operating in an increasingly complex regulated market.

Technology is enabling change and creating new channels to the market. Customers can now access information and data through their own research and use of social media may deliver a truly diversified asset environment. But new reporting and regulatory requirements will add complexity.
Shifts in public policy – such as UK pension reform – are shaping customers’ attitudes towards long-term savings and wealth management. This presents both opportunities and challenges. Asset managers must strive to understand the impact of demographic changes to help shape products and engagement strategies while their customers are forced to think clearly about their needs.

With experience built on a wealth of knowledge accumulated through its audit, tax and advisory work for asset managers, KPMG has the depth of expertise to help asset managers through the challenges that lie ahead for long-term growth, and to support them as they grow revenue and increase efficiency.
