The pace of change in wealth and asset management is accelerating, and many factors are dramatically changing the landscape.
The industry is dealing with concerns around trust and increasing clarity around charges. A gender and pay gap around professionals working in the industry is starting to gain attention. The maturing of millennials and anticipation of the generation coming after is causing many investment managers to look at alternative ways to meet the needs of a new and growing customer base. And, of course, regulation is always a factor. Not just regulation in isolation, but in combination with customer demands and technology drivers. All of these factors mean that investment management is ripe and screaming out for transformation.
Finextra, in association with IBM, invites you to an exclusive breakfast roundtable where industry thought leaders will discuss the future of the investment management industry and the possibilities for harnessing digital change. The breakfast will be held at 1 Lombard Street in the heart of the City of London and will feature presentations from industry experts and market participants.
