This expert report from professionals at the Boston Consulting Group presents a sobering snapshot of the asset management industry. Its global count of assets under management (AUM) increased a mere 1% in 2015, following 8% growth the previous year and average annualized growth of 5% since 2008. Yet some significant sector trends and winning business models have emerged as retail investment enlarged its global share of AUM and traditional core investments lost ground to passive investing, specialties and alternative investments. getAbstract recommends this insightful study to investment analysts, asset managers and financial professionals.
In this summary, you will learn
- What trends have surfaced in the asset management industry,
- Why traditional core investments are declining in popularity and
- Which business models are most likely to succeed in the future.
