4) Asset & Wealth Management Industry Insights

  1. Top 3 biggest concerns in next 2 years – inflation, market volatility, interest rate movements
  2. Industry Lack of Experience – Many working in the asset management industry have little or no experience operating in this uncertain economic & high-interest environment, which may be prolonged by labour shortages and geopolitical instability.  While navigating through the immediate storm, they also have to focus on the decisions and investments needed to transform their businesses and deliver long-term viability and growth.
  3. Alpha & Beta – Alpha will be more difficult to find, and the beta from rising markets may be challenged by money market funds and even bank deposits.  Flight from equity to the safer yields of bonds and money market funds.
  4. Portfolio Re-allocation – Significant reallocations: 1) Passive investments as investors look for a transparent, liquid and low-cost option 2) Private markets as investors ramp up the search for returns and hedges against market volatility
  5. Risk for Active Managers in Public Markets – May continue to lose market share
  6. Private Market Managers Target IRR (Internal Rate of Return) – If interest rates linger around 4% through 2024 & beyond, private markets managers will need to significantly raise their target IRR simply to compete, just as tough economic conditions and the end of cheap funding make this more difficult.
  7. APAC, Frontier & Emerging Markets Growth – Asia-Pacific with frontier and emerging markets in Africa and the Middle East, will set the pace of growth in AUM (APAC 50% higher than North America by 2027)
  8. Unique selling point (USP) – Largest players won’t have the scale and expertise to compete in all of today’s emerging markets.  Important to focus on what you’re good at.  Drive efficiency & profitability from being the best at delivering that USP through scale, talent and technology, while rationalising sub-scale areas of your product suite.  
  9. Buy what you can’t excel in – Eg. insurance or specialist lending
  10. Investors data & analytics – Deliver insight and value even when using 3rd-party distributors.  Eliminate sub-scale operations to cut unnecessary complexity & cost.
