Event Registration - The Future of Asset Management in North America

Wednesday, February 02, 2022
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Eastern Standard Time
The Future of Asset Management in North America


The past 18 months have planted multiple seeds of disruption which are setting a dynamic new horizon of growth for the industry in the coming decade.

Kevin Cho will share the insights from our annual report on the state of the industry: "Crossing the horizon: North American asset management in the 2020s."

This report examines the performance of the industry over the course of the pandemic, revealing a picture of both resilience and change, including the acceleration of long-standing product trends (e.g., ETFs and private markets), the widening performance gaps between the “best” and the “rest”, and a set of discontinuous trends that are emerging at the intersection of a new macroeconomic environment, a generational shift in societal attitudes, business model innovation and rapid technological change.
