Disruption ahead – product success in a rapidly changing world

In our recently released whitepaper,After the Storm: Charting a New Course through Uncertainty,” we examine the importance of asset managers’ ability to provide products and solutions that are unique and differentiated.  This is especially true given that, in the pursuit of goal-oriented outcomes, the market will likely place an even greater emphasis in the coming years on asset allocation at the expense of individual funds and strategies.  We emphasize the importance of product, along with culture and business strategy, in the creation of a disruption-resilient business, and we discuss how asset managers should be thinking deeply about how they will work with wealth managers to provide investment ideas that incorporate their intellectual capital in a low return environment that is increasingly cost conscious.
