At the Inflection Point
The investment industry is at an inflection point, so much so that asset management chief executives have called time on a ‘golden decade’ for their sector.* In this paper, we share key insights from our annual Integrated Trading Solutions Summit.
New innovations and the rapid pace of change is transforming the landscape, even as business models come under scrutiny and emerging challenges around regulation, compliance, ESG and other drivers all add complexity.
In April 2023, Northern Trust brought together the UK-based asset manager community, our Capital Markets leadership team and expert market practitioners and commentators to explore key trends and themes shaping the future of the industry at this time of significant change.
In his opening remarks, Glenn Poulter, global head of Brokerage and Integrated Trading Solutions at Northern Trust, painted a picture of some of the obstacles that asset management has been grappling with. “Whilst we saw growth in our business, 2022 was a challenging year for many of our clients. The continuation of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, the end of austerity – which led to rising interest rates – hyperinflation, rising energy and food prices and uncertainty in global markets where volumes fell sharply, particularly at the end of Q4 last year and also into Q1 this year… and corporate activity all but dried up. It’s clearly a challenging time to be a portfolio manager,” he said.
Over the course of the day, speakers examined the key areas and ways in which the industry is at an inflection point. Learn more in our paper summarising key insights emerging from discussions at our annual Integrated Trading Solutions Summit.
