Megatrends and disruptions: Consequences for asset management

The asset management industry has to face three different types of challenges.

1. First, a new environment, with the rather new fierce competition between bigger and bigger players, with the emergence of new players (SWF, pension funds…), the low rate environment, the changes in regulatory constraints. One of the ambitions of this paper is to present how to cope with the current environment.

2. Second, the emergence of megatrends: how to play demographic challenges, climate change, technological revolution, innovations, how to play social, ethical, and behavioural values… The second ambition is to answer this question: how to invest and make money in investing in megatrends and disruptions?

3. Third, to cope with a real disruption: how will what we can call Watsonisation (the development of cognitive computing), Googlisation (the availability of a greater volume of data), Amazonisation (the power of platforms), Uberisation (hatching new business models) and Twitterisation (doing business in an increasingly connected and collaborative world) … reshape – or not – the asset management industry? Last question to address: how to adapt business models, survive, be efficient and profitable in such a changing environment? Tech remains one of the largest sectors in the world economy, but in today’s new economy, practically all corporations – small and large – are in technology, directly or indirectly.

Some of these questions can be addressed to any company that manages assets and risks: insurance company, pension funds, central bank, endowment, mutual funds…

    Italian political transition following unclear paths. Wise to wait and see

    White papersTue, 22 May 2018

    The political situation in Italy is still uncertain, with some indication, but no formal appointment of the Prime Minister. We may witness a somewhat unusual state of affairs over the next few days, a sort of “technical government” of no parliamentary extraction, subject to a political contract.

    Italy on watch list

    White papersTue, 15 May 2018

    Political uncertainty in Italy remains high. The probability of a Government formed between the 5Star Movement (M5S) and the League (the most voted party in the centre right coalition) has increased in recent days, but the process of government formation is not straightforward.

    Cross road: the landscape of the fixed-income market

    White papersWed, 9 May 2018

    Two events pushed down Eurozone sovereign spreads in 2017: the French presidential election in April & May, which dissipated investors’ fears about Eurosceptic movements, and the announcement on 26 October of a smaller-than-expected reduction in ECB’s QE for 2018 (monthly purchases lowered from € 60 bn to €30bn).

    Rethinking fixed income investing when the easy money is coming to an end

    White papersWed, 9 May 2018

    Core fixed income allocation, usually comprising high-quality government and corporate bonds, has played a relevant role in diversified portfolios over the last few decades.

    Fed vs. ECB. Towards a stronger decoupling of monetary policies?

    White papersWed, 9 May 2018

    US and European economies both continue to expand but at different paces. While US growth will likely pick up this year, boosted by an expansionist fiscal policy, the Eurozone cycle probably peaked last year.
