The Institute of Economic Affairs is taking a forward-looking view of the strategic issues facing the UK fund management industry as it operates in this increasingly global market at its 3rd Annual Conference on the future of fund management in London next month.
The fund management sector is facing the challenges of globalisation, according to the IEA, because cost pressures are increasing as competition for customers intensifies, making efficiency and correct market positioning vital for success, so the industry needs as much guidance and debate as possible.
The conference will be held at the Radisson SAS Portman, in London on the 22nd and 23rd November, to address the following questions:
Are developments in regulation creating a level playing field across Europe?
If not then how can fund management companies overcome the resulting differences?
How can investments be structured to improve performance in uncertain markets?
To what extent is globalisation and the development of open architecture affecting the distribution chain?
How can the new opportunities in the wealth management sector be exploited?
What can fund managers do to maximise profitability through efficient customer contact?
Speakers include high ranking representatives from UBS Asset Management, Allianz Asset Management, Merrill Lynch Investment Managers, Deutsche Asset Management, the European Commission (EC), State Street Global Advisors UK, Morley Fund Management, AXA Investment Managers, Axa Rosenberg, WestLB Asset Management and Barclays Global Investors.
