Evolving Investment Management Regulation: Navigating opposing forces 

This year’s report looks at the strain placed on investment managers due to the extraordinary volume of new regulation.

Understanding and complying with so many new rules, some of which overlap or even conflict, requires significant resources and raises a number of business-critical decisions for firms. Key areas are:

 

  • The spotlight created with the potential designation of the largest investment managers.
  • Regulators’ focus on improving conduct and culture of investment management firms.
  • Policymakers incentivizing private investment to fund fledgling enterprises and physical and societal infrastructure.
  • The flux in distribution has some barriers lowered and others are rising.
  • The regulatory data challenge driving firms to build long-term data architecture strategy.
