Asset managers

The asset management industry is transforming. The growing presence of asset owners and the search for returns in a highly correlated market has created significant pressure. To stay ahead, asset managers need to harness innovation towards creating a better customer outcome. This affects not only product but distribution and investment team structures.

The breadth and depth of our knowledge enables us to advise senior leaders, across all asset classes and the liquidity spectrum, ensuring they have the right teams and products for the future.
