Changing the asset management proposition: What does the future hold?

In the not-so-distant past, asset management firms were product manufacturers of mutual funds, ETFs, separately-managed-account sleeves, and other portfolio products. Now, successful asset management firms must make the shift from product providers to solution-based providers. Wealth managers are taking a more prescriptive and consultative approach to wealth management, affecting how firms support and distribute solutions to advisors and shifting the role of wholesaling. What does it take to plug into the new wealth management ecosystem? How can firms take an institutional approach to gain shelf space and a flexible approach to consumption of portfolio expertise? Packaged products still exist, but growth demands new solutions through turnkey asset management platforms, model management, and investment sleeves. 

This panel will discuss:

  • Who manages retail money in the future and how firms of different sizes will compete
  • What tools the new market model requires
  • How distribution is changing, and what tools and analytics are being employed
  • What new and changing roles are emerging
