NEW YORK, Jan. 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Alpha FMC, the leading global management consultancy serving the asset management industry, working with 17 of the top 20 global asset managers by AUM, announced today it has published its Asset & Wealth Management 2022 Outlook. As the world tentatively emerges from the Covid-19 pandemic, the Outlook focuses on the key roles within asset and wealth management firms and highlights some of the priorities and challenges Alpha expects them to face in 2022.
Alpha has identified five major headwinds that these managers will likely face this coming year, including macro-economic factors, client demands, workforce changes, technology and data, and the competitive landscape. Written by a selection of Alpha’s 650+ global experts, the Outlook challenges firms to identify the right priorities and provides guidance on how they can best execute on those priorities in 2022.
“2022 will be a year where asset and wealth managers continue significant programs of change and transformation across their business,” said Joe Morant, Chief Executive Officer of Alpha FMC in North America. “Across the board, the industry face numerous challenges that could make 2022 difficult if not acted upon in the near team. The continued influence of the pandemic, inflation concerns and political instability all add to client demands which impact investor confidence, asset allocation decisions and margins. The asset and wealth managers who overcome these obstacles and execute flawlessly will seize the opportunities and find themselves ahead of the pack – well positioned to find success in the near- and long-term.”
