Insight from 2 world-class thought leaders on multi-asset investment products and solutions

Written on 06 June 2019.

Over the last 15 years or so, the investment industry has experienced a series of profound structural changes, and an increasing number of serious new challenges are being faced by both institutional and individual investors as a result of these changes. The investment management industry is actually currently experiencing a profound industrial revolution, which results from the confluence of historically powerful forces. These forces imply a dramatic acceleration in the pace of change on the following two main dimensions, which are reminiscent of industrial revolutions that have impacted other industries: mass production and mass customization.
