14th Annual Global CEO Survey

Asset management industry summary
Gearing up for renewed growth

Asset management CEOs are among the most optimistic CEOs in our survey, though this confidence is tempered by a keen awareness of the challenges of increasing regulation, competition for talent and evolving investor expectations. 68% are ‘very confident’ about their company’s growth prospects over the next three years, which is higher than in any of the other financial services sectors and some way ahead of the 51% average for the survey population as a whole. The remaining 32% are ‘somewhat confident’ about the outlook for their companies.
