In early 2014, PwC published a report called Asset Management 2020: A Brave New World.
Asset Management 2020 predicted a huge rise in assets over the coming years and rapid developments in the global economic environment have pushed asset management to the forefront of social and economic change. An important part of this change - the need for increased and sustainable long-term investment returns - has propelled the alternative asset classes to a more prominent role in the investment management industry.
In fact, PwC predicts global alternative assets will increase to US$15.3 trillion by 2020. In the lead up to that, the global alternative asset management industry is expected to experience a period of transformation as players calibrate their business and operations and make technology a top investment priority.
To help alternative asset managers plan for the future, Alternative Asset Management 2020: Fast Forward to Centre Stage explores the likely changes in the alternative asset management industry landscape over the coming years and identifies six key business imperatives for alternative asset managers. The report then examines how alternative fund managers can implement and prosper from each of these six imperatives.
