FRANÇOIS MARION, CEO, CACEIS CACEIS provides high quality support for our client’s day-to- day business needs. However, we believe we also have a responsibility to leverage our market knowledge and resources to help clients understand and prepare for the future environment in which they will do business. We are therefore continuing our series of industry research papers, working with PwC Luxembourg, and publishing new research on where the asset management industry is headed. Our research is based on extrapolation of demonstrable trends identified in the industry as well as clear shifts in related sectors, such as banking and insurance, which will have a noticeable impact on the asset management industry. In addition, regulatory issues, macro-economic trends and evolving social demographic factors are also taken into consideration so as to obtain a detailed picture of the forces shaping the industry. Our joint research paper, entitled “Asset Management moves into the spotlight” takes a three-part look at development prospects for the asset management industry in relation to filling the financing gap in the global economy, taking on a greater role in the pensions industry, and leveraging the benefits of doing business in the digital era. At each stage, the report provides practical recommendations for taking advantage of the opportunities identified. The report will be distributed, and presented in plenary, at this year’s Fund Forum International in Monaco. The positive conclusions the report draws provide a strong indication that the asset management industry has growing role to play in the financial sector, and as CACEIS’s business is so closely linked to the fortunes of our asset management clients, it is an encouraging sign for the asset servicing industry as well
