Investment Management

Today, institutional and individual investors are increasingly allocating their funds to alternative investments, driving the steady growth of this sector. At the same time, alternative investment managers are facing the challenges of heightened competition and the need to adjust to new regulatory requirements. These factors are creating an urgent need for highly experienced business leaders who have a deep understanding of the capital markets, solid knowledge of the full complement of financial instruments, strong execution skills and the ability to drive business growth.

The changing complexion of the asset and wealth management industry reflects pension reform and a heightened regulatory environment, enormous intergenerational wealth transfer, growing sophistication among retail investors and unprecedented demand for transparency on all levels. New players are continually altering the landscape as clients seek sustainable sources of alpha and refuse to pay active management fees for market returns. Traditional long-only investment firms, hedge funds, investment banks and securities firms, institutional investors and plan sponsors, insurance companies and advisory firms are converging to offer new products, services and delivery platforms.
