Insights from 490+ industry respondents on the biggest changes and toughest challenges ahead
How are ways of working changing in asset management and what does that mean for the future of women in the industry?
Like all industries, asset management evolved significantly through COVID-19. A whole lot has changed, including when, where, and how people work.
Drawing on key findings from the data and supplemented by interviews with industry executives and KPMG thought leaders, The 2021 Women in Asset Management Survey explores how ways of working are changing in asset management and the impact on women in the industry. The overall findings are remarkably consistent across asset classes and firm sizes. Our report:
- Showcases the views of top female asset management professionals on the impact of COVID-19 on women in the industry.
- Analyzes perspectives on remote and flexible work and its effect on career advancement.
- Provides recommendations for how firms can transform their work environment to better meet the unique goals and needs of female talent.
- Paints a clear picture of what the future for women in asset management could look like—if leaders act with purpose and vision today.
What does increased flexibility mean for women working in asset management? Does it grant them more power, or is it a hidden peril? I think flexibility means POWER. Men and women will both take advantage of the new hybrid working model, but it is important to rethink how we stay connected with our colleagues and clients. We must find new ways to network in this novel environment.
