Evolving Investment Management Regulation

Succeeding in an uncertain landscape

We are pleased to announce the release of our seventh annual report on regulation in the global investment management industry: Evolving Investment Management Regulation: Succeeding in an uncertain landscape.

In this year’s report, we look around the globe at how the investment and fund management industry is having to implement new requirements and respond to supervisory requests and reviews. And more changes loom on the horizon, as some jurisdictions face a pipeline of new regulatory initiatives.

The industry is increasingly being challenged about its business model, costs, charges and product disclosures, and its role in global capital markets. At the same time, policy makers seek the industry’s support in providing retirement savings and supporting economic growth.

Key highlights

  1. Policy conclusions of the global regulatory view that investment and fund management activities are “systemically important.” 
  2. Continued scrutiny of firms’ culture and conduct, including stewardship, and corporate and fund governance.
  3. An intensifying spotlight on costs and charges, both their disclosure and pricing levels.
  4. A shifting environment for product regulation, with some subject to new requirements and others being liberalized.
  5. The cross-border distribution of funds is also in flux, with evolving passports and the ramifications of Brexit.
  6. Regulators welcome FinTech innovations, but express increased concerns about cyber, money laundering and terrorist financing risks.
