Featured Premium Sponsor July 2022: Deloitte
Friday, 01 July 2022
Deloitte’s Investment Management Practice in Ireland is led by 11 partners providing Audit, Tax, Consulting and Risk services.
Its multidisciplinary nature allows for a unique vision of industry wide issues and developments affecting clients.
Several forces are shaping the investment management sector. At a macro level, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has added to the uncertainty from two years of COVID-19. A combination of caution and lower growth forecasts could affect investment management. In unpredictable times like these, higher-risk financial assets tend to underperform.
Money gravitates to lower-risk assets, such as gold, the dollar, government bonds and so-called value equities with higher and more stable dividend streams. Then, looking at challenges specific to investment management firms, talent is the number one issue facing most firms today, followed by how to bring efficiencies to business operations and firms’ operating models.
Additional challenges around sustainability and compliance are also on the agenda.
Organisations should continue to plan for a range of scenarios to effectively navigate the above forces over the coming year.
