The asset management industry plays a valuable role in an economy. Asset management companies administer the savings of millions of people and institutions and channel these funds to companies, governments and other organizations impacting economic growth.

In recent years, advances in computational, communication and financial technology have significantly impacted the asset management industry. During this Masterclass, we will identify leading current trends in asset management. In particular, we will look at the proliferation of asset management vehicles, the rapid growth of exchange traded funds, the rise of indexing and smart beta funds, and the downward pressure in fees.
