Overview

In recent years, a sustained bull in market in stocks and bonds has bolstered asset managers globally, allowing them to focus on the challenges of shifting investor preferences, elusive organic AUM growth, fee pressure, rising operating costs, digitization and increasing regulation . While these risks remain, a potential end to bull markets will introduce a whole new set of challenges that will change the way managers approach the industry.  

On March 20th, 2019, Moody's will host the 10th Annual Asset Management Conference at the premier venue, The New York Stock Exchange.

The conference will bring together industry experts, senior executives from the asset management industry and Moody’s analysts for engaging thought leadership and unparalleled peer networking. After a decade of record AUM and earnings growth fueled by strong markets, the event will look ahead to the key industry risks that investors will need to focus on in the late stages of an extended business cycle.
