Following publication of the FCA’s Asset Management Market Study in the summer, we bring together a panel of experts to discuss its impact on fund management firms and the wider implications for the financial services industry. With the FCA insisting it is not “pro-passive”, how can marketers and the industry reassert the virtues of active investment management? Could there be marketing opportunities from the introduction of all-in fees? And will greater transparency and the FCA’s other reforms help the broader challenge of closing the UK’s “savings gap” and converting savers to the benefits of stock market investment?
