Pension funds are seeking more holistic and collaborative services from asset managers amid greater insourcing and fee pressure. This is a positive sign for institutional asset managers.

At the same time, on the retail front, banks are still the primary channel managers use to promote their retirement strategies and digital initiatives are being introduced at varied paces to retail investors. Much like what’s happening elsewhere in the world, these initiatives have common aims of streamlining operational processes, enhancing user experience, lowering operational and investment costs, and achieving wider outreach. Some managers have also partnered with fintech firms to build robo-advisory solutions. Success is still early to measure, but the push to a digital future is expected to bring many benefits.
