June 28, 2018

Discussion of the recent impact of diversity, sustainable investment, and other factors on the global asset manager industry.

The Willis Towers Watson Research team has always focused on finding differentiated investment solutions uniquely suited to our clients’ needs. With Willis Towers Watson researchers’ tireless efforts, we believe we have built deep and differentiated knowledge of the global asset management industry and forged relationships with a great number of asset management organizations, including those whom we have entrusted with our clients’ capital.

We use a variety of channels to communicate with the asset management community, including data collection, calls, meetings, conferences, industry events and white papers. The objectives of this communication are manifold: ensuring we always know who are the most skilful and differentiated investment teams in our industry, sharing our thinking on which trends we see among our clients, which solutions are likely to be more in demand and exchanging ideas on how we can work together to change our industry for the better for the benefit of the end saver. We hope you find it useful and as always we look forward to your feedback and ideas.

The key priorities for the Willis Towers Watson Manager Research team in 2017 remained consistent with previous years.
