The most successful asset management companies have broadened their hiring decisions…
Asset management firms invest funds on behalf of their clients, they invest the client’s capital through different investment “classes” including stocks, bonds and real estate. The asset management sector is transforming rapidly with the market becoming increasingly competitive and local and global players moving to regional hubs such as the KAFD, DIFC and ADGM. With changes in the industry, firms are adapting to change, by improving product innovation to keep in line with competitors, managing increasing costs and increasing technology transformation and better digital solutions.
Cooper Fitch has been working with clients in the asset management space since 1997 and has recently noticed the pressure leadership teams are facing as they try to keep up with the pace of change within the business as well as implementing and inspiring a change mindset into all aspects of their culture, including both technology and product innovation. The most successful asset management companies have broadened their hiring decisions to be able to identify leaders and talent from other sectors and backgrounds to be able to support this transformational journey.
