2015 Investment Industry Outlook

Complex ground, new frontiers

In many ways, the investment industry is still among the most nimble and adaptive sectors of the financial services industry, producing tremendous innovation across many aspects of the business. This Outlook, produced by the Deloitte Center for Financial Services, provides an analysis of industry priorities and anticipated trends coming in 2015.

The investment industry faces both challenges and opportunities in 2015. In many ways, the industry is on more solid footing than it has been for quite some time. The US economy continues to improve, although concerns remain in both Europe and some emerging markets. Investors are generally seeing solid performance, and profitability in many sectors is strong. In this Outlook, we highlight three areas that fund managers will need to give their full attention in order to grow: globalization, monetization, and strategic brand risk management.

See below for a high-level overview of the three trends and key priorities for the industry. For the full view into the expected alternative investment trends, download the global report.

This outlook is part of Deloitte’s Financial Services Industry Outlooks series which provides insights and trends for banking, insurance, investment management, and commercial real estate.
