Investment Management – Mergers and Acquisitions

The investment management industry continues to experience significant change – from the way companies operate to shifting investment priorities. Fee pressures and new technologies have players eyeing consolidation while an increased emphasis on digital assets and ESG investing strategies has dominated the landscape.
