Challenges and trends in the B2B funds market according to EY

New digital technology, regulations and a limited increase of assets under management: the B2B funds research under the supervision of consultant EY maps the latest developments and trends.

In the coming months, the B2B funds market can expect steady growth. But the industry is also being confronted with a number of important challenges, says Filip Bogaert, partner EMEIA Financial Services ? Legal & Regulatory at EY.

?As a result of the fairly limited increase in assets under management, the profitability is coming under pressure, amongst others due to the growing competitiveness and higher costs.?

New rules ask for a lot of flexibility by companies.

Important generation switch

In addition, millennials, the upcoming middle class and female investors will dominate the market in the years to come, says Filip Bogaert. ?The industry will also put greater focus on new digital services and technology, following the upcoming shift in capital from the baby boomers generation towards a new generation of digital natives.?

Also, the increasing regulations remain important. Filip Bogaert: ?Over recent years, we saw that companies had to revise the organisation substantially as a result of the regulations of MiFID I & II, PRIIPs and AML. We now expect the rise of RegTech (regulatory technology), which will automate certain legal obligations through new technologies. All this requires companies to be flexible.?
