Wealth Management 2021

With the dust from Brexit starting to settle and plans being laid for a reopening after COVID 19; what now for the asset and wealth management industry? Have these two events shifted the tectonic plates of the sector, or, in six months’ time will we be back to an “old” normal of industry consolidation, implementation of the next regulatory change, continuing the good fight for cost reduction and making more effective use of technology? 

In partnership with cashfac.com, Goodacre is conducting research into the sector and securing views and input from those in the business. The project will run for two months and all firms in the sector from the UK – or planning to operate in the UK - are invited to take part. The report will provide participants and the media with an accurate and informed assessment of the UK asset and wealth management industry from those in the know.  

Information provided generally will not be directly attributed to subscribers and the resulting report and conference will present the output in a collective manner. Where comments are made which may be considered useful to the subsequent report, subscribers will be asked for their permission for these to be included. All subscribers will receive a summary of the findings and be invited to an exclusive webinar presenting the report’s key findings.

The report will be based on short interviews based around the following questions but we will also be accepting online submissions.
