The Swiss independent wealth management industry is subject to a number of new challenges and in such a rapidly evolving business environment it can be difficult to stay at the cutting edge of current industry thinking and best practice.
Do you find yourself asking the following:
-How am I coping with the onslaught of new regulation compared to my peers?
-Am I fully leveraging new technologies, and am I spending enough?
-What are other asset managers planning to do to grow their businesses?
-What does the future hold the Swiss financial sector, and where do I fit in?
Answers to these burning questions and many more will be addressed in a report set to be launched at our upcoming Breakfast Briefing in association with Coutts, in Zurich on 21 November 2013.
We have surveyed front line professionals throughout Switzerland to understand the changing business landscape of Swiss Independent asset management. This important new research is set to help you navigate through potentially turbulent times.
