The Asset Management Trends Report 2020 surveys the perceptions among asset managers who collectively manage €8.6trn of assets, looking at attitudes towards a range of issues driving industry debates, marketing, sales, communications and product development efforts. This year’s research shows asset managers adopting a realistic approach to ESG, reflecting the ever-increasing competition in this segment of the market.

Miles Donohoe, Director and Co-Head of Investment Communications, comments: “While product proliferation looks set to continue, it is clear that asset managers are taking a more pragmatic stance towards ESG issues. Just 17% of managers surveyed now claim to be pioneers in ESG, compared to 40% last year, with a growing understanding that past credentials and achievements will only take businesses so far.”
