Join our External Asset Managers Events - Accelerating M&A in an environment of consolidation and regulatory change - Banking blog

Banner blog

The External Asset Management (EAM) sector has started to change dramatically. The pressure of regulatory changes, increased costs, organic growth challenges and requirement for adapted investment offerings have accelerated M&A amongst EAMs considerably in the past 12 months, and we expect this trend to continue in the coming months and years.

We are hosting external asset management events (Lugano 28th of September, Geneva 29th of September and Zurich 26th of October) and will highlight key learnings from recently announced M&A transactions, as well as key considerations for market participants to take advantage of current sector dynamics.

We will have the pleasure to welcome selected leaders from the industry who will share their perspective regarding their recent landmark M&A transactions, and will share key learnings and recipes for success with us.
