The fund management industry is continuing to develop at a rapid pace, driven by the growing need for pension and retirement provision and the on-going expansion of the mutual fund market. Company strategy remains paramount as fund managers strive to increase market share domestically and across borders, and issues of scale, structure and expertise remain critical.
