Asset Management Market Study

I commented previously on the FCA’s Asset Management Market Study, which suggested there was weak competition in this market. Needless to say, most asset managers do not seem to agree.

ShareSoc has now submitted a response to the questions raised in that document which you can read here: http://www.sharesoc.org/Asset-Management-Market-Study-Response-2017-02-21.pdf

In summary, we agree with the general conclusions and support regulatory intervention where necessary. We also note that although the study does not address the issue directly of financial education, it is our view that this needs to be substantially improved if the public is to be able to engage with financial professionals and make their own informed decisions.

Please read our more detailed response for our answers to all the questions posed.
