Asset management consolidation set to increase

Asset Management M&A activity has recently been on the rise, and it looks like there may be much more in the next few years. According to a recent research report from PwC, one in six asset management firms will no longer exist in 2027.

Some of the reasons for asset manager consolidation could include a desire for a more diverse platform, the increasing cost of operating in such a highly regulated space and the challenges of offering competitive products in multiple specialized distribution channels.

It might be that the future asset management landscape will mostly consist of ultra-large firms that compete for and at scale in multiple distribution channels and small, niche firms that seek to do just a few things really well.
