2013 Mutual Fund Outlook

Shifting gears for future growth


Current world developments and macro-economic trends signal that 2013 may be a challenging year, both in the U.S. and abroad. But with assets under management now approaching pre-financial-crisis levels, the mutual fund industry has some positive momentum as it heads into the New Year and seems in good position to respond to whatever may lie ahead.

Given marketplace uncertainties, however, careful choices and deliberate action may be needed to help ensure continuing business success. With this in mind, Deloitte’s 2013 Mutual Fund Outlook explores three strategies that will likely shape mutual fund industry priorities in the New Year and beyond:

  • A keen focus on responding to the evolving regulatory landscape and meeting the expectations and demands of regulators, shareholders, and other stakeholders
  • The tactical pursuit of growth opportunities, perhaps including new product offerings as well as a reprioritization of markets and distribution channels
  • A renewed focus on operational excellence across many business functions in order to help reduce costs and risks

Successful mutual fund groups are expected to be able to switch gears or make adjustments where needed, continuing to drive the kinds of changes that have made mutual funds one of the most investor friendly and profitable investment vehicles in the marketplace.
