In 2021, the investment management industry fared well despite the pandemic-driven market volatility. While the overall outlook looks promising as we head into 2022, uncertainty around potential COVID-19 variants remains. This, along with a host of other factors, will likely continue to test investment management leaders as they strategize for the future and come up with credible tactical steps to deliver on their mission statements. Success in 2022 will likely be driven by investment management firms’ ability to create a virtuous cycle of their leadership’s vision, strong talent models, operational improvements, alignment with stakeholder expectations, employee resilience, and strengthening culture.

Here are some of the key findings from Deloitte’s 2022 investment management outlook:

  • Progress toward quantifiable and transparent business metrics can help firms achieve a higher bottom line, financially and socially
  • There’s a need to bring in agility into talent management
  • Digital transformation investments are paying off
  • Although firms are accelerating digital transformation efforts, there appears to be a significant regional difference in the implementation of adequate governance mechanisms
  • Firms using technology to better engage with clients and deliver on their expectations are likely to be more successful
