Where is the industry placing its bets in 2020?

Clarity in an era of change


It is rare to enter a new year with such uncertainty. Financial market outlooks appear uncertain, with a ‘cooling’ likely. Trade-wars and anti-globalisation cloud the horizon. Equally, disruptive technologies will shape new winners and losers. Global investors will turn to new markets for long-term growth.

We may not know how these themes will play out in 2020: but what we can know is how we are each dealing with them. Where are we spending resources, where do we have aspirations for transformation, what markets are we betting on in 2020? Most of all where can we carve out a unique edge?

#thePulse’s research paper aims to give new guidance to participants across the entire investment cycle. Focusing on macro-priorities, regulatory projects, internal priorities and market structures this project is designed to give you complete clarity on where you should be concentrating in 2020.
