Fund Focus 2018

The funds industry has undergone rapid change in recent years, spurred by technological innovation. Some managers have embraced emerging technology to record strong returns, while others have adhered to traditional methods of evaluating opportunities.

Either way, managers, investors, service providers, legislators and regulators need to evolve to survive and thrive.
