MJ Hudson Unveils New Research Report on Post-Brexit Asset Management Industry

MJ Hudson is pleased to announce the publication of volume 1 of its Brexit research: Wow! That’s What I Call the Asset Management Industry Post Brexit: Vol 1. (or WTWICTAMIPB Vol 1 for short). The report’s design is inspired by the UK music charts of 1990 – a year when European issues also resulted in a Conservative Prime Minister leaving their office without the need of a General Election.

The research, conducted and analysed by MJ Hudson’s IR and Marketing team, owes a significant debt to the 300+ fund managers and fund investors who participated. We thank them for supporting this project and for sharing their hopes, concerns and insightful thoughts with us.

In two volumes, the study looks, firstly, at expectations for the negotiation process, the relationship between the UK and broader European asset management industries and reactions to the referendum result in the UK and abroad.

Vol 2 will focus on the choices for managers and investors in a post-Brexit world, including the impact on the UK industry and individual asset classes.

As well as sharing the data from our survey, we have reached out to the MJ Hudson network and include opinion and commentary from fund managers, investors and industry bodies, all of whom are affected by the referendum result.

Matthew Craig-Greene, Managing Director of MJ Hudson’s IR and Marketing Division, commented “Our brand-new research sheds light on the drivers behind strategic decision making in asset management firms and at institutional investors, post-Brexit. It is a must read for anyone working in or with the asset management industry in the UK, Europe and beyond. Some of the findings are as eye-popping as the report’s design.”
