The Financial Times and FTfm present The FT Investment Management Summit – Europe, a high-level forum bringing together institutional investors with leaders in asset management to debate and discuss the investment challenges and opportunities of the coming years. 

The fragile recovery of the global economy continues to be weighed down by volatility and uncertainty in key markets.  Ongoing talk of a slow-down in China  combined with the implications of the US Federal Reserve’s tapering policy are impacting on liquidity and confidence, not only in developed markets but also across the emerging economies. How are Europe’s pension funds, sovereign wealth funds and other institutional investors responding to the new landscape, rethinking their investment strategies, manager selection tactics and asset allocation choices?

For asset managers the challenge remains to deliver on the increasingly complex investment requirements of their clients.  How are ever increasing levels of regulation impacting on product development and distribution, and what key changes are likely in the near future?  As investors demand more, how important is client engagement and innovation or is the industry moving more towards a one-size fits all model? As emerging markets fall from favour, where are the new investment and yield hotspots?
