The future of global distribution

A ten-year bull run has markets touching new highs as investors pile assets into equity markets globally. This same bull run has given rise to passive investments as investors enjoyed an almost straight climb up and the benefit of low costs, but recent pullbacks and the return of volatility have investors questioning their exposures.

Join the Fund Forum community and industry experts as we discuss and debate the future of distribution in Europe and abroad. Hear how the rise of ETFs and passive investments could suffer as investors return to active funds in the hopes protecting against the downside while searching for pockets of outperformance.
