The market for services provided by traditional and alternative asset managers continues to grow and expand commensurate with the growth in pension and healthcare obligations of companies and governments worldwide. In addition, asset managers are assuming roles previously performed by Banks who are shedding traditional lending and trading businesses to raise capital and meet new regulations. Employment opportunities at these firms are growing. There are approximately 700,000 people employed by 16,000 registered investment advisers globally working in 50 unique functions. Join us as George Evans of CONVERGENCE explores the various careers in Investment Management.
