Significant market correction, underskilled talent and further margin erosion are the three biggest threats to the growth of Singapore’s investment management industry this year.

That is according to the 2022 Investment Managers Outlook Survey, released on Jan 12 by the Investment Management Association of Singapore (IMAS). Conducted in December 2021, the survey represents the views of 56 executives from global buy-side firms that manage over US$31 trillion dollars in assets.

Three-fifths of the respondents chose market correction across major asset classes (61%) and a shortage of required skills to support future industry growth (59%) as the biggest threats to investment management in 2022, while 55% feared further margin erosion in year three of Covid-19.
