Manuel Aramendia, Mirzha and Lannoo, Karel. (2012) Rethinking Asset Management: From Financial Stability to Investor Protection and Economic Growth. CEPS Task Force Report, April 2012. UNSPECIFIED.
The asset management industry has reached an impasse in the wake of the financial crisis and the extensive, ongoing revision of EU regulation. Much rides on its ability to make investment funds deliver better results to its investors. Distribution remains the major stumbling block, but action is also needed to promote the contribution of asset management to the real economy and to preserve financial stability. In response to these challenges, CEPS and ECMI formed a Task Force composed of market participants, international experts, regulators and academics who met regularly throughout 2011 to closely examine the workings of the asset management industry and its contribution to the EU economy. This report draws the link between asset management and several key issues: financial stability, product integrity, investor protection and the real economy. It evaluates the many legislative proposals that are currently under consideration – including implementation of the alternative investment fund managers Directive (AIFMD), the review of the markets in financial instruments Directive (MiFID II) and packaged retail investment products (PRIPS) – as well as the discussions on product integrity in UCITS and ‘shadow banking’. In an effort to make these complex issues comprehensible to a broad group of readers, the report combines clear language and straightforward introductions with detailed analysis and technical illustrations.
