Covid Scenario

The COVID-19 pandemic that has hit nearly every corner of the planet has had huge repercussions for individuals and communities, businesses and economies. The after-shocks just after the immediate health emergency are already clear: market volatility, asset class shifts, new swathes of corporate debt, entry into a possibly prolonged recessionary period. For the asset management industry, these kind of conditions create a challenging environment in the market that was already undergoing significant change. In recent years, new regulations have increased pressure on margins, the yield from traditional asset classes has been reducing in a low interest rate environment, and the competitive landscape has become tougher through the entry of new digital and fintech players. Despite the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and uncertainty around the full impact on the asset management industry, MAS has already issued few new asset manager licences and registrations since April 2020. It is now working closely with Singapore-based asset managers to minimise business disruptions as well as support them in upskilling and venturing into new business streams. Fund & Assets Managers should continue to invest and position themselves in evolving growth areas such as sustainable investments, private markets and solutions-based strategies, while leveraging technology and innovation as an enabler.
