The Changing European Fund Distribution Landscape: Philip Kalus, Accelerando Associates

by Jake Moeller.

Philip Kalus, Managing Partner of Accelerando Associates talks with Jake Moeller, Head of Lipper UK & Ireland Research at Thomson Reuters on Thursday September 28, 2016 in London.

The European fund distribution landscape is changing. Europe has some 35,000 mutual funds in the Lipper database – a huge number compared with the U.S. It is facing threats from consolidation, digitisation and legislation.

In this podcast, Philip Kalus outlines how these changes will impact fund groups; their marketing strategies and interface with intermediaries. He also looks at where opportunities might lie for fund houses who are willing and able to adapt to ongoing change.
