Kinetic Partners’ Survey Shows Concerns About the New Regulatory Structure

Subscribe to our newsletter

A survey conducted by Kinetic Partners of over 90 senior figures in the asset management, banking and broking industries shows a lack of confidence in future structures for regulating financial services in the UK. Nearly two thirds (65%) were not confident that the post-FSA structures within the Bank of England will be better than the existing situation.

In addition, 57% cited regulation, including the impact of different global standards, as being the greatest challenge to the asset management industry over the next three years. Over 80% of respondents believe that London will maintain its pre-eminence as the centre for the asset management industry over the next three years. In terms of global growth 79% predicted that the Asia Pacific will experience the most dramatic growth over the next five years.

The survey was conducted this week at Kinetic Partners’ 5th anniversary event at the Museum of London. Over 400 members of the asset management, banking and broking industry gathered to celebrate the firm’s success. In 2010 alone, Kinetic Partners has enjoyed revenue growth of 25% and a 27% increase in client roster. The firm expects continued growth and plans to expand their reach further by entering the Asia market, with a Hong Kong office set to open early 2011.

Julian Korek, a founding member of Kinetic Partners, said: “We work in an exciting, dynamic industry at best, but the last two years have been, without a doubt, two of the most turbulent years for the financial services in decades. It is interesting to note that as an industry we are still unsure as to the most appropriate regulatory structures to ensure the success and growth of our sector.”
