Insight January 2016 Annual Review

As clocks struck midnight on New Year’s Eve, 2015, the markets’ mixed—at best—performance of the concluding year left many fund industry executives with pangs of anxiety about the future. Not only were domestic equity markets largely uncooperative in 2015. Despite robust fund flows, a busy regulatory pipeline and intense competition—including from the nascent robo-advisors and the passive end of the fund shelf—translated into pressure on fees and value propositions.

The inaugural research feature of Insight every year presents a review of the key issues underpinning the development of the investment funds industry in Canada. The analysis is as much about the recent past and current environment, as it is about the future.
