CMS Funds Mar­ket Study 2021
Peri­od­ic­ally, CMS takes sound­ings on the state of the mar­ket from our funds-re­lated cli­ents. Giv­en the un­pre­ced­en­ted nature of the last 12 months we thought this was an op­por­tune time to look back over the last few years. This study ana­lyses the key mar­ket trends in fund doc­u­ment­a­tion of over 300 funds es­tab­lished in Europe, Asia, USA and off­shore jur­is­dic­tions ad­vised on by CMS of­fices through­out 2017 to 2020. We have also con­duc­ted cli­ent in­ter­views, which are high­lighted in this re­port, and con­duc­ted a se­lect­ive sur­vey of our in­ter­na­tion­al cli­ent base.We trust this CMS Funds Mar­ket Study will be a use­ful guide for both man­agers and in­vestors this year. The size of our deal sample and the range of coun­tries in­volved means that the study should be a uniquely valu­able and rich re­source for man­agers and in­vestors. Our re­search in­dic­ates that funds in­dustry play­ers are clear on how to move for­ward and that, while strategies may have shif­ted, there are reas­ons for op­tim­ism and bullish­ness, un­like the gloom that des­cen­ded after the glob­al fin­an­cial crisis in 2008.Look­ing for­ward we see an act­ive funds mar­ket, with Lux­em­bourg be­ing the jur­is­dic­tion of choice for European funds. ESG is now a key fo­cus for in­vestors. This mar­ket im­petus and reg­u­lat­ory drivers are mov­ing sus­tain­able in­vest­ment from a niche fo­cus in­to the main­stream for in­vestors and man­agers alike. We also see man­agers in­creas­ingly look­ing at the be­ne­fits and im­pact of AI and tech­no­logy with the token­isa­tion of as­sets and the use of block­chain. We see this pace of change ac­cel­er­at­ing.If you have any feed­back or ques­tions, we would love to hear from you.
