I had another insightful discussion with Seb Dovey of the Scorpio Partnership about how the investment management business model needs to evolve in order to compete in the future. The era where the fund manager wanted to keep a safe distance from the distractions of dealing with the individual investor is coming to an end because these customers have access to more information than ever before.

This means that fund managers are increasingly coming under pressure to provide more useful insights in order to earn the business of a smarter and better equipped customer.

It also means that fund managers may need to consider alternative ways to monetise their knowledge in a world where  investment advice in itself is becoming a product in demand.

Take a moment to listen to our 29 minute discussion. It's well worth the time because Seb shares a number of interesting thoughts
