2023 has witnessed a transformative year, marked by innovation, resilience, and adaptation to changing market dynamics. As we draw the curtain on another year, it's time to reflect on the top ten articles that have shaped the discourse and provided valuable insights to industry professionals.

From navigating the challenges of a post-pandemic world to harnessing the power of cutting-edge technology, these articles are a testament to the industry's ability to stay ahead of the curve and offer readers a comprehensive view of the wealth and investment management landscape in 2023.

Here are the most influential and thought-provoking pieces that have captured the essence of a dynamic and ever-competitive sector:

1. Keeping sight of the big picture

ESG, sustainable finance, data, investment, climate litigation and the journey towards a sustainable global economy. Mark Versey, CEO, Aviva Investors joins us to discuss all this and more on the industry keeping sight of the bigger picture of sustainability.

2. How banks are supplementing human expertise with AI to improve financial data quality

While every financial institution aspires to be “data-driven,” the reality is that many firms are still burdened by legacy technology, data silos, and manual processes. Spiros Giannaros, CEO and President, Charles River Development, a State Street Company, explores three ways banks are supplementing human expertise with AI to improve financial data quality.

3. Accessing private assets

Christophe Bavière, Co- CEO, Eurazeo, explores the world of private assets. In this interview he examines how many people don't have access to invest in non-listed companies, why these asset classes haven't been accessible and the challenges that come with investing in private asset classes.

4. All the risks you cannot see

As the contour lines of today’s risk landscape tighten fund managers and allocators not only need to consider market-driven risks, they must also factor in heightened geopolitical risk, cyber risk, ESG risks and operational risks. Hear from Laura Clarke, ClientEarth, Katja Rieger, Ripple Effect, Scott Bevier, JP Morgan, and Norman Villamin, Union Bancaire Privée on the risks the industry need to focus on.

5. Speak up and find your voice

In association with Women In Asset Servicing, we hosted the 2023 Finding Your Voice showcase, which featured five speakers from the WIAS network, LGBT Great and Black Women in Asset management. Using the skills they learnt in a public speaking workshop, they delivered presentations on a subject close to their heart.
Hear from the participants and winners of the 2023 showcase on why this was an invaluable experience and what they will take away from the workshop to help further their careers.

6. A firm focus on responsible business practices

In this interview, Katja Rieger, Founder Ripple Effect and Non Executive Board Member, Swiss Re Insurance-Linked Investment Management AG explores why organisations need to get onboard with ESG investing, how quickly the industry is adapting and the changing workforce.

7. Finding a better income outcome

Newton Investment Management’s CEO, Euan Munro, discusses why he believes the backdrop for equity income investing is favourable in 2023.

8. Harnessing the power of hybrid intelligence for enhanced investment decisions

When investment firm users embrace the combination of human and machine intelligence, or hybrid intelligence, the business benefits include enhanced risk management and more profitable investment decision-making, among others. Ashmita Gupta, SVP & Head of Analytics at Linedata, explores the power of harnessing hybrid intelligence.

9. What does best practice ESG look like across the value chain?

The asset management industry has become increasing focused on the 'front-end' of ESG to the point where we should no longer be letting regulation drive a firm’s approach to ESG. Instead, it is essential for a firm to define its own corporate ESG strategy. Davina Goodall-Smith, Chief Operating Officer, EMEA, Nikko Asset Management Group explores what best practice ESG should look like across the value chain.

Martin Gilbert, Chairman, Revolut, joined us at the IMpower Studios in Monaco, to explore where the industry is at, the importance of incumbents adopting and integrating new technology and innovations and what new companies need in terms of teams and expertise to really succeed in the industry.
