This report identifies gaps between the supply and demand for skills, outlines strategies for career development, and proposes structural changes to investment teams to better leverage diverse talent.
Previous reports in the Future of Work in Investment Management series addressed the context of work and the culture of work — that is, where and how work is done. Both have changed substantially given the industry-wide move to a hybrid work environment, and both continue to evolve as pandemic dynamics vary across markets.
Now we turn to the content of work. In this report, we identify gaps between the supply and demand for skills, outline strategies for career development, and propose structural changes to investment teams to better leverage the diversity of talent and the combined power of discrete but complementary skills. Furthermore, we challenge investment professionals and investment industry leaders — at all career stages — to continue to build their skills and increase their knowledge. An investment industry that prioritizes competency, ethics, and adaptability will be well-positioned to thrive now and in the future.
