Towers Watson report urges asset owners to learn from corporates

Towers Watson’s latest Global Investment Matters publication says asset owners, such as pension funds, need to become more adaptable to create more efficient decisionmaking in the face of a more rapidly changing investment environment.

The investment advisor suggests in its review of how corporates react to changing environments that asset owners need to grapple with three key factors: complexity, sustainability and market positioning.

Corporates have grappled with complexity, reflecting global expansion, and have come to rely on strong leadership that reassesses the purpose of the business, risk management and decisionmaking processes. Asset owners could learn from this Towers Watson said.

Roger Urwin, global head of investment content, added: “We believe that the world is entering a period of significant change in world economies, politics and capital markets that will fundamentally affect the landscape in which asset owners compete. Those asset owners whose decision making has become more flexible and efficient at handling uncertainty and ambiguity will be more adept at exploiting the potential opportunities available.”
