10 minute read time

After years of rapid growth, fund finance must adapt to address the challenges of market volatility to meet the demands of funds for greater flexibility and sophistication. At the same time, the sustainability agenda is becoming ever more urgent, both for the environment and for financing itself.

This report investigates these issues through a panel discussion of specialists,  and in-depth interviews with sector experts. The overwhelming conclusion is that fund finance faces a bright future, but one in which it must and will evolve.

Sitting at the heart is closer, longer-term relationships. Finance providers must become partners to their fund clients, working together on sustainability and creating more sophisticated and flexible solutions. Such a partnership approach will ensure that fund finance continues to grow and deliver ever greater value to the funds industry.
