1. What are the challenges and opportunities for this industry?

The challenges that the industry are facing at the moment relate to the fact that customers really are demanding more, and they're interested in having greater transparency. They recognise the trend towards passive instruments, they want lower fees and they expect their financial services provider to give them better engagement through digital technology. So, I think while that's a challenge, I think it's also an opportunity because there are great opportunities to now build model portfolios using a combination of both active managers, where those active managers can add value, and lower cost ETF products, and to deliver those model portfolios through really engaging technology solutions that provide the customer with his wealth management, anytime anywhere, in a really effortless manner.
