The 2022 title: Human, Responsible, Digital. Economic and social development in the coming decade
The asset management industry has seen enormous growth in Italy and globally. In Italy, it reached total assets of €2,594 billion at the end of 2021. Yet, numbers alone cannot tell the whole story of this change that has experienced unprecedented acceleration over the last two years.
Non-financial variables have grown progressively and continuously in importance, mirroring the increasing awareness of how the economy and society are interconnected. The urgent need to combat climate change has accelerated the emergence of sustainability as a shared goal that encompasses not only the environment, but also social factors and corporate governance.
This creates new challenges for all businesses that are grappling with how they work and what their work entails, leading to new organisational models and pushing the scope of action beyond old boundaries.
The debate between shareholder capitalism and stakeholder capitalism has taken centre stage. In the asset management industry, this has forced an examination of the relations between clients, brokers, asset managers, the real economy and regulators in an effort to have a positive impact on a world that is in the midst of extensive transformation, dominated by technological innovation, changing demographics and new global equilibriums.
Sustainable transition, digital revolution and, above all, the development of human capital are the distinctive features of the future we are still building. This is why, for the twelfth edition of Salone del Risparmio, the focus will be on people and the need for change together, including asset managers, advisers and clients, in order to find a new form of humanism.
7 thematic topics
T1 – ASSET ALLOCATION AND INVESTMENT STRATEGIES
Post-pandemic recovery plans, monetary policy, ecological transition and new geo-political alliances are rapidly driving asset management to play a more systemic role. In this exceptionally complex year, global portfolio managers and experts will be at Salone del Risparmio to debate how to grasp the best investment opportunities.
T2 –PRIVATE MARKETS AND THE REAL ECONOMY
The impetus from tax-income driven recovery plans must be flanked by private capital to successfully relaunch the real economy. This requires opening up pathways to new opportunities for investors and creating room for alternative instruments, even illiquid ones. Individual savings plans, ELTIFs, private equity, private debt, infrastructure and property provide a bridge between savings and growth.
T3 – DISTRIBUTION AND FINANCIAL CONSULTANCY
Changing regulations and digitalisation have redefined the dynamics of consultancy, turning it into a lighthouse for navigating through market uncertainties. Salone del Risparmio provides an opportunity for debate about current changes and the development of potential new distribution models, and product and service innovation.
T4 – SUSTAINABILITY AND HUMAN CAPITAL
Sustainability has truly grabbed the limelight, but not only in an environmental paradigm, but also for social issues and good corporate governance. Asset management has to drive the sustainable revolution and the development of human capital.
T5 – SUPPLEMENTARY PENSIONS
As the average age of the population is moving upwards, but the concept of planning for the future remains shaky, it is necessary to develop complementary pension schemes and long-term investment tools. Such commitment is essential to ensure a serene future for people, while also helping resources to reach the real economy.
T6 – EDUCATION AND TRAINING
Knowledge is power. To protect people with savings and to definitely banish the false myth of the incompatibility between savings and investments, it is essential to push forward with financial education and the training of consultants.
T7 – INNOVATION AND DIGITALISATION
Technological innovation, digitalisation and artificial intelligence are the new frontiers of financial services. Salone del Risparmio is the ideal place to debate the future outlooks and opportunities created by innovation.
