Announcing our new report - The Disrupted Career: Fintech, Innovation and the Future of Careers in Investment ManagementBy Luuk Jacobs
The adoption of FinTech will bring significant changes for the future of Investment Management - from which products are offered to clients and how they are delivered, to the overall structure of the Industry itself. This level of disruption will also impact the future careers of the individuals working in or entering the Industry today.
According to the European Fund and Asset Management Association (EFAMA), there are 610,000 professionals employed directly or indirectly across Europe in the Investment Management ecosystem, with over 100,000 in the UK. Which of these roles could disappear over the next couple of years, where are the opportunities and how should you navigate the disruption?
In our latest report, The Disrupted Career: FinTech, Innovation and the Future of Careers in Investment Management, we explore how FinTech is changing careers across the industry, and how professionals are being impacted by and are responding to these changes.

Disrupted Career Paths
Our report found that very few areas within Investment Management will not be impacted by technological change; the career paths of the future will be radically different.
Professionals will need to embrace a more flexible approach to career planning. In addition, future job growth and progression opportunities will be concentrated in FinTech and in roles driving innovation in existing Investment Management functions.
Will We All Be Coders?
Many professionals will need to develop more technical skills, and not just in traditional technology roles. Even where ‘hard’ skills around coding, AI and data science will not be important, there will be an expectation that professionals will have a more holistic view of how technology underpins the business.
However, this will not negate the importance of soft skills, and blending skill-sets will be critical for the most successful teams and individuals.
With the industry expecting strong growth with a target of doubling of AUM over the next decade, those who position themselves to embrace the coming changes can look forward exciting opportunities.

Brexit, MiFID II, GDPR, Gender Pay Gap and Diversity are the themes we consider top of mind currently which is why we’ve created the Summer 2018 AlgoMe Industry Pulse Report.
We wanted to get under the skin of some of these key events and burning issues for 2018. In doing so, we revealed some very interesting results and statistics.
Given a choice of 7 cities, Dublin, Paris and Amsterdam are the top three choices for Asset Managers, Fintech and Financial Services employees to relocate to following Brexit. While 54% would not consider moving as a result of Brexit.
When it comes to regulation; we are not surprised to find MiFID II and GDPR will affect over 60% of the roles in the industry.
Positively, 59% believe Gender Pay Gap Reporting will improve the career progression of women.
Please read the report for the full information and do get in touch if you would like to know more about your industry workforce.
