Industry Survey – July 2020

Covid-19: A New Landscape Emerges


Around the world economies, governments and institutions are just beginning to absorb the initial shocks of the Covid-19 crisis. The speed and impact of its arrival has tested the operational resilience and organisational structures of all companies, from SMEs to multinationals. Our survey aims to paint a picture of the landscape now–what worked, and what could have worked better?


Our survey respondents show that remote working has not led to a productivity drop; IT infrastructures have largely held up under unprecedented pressure; more flexible working hours and team rotations are manageable. Are we perhaps seeing the ‘new normal’ for tomorrow’s workforce already taking shape today?


Our survey also shows that within the asset management sector, investment plans may be threated but there is still confidence out there. Those best placed to capture forthcoming opportunities are those best able to scale resources and expertise where needed.
