Results of the survey conducted by Societe Generale Securities Services in the first quarter of 2024

The first survey carried out by SGSS in 2021 among some forty European investment players (asset managers, asset owners, consultants, associations, etc.) highlighted the rapid transformation of investment models, in line with European regulations, but also the major operational difficulties that these players had to face.

Now that three years have passed, it seemed interesting to review the progress that has been made, the projects that are underway and the obstacles that remain. A series of interviews was conducted between January and March 2024 with around forty fund managers based in the main financial centres of continental Europe.
