What Is Asset Management?​

Asset management, also known as investment managaement, is offered by financial institutions to aid high net-worth individuals, businesses, institutions and governments to maximize the value of their investment portfolio over time.

Global asset managers make decisions on behalf of their clients and are required to do so in good faith, although they can operate with a certain degree of risk.

Keeping our finger on the pulse, Rutherford was able to identify the growth of popularity of asset management recruitment. The current state of the economy has encouraged individuals and institutions to look for additional ways to make their money grow and go further.

What Is Asset Management Compliance?

​Asset management compliance can be described as the set of standards and policies a business has to follow in order to meet the financial industry’s laws and regulations - as well as its own rules.

What Are the Different Types of Asset Management Compliance?

Within the investment management industry, there are two types of compliance: internal and external. The former is about dealing with all standards, rules, and policies set by a company - this usually comes from the internal Compliance team as well as senior management.

The latter is about complying with the regulations established by an external party - the government or financial authorities such as the FCA in the United Kingdom or the SEC in the United States. All compliance-related elements and processes must be meticulously documented as audits may happen without notice.

Asset Management: ​Cryptocurrency Recruitment

Asset management recruitment can be applied in various sectors, including crypto. The demand for crypto asset management has grown rapidly, mainly due to the recent boom within the crypto sector.

Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, NFT’s, and Ethereum are a form of digital asset and can come with a volatile nature. For many individuals, navigating through the various cryptocurrency options can be difficult and overwhelming, hence the necessity for financial professionals. Investors are also keen to invest in digital assets to diversify their portfolios and benefit from the upside of this asset class.
