LONDON, February 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
- Edison Investment Research Financials Sector Report
Edison Investment Research's in-depth sector report on UK wealth managers and retirement solutions providers reviews why these markets offer many years of structural growth well ahead of GDP, stock market indices and, Edison believes, investor perceptions. The top-line growth from normalised levels of savings, individuals replacing employers as the main source of funding retirement, and an ageing population will occur at the same time as the supply of advice is falling. In the near term, these sectors, which are equity market sensitive, should benefit when interest rates rise.
