Schroder and Aviva Investors CEOs warn of 'unintended consequences' from SMCR

SDR AV +1 more SDR AV AV

Schroders and Aviva Investors CEOs have warned of the dangers of the Senior Managers and Certification Regime (SMCR), which they said could enhance the hierarchical structure within asset management and lead to decisions being made by senior management who do not have the same specialist knowledge in a particular field as employees in the levels below them. Speaking at the Investment Association's Culture In Investment Management event, Peter Harrison and Euan Munro said there would be a number of "unintended consequences" from the incoming regulation. SMCR, which comes into effect for wealth and asset managers on 9 December 2019, is an attempt by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to make senior figures in firms more responsible and accountable for their actions. It added: "SMCR provides a robust framework for individuals and leaders to think about their actions, but this needs to move beyond simple compliance with the rules. What else can be done?" However, Harrison said the new piece of regulation would emphasise the hierarchical structure within asset management firms.

GAM knocks back Schroders' Cantab acquisition attempt - Reports

SDR

GAM knocks back Schroders' attempt to buy hedge fund unit - reports. According to Financal Times, Schroders approached the Swiss asset manager with an interest in its hedge fund business, but the firm rebuffed the purchase attempt due to concerns that selling one of its key assets would render an overall sale more difficult. In recent months GAM has said it is exploring options to maximise shareholder value, including an outright sale of the business, amid mounting pressure on chief executive Alexander Friedman to stabilise the Zurich-listed group. However, GAM's Systematic division has performed relatively well in recent months, as evident from the firm's third-quarter trading update. UBS has recently indicated that it could seek to bolster its asset management division via acquisitions and industry insiders told the FT that buying GAM's Systematic unit could fit in well with its plans. However, analyst at Zurich-based bank Baader Helvea, Tomasz Grzelak said that as a result of the SFr59m write-off at Cantab, the value of GAM Systematic division is now roughly half of what it originally paid for it.

It is understood the bid was rebuffed because GAM’s management felt the wider business would be harder to sell if it disposed of Cantab beforehand. Talk has mounted that GAM would be sold after it was sent reeling by the suspension of absolute return hedge fund manager Tim Haywood (pictured below) over allegations of improper trading and oversight. Cambridge-based Cantab is a systematic quantitative hedge fund business, founded by the former head Goldman Sachs’ European strategies group, Erich Schlaikjer in 2006.
