VIDEO: Swiss WMs reveal how MiFID II research costs will impact fund selection

As MiFID II implementation looms closer, several asset managers have already announced they are going to absorb research costs.

Among the major Swiss firms, Vontobel AM, Bellevue Group, Unigestion, Fisch AM, RAM and GAM have all declared that they will pay for all investment research in preparation for the new regulation.

However, this leaves wealth managers in a difficult position, having to decide whether potential extra costs make some asset management partners less attractive than others. 

In this video we ask Swiss wealth managers whether they are going to stick to their fund picks even if research costs are passed on to clients.
