Vistra 2030: Preparing for a new era of globalisation

Since 2010, we’ve surveyed business leaders, investors and other professionals to better understand the issues affecting global business and how the fund and corporate services industry can help them thrive. Our latest report indicates a new globalisation is emerging, one with rising regionalisation, regulatory complexity and geopolitical tensions.

Navigating complexity

Multinational organisations and investors are recalibrating their strategies and redesigning operating models in response to global headwinds. This evolution will continue to influence what they demand from their fund and corporate services providers.
