Investors speak about returns being ‘lower for longer’. If this is the case, expect continuing focus on costs, because in a low return environment the impact of costs is greater. Investors need to understand exactly how much they are paying and for what. This is true of all asset classes. The priority is ensuring that decision-makers have the relevant information at their disposal. That information must be clear, complete and comparable both between and within sectors. That information should also be conveniently accessible. The priorities together form the Four Cs of cost transparency: clarity, completeness, convenience and comparability.
