Today sees the launch of Living Ratings – the brand and digital intelligence of the world’s leading asset managers 2022, our most far reaching and in-depth proprietary analysis of the sector to date. 

Our highly anticipated report was presented by Living’s CEO and Co-Founder, Kate Shaw, during a virtual event, our sixth annual partnership with the Financial Communications Society (FCS), a U.S. based industry association for financial marketers. The event attracted several hundred attendees from around the world.
