CFA Institute Future of Finance 2020 Investor Trust Study has released the fourth edition of its trust survey, Earning Investors' Trust: How the Desire for Information, Innovation, and Influence is shaping client relationships.

The survey measured the opinions of both retail and institutional investors in 15 markets globally, including South Africa. In this report, CFA Institute analyses the dimensions of trust at the system, industry and firm level and finds that investors seek more information, innovation, and influence in their interactions with the investment management industry.
