Publication Restoring Trust: Investment in the twenty-first century

by Luke Robinson _______4th June 2004

Executive Summary

The findings of this inquiry represent a vision of a better investment system, developed by those who work in it.  It is based on interviews and workshops conducted with over 500 people drawn from every aspect of the investment ‘chain’.

The principle conclusion of the inquiry is that while the whole system is relatively robust – and a number of reforms are still working their way through to strengthen it further – there has been a significant and continuing erosion of trust. This is not just in the financial services industry, but also in big companies as stewards of people’s savings and pensions.
