    Employers expand new approaches for health care delivery, Willis Towers Watson survey finds

    Employers see value in centers of excellence, high-performance narrow networks, telehealth and virtual careARLINGTON, Va., Oct. 20, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- U.S. employers are boosting their efforts to help employees navigate the nation’s complex health care delivery system. That’s according to a new survey by Willis Towers Watson, which found more employers plan to adopt centers of excellence (COEs), high-performance narrow networks and other alternative delivery models over the next three years. Additionally, employers expect that telehealth and virtual care services, whose use has accelerated during the pandemic, will play a greater role in their health care benefit strategies.The Willis Towers Watson 2020 Health Care Delivery Survey found nearly three in four employers (73%) plan to adopt different health care delivery models over the next three years. This compares with 53% that adopted these models over the past three years. Additionally, 34% of employers currently offer different health care delivery solutions in different markets based on availability and workforce needs. Over the next three years, the portion of employers taking a market-by-market approach will grow to over half (56%).“The cracks in our health care system are much more visible than they were just a few years ago,” said Julie Stone, managing director, Health and Benefits, Willis Towers Watson. “No longer satisfied with traditional strategies, an increasing number of employers are searching for ways to better manage quality of health care with emerging and more cost-effective delivery options.”Over nine in 10 employers (92%) report that they believe COEs will effectively improve the quality of care provided to employees. Over half (53%) report that they offer COEs through their health plans. Other approaches that employers believe will improve quality of care are strategies that focus on specific clinical conditions (82%), high-performance/narrow networks (74%) and accountable care organizations (71%).The study found that the use of telemedicine and virtual care services is burgeoning, and more than three-quarters of employers believe virtual visits will decrease health care costs. In addition to widespread usage of telephonic and video virtual care, 17% of employers plan to implement artificial intelligence-powered chatbots over the next three years.Employers address cost, quality and access to careEmployers are striving to reduce costs and improve access to quality care. Three-quarters of employers expect positive impacts on cardiovascular, cancer and musculoskeletal conditions with third-party interventions, and more than half expect reduced costs and improved quality for conditions such as diabetes, mental health, infertility and maternity care through third-party interventions.The survey also found employers are concerned that employees have adequate access to affordable and comprehensive, high-quality services, especially general services in rural areas. For access and affordability, employers cited specialty drugs, specialty medical care, mental health and substance abuse treatment as their top concerns.“With a shortage of medical providers in remote locations, providing employees in rural areas with adequate access to comprehensive and high-quality health care services has become a greater challenge for employers,” said Drew Hodgson, national practice leader, Health Care Delivery, Willis Towers Watson. “Yet employers have retained a focus on improving health care delivery, keeping their eye on affordability and highly localized solutions.”About the surveyA total of 397 employers participated in the Health Care Delivery Survey, which was conducted in August and September. Respondents employ 7.1 million workers.

    Global asset manager AuM tops $100 trillion for the first time

    Concentration continues among the top 20 managersARLINGTON, Va., Oct. 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Assets under management (AuM) at the world’s 500 largest asset managers exceeded $100 trillion for the first time in 2019 — totaling $104.4 trillion — according to new research from Willis Towers Watson’s Thinking Ahead Institute. This represents an increase of 14.8% on the previous year, when total AuM was $91.5 trillion, and an almost three-fold increase from $35.2 trillion in 2000.The research, conducted in conjunction with Pensions & Investments, a leading U.S. investment newspaper, confirms growing concentration among the top 20 managers whose market share increased during the period to 43% of total assets, up from 38% in 2000 and 29% in 1995. It also shows that, in the past decade, 232 asset manager names have dropped out of the ranking.“The investment industry has always been dynamic, but the pace of change is speeding up, manifested notably through consolidation,” said Roger Urwin, co-founder of the Thinking Ahead Institute. “In addition, rapidly advancing technology is changing the shape of mandates and producing products that require less governance and are more streamlined. This has led to the growth of passive and index tracking, factor-based strategies and solutions. Private markets have also continued a significant growth trend in the past decade, during which investors have sought higher returns involving higher risk.”According to the research, passively managed assets in the survey grew to $7.9 trillion in 2019, up from $4.9 trillion in 2015.“Most asset management processes, including investment, operating and decision making, also must evolve. This is driven by, in particular, asset owners seeking the benefits of outsourcing; the increased use of the Total Portfolio Approach, especially when targeting absolute return; and the use of index tracking in exchange-traded funds, where there is an active choice of the index,” said Urwin.Additional research findings*: * 50% of managers increased the number of ethnic minorities and women at high positions. * Client interest in sustainable investing, including voting, increased across 88% of managers. * 84% of managers increased resources deployed to technology and big data, and 76% increased resources deployed to cybersecurity. * The number of product offerings during the year increased across 65% of surveyed firms. * Aggregate investment management fee levels decreased for 34% of managers and increased for 7% of managers. * 51% of managers reported an increase in the level of regulatory oversight.“The topics of conversation of asset managers are also changing, to reflect changes in client expectations as well as those of their colleagues and broader society. These are increasingly linked to purpose and culture; inclusion and diversity; and environmental, social and governance – and are taking place at the highest levels of these organizations,” said Marisa Hall, co-head of the Thinking Ahead Institute.The world’s largest money managers Ranked by total AuM, in U.S. millions, as of Dec. 31, 2019RankFund MarketTotal assets 1BlackRockU.S.$7,429,632 2Vanguard GroupU.S. $6,151,920 3State Street GlobalU.S.$3,116,424 4Fidelity InvestmentsU.S. $3,043,134 5Allianz GroupGermany$2,539,842 6J.P.
