Over the five-year period, industry revenue is forecast to grow slightly as the financial sector continues recovering from the recession. Since the recession, corporations and financial institutions have focused on cutting costs, managing risk and becoming compliant with a growing number of regulations. This has increased the industry's customer base over the past five years as corporations and financial institutions outsource these functions to custodial institutions. IBISWorld estimates the industry's expanding client base and improved asset prices will help increase revenue. Over the next five-year period, industry revenue is projected to grow more than the previous period, despite global and domestic competition.
