According to PricewaterhouseCoopers Investment Management Industry Group, two areas stick out as the most difficult to deal with: overseeing service provider activity and managing brokerage practices.

"The survey results confirm that service provider and brokerage practice compliance will be the most difficult and complex elements of the compliance program to monitor," said Tony Evangelista, a PricewaterhouseCoopers partner and leader of regulatory compliance practice.

Here's a look at which other areas executives are expecting to be a challenge.

Service Provider Oversight 30%
Securities Trading/Brokerage Practices 28%
Conflicts of Interest/Related Party Transactions 16%
Portfolio Management 9%
