Summary:

As the asset management industry balances the conflicting trends of growth and uncertainty, buy-side firms are taking a hard look at their operating processes. Firms are finding ways to amplify the value they add to core areas, while also reducing their allocation to areas where there exists they can instead take advantage of a community of service providers whose solutions are demonstrably better and more cost-efficient.

In a survey of IT- and operations-focused asset management executives, 83% said they considered operational efficiency to be “somewhat challenging” or “very challenging.”
