TOP BUY-SIDE TECH OPPORTUNTIES - Modern Technology is crucial to investment managers at this time. Here are three basic trade group activities currently being offered to you & your colleagues in order for your team to stay focused in 2020:
1) ALL ROADS LEAD TO THE "NEW IT PARADIGM"
- Many in the industry expect fee income to decline somewhat in the near term due to a push in the direction of passive investing. Accordingly, it makes sense for asset managers to fully assess and use Modern Technology.
Cloud Computing, for instance, offers extensive new technology strategies that can materially enhance investment and trading activities. IT professionals have been ramping up their tech enterprises with Cloud resources and are fully versed on these opportunities. Asset Managers Tech's own leadership includes several IT professionals who are more than willing to articulate relatively new asset management services from the standpoint of what is now referred to as the "new IT paradigm".
2) IMPACT OF SILICON VALLEY ON FINANCIAL SERVICES - What happens in Silicon Valley does not stay in Silicon Valley. The current technology revolution is in its early stages. Asset Managers Tech covers this story and draws analogies from the big picture of global technology and applies them to the asset management industry. Areas of particular interest, for example, would be cyber security and the privacy rights of clients of buy-side firms.
3) EDUCATION - At Asset Managers Tech, we feel industry members can learn even more about Modern Technology (including Cloud Computing & AI) just by talking about these topics between and among themselves. We've tested this concept with industry professionals, and the results are very encouraging. In 2020, our trade group will expand these specialized educational activities. As we do so, we will rely on input from industry members to fine tune this effort.
