Navigating the Evolving Asset Management Landscape

Some trends are accelerating in the asset management industry that are likely to increase the complexity of challenges for asset managers over the next 12 months to three years. This prediction is based on the trends of the past three years. Asset managers need strategies and solutions to ensure they are meeting their investors’ expectations, even as those expectations evolve with the introduction of new products and technologies.

As the types of products become more prolific, asset managers will want to provide their advice in a wrapper that the end client prefers. This may include retail alternatives, interval funds, ETFs or other fund types. As the appetite for alternatives increases, asset managers need to find creative ways to give their investors the liquidity they need.

The second trend involves the globalization of clients’ books of records. Asset managers need a way to visualize all of their clients across the globe. Previously, those clients would have been serviced through regional offices. Choosing a global transfer agency can help asset managers simplify, streamline and modernize operations, as well as provide a path to new technology and a shift away from legacy platforms.

Third, the distribution model is expected to continue to evolve. In the past, asset managers were manufacturers, but they are now getting into the distribution game via channels like wealth management and retirement. Artificial intelligence is also playing a role, as generative AI can be used to read unstructured data or enhance the customer experience through faster responses.
