2. What are you looking to work on?
As with all sectors - especially those handling, managing, and moving finances - investment management is currently in a state of flux. Thanks to disruptive forces entering the market and driving competitivity, there is a need to find an edge on the competitors in the sector.
And one way to achieve this is via digitalisation.
Any firm operating within the financial sectors understands the risks of instability to be faced day-in, day-out, and this is especially true with investment management. With global strategies and data-driven insights on the cards, rethinking a business inside-out is central to our technology consulting services.
And we know how to do all that.
Despite being one of the first industries to take things technological, at the core of its future is innovation. Yet rather than simply mirroring components in the sector to bolster one’s own success, innovating the way it does business and how it serves its customers goes hand-in-hand with digital renovation.
Central to the future of the industry is platform-based business models which puts growth at the centre of a business. Paralleling this is rethinking revenue, from which market-making revenue will be passed to alternative firms. Nevertheless, also fundamental to its digital transformation, is the management of the new technology implemented.
Whether it’s the necessary change in operating models or the need to serve the customer at a new level, one thing is for sure: digitalisation is the way forward.
Your team is versed in investment strategy and your employees know asset allocation and asset classes - as investment consultants, we know the rest.
Alongside tapping into the latest digital innovations set to serve the financial sectors is the need to utilise this technology for the customers' sake. At the centre of this is data management:
By harnessing data via analytics and technology, not only can you access customer wants and needs at a far more accurate level, you can integrate this data retrieval across the entire organisation. From there you can reimagine investment management sector in alignment with the customer.
You need to curate customer satisfaction and move with the tide of demand to maintain business stability, all the while upholding the standards required of such complex products and the advice needed to implement them. Balancing the ever-changing technological trends from portfolio construction to pension schemes for your operations and for the customer are feats not to be taken lightly.
The future is digital, and you need to know how to manage it.
Director of Technology, Simply Brands
For those with an ear to the ground, our services carry out a Digital Transformation.
A Digital Transformation rethinks how you manage your employees', your clients' and business’ data, and how you carry out your business operations. Or, in simple terms, a DT is the technological revamp your business needs to stay competitive.
And whilst the investment management sector might strike one as unique, it is anchored firmly in the financial sectors, dabbling with fellow industries that are all supercharging along technological lines. This can often make for a confusing picture, especially with the blurred lines between investment management and asset management.
Nevertheless, both are framed within the same digital changes.
The financial sectors are all about one thing: and that’s the customer. It’s the customer’s money you’re safe-guarding, and it's the customer that’s looking to spend, splash, and save that cash. That means tailoring the in-house experience and digital service is central to your next move, as is applying risk management.
With a bustle of business types filling this sector, and dividing attention with their own collection of complex technologies, this new territory needs navigation specific to your business.
