The asset management sector is increasingly competitive and businesses without a solid strategy are chugging along on borrowed time. It’s crucial to have a detailed business plan, including a definitive blueprint of goals and strategies. Managers must understand many factors, including target markets and investor type. They must also tailor a service proposition to the needs of each.
In addition, if asset managers want to stay competitive, they must welcome and adopt advanced technologies. In today’s technology-driven world, on-the-go handheld devices are a universal part of doing business and the primary tools used by investors and clients. Failing to keep up with the latest tools and technology causes serious roadblocks for asset management firms.
Many asset managers once ruled out the benefits of outsourcing technology. Offsetting this portion of the business tended to make them feel as if they were relinquishing control.
