Countdown to Asia’s leading Investment Management Technology Summit: Will China be a game changer?

By Rainer Fuchsluger

It’s just under a week until the SS&C Investment Management Summit 2017 Asia. Returning to Hong Kong on August 24th, the Summit brings together asset managers, wealth managers, and insurance and government agency executives.

This year’s summit is centered on the fundamental changes within Asia’s investment management sector brought about by rapid FinTech adoption and widespread regulatory changes.

Not surprisingly, China will be a key focus of discussion. The internationalization of the Renminbi, Belt and Road initiatives, and greater regulatory controls are having a major impact on fundraising and investment management opportunities. Just late last month, the IMF raised its forecast for China’s 2017 economic growth to 6.7 percent, its third increase this year. According to PwC’s Global FinTech Survey China Summary 2017, investment management is one of the three key areas which will be disrupted by FinTech in the Mainland over the next five years.

Highlights of the 2017 Summit include:

  • Greater China Investment Management Landscape keynote speech from Arthur Bacci, Chairman of Hong Kong Investment Funds Association and Vice President of the Principal Financial Group.
  • InvestTech Industry Insights from Rainer Fuchsluger, Asia Managing Director, SS&C Institutional & Investment Management, and views on Digital Transformation from David Rhind, APAC Solution Manager, SS&C Anova.
