The evolution of the technology and operational practices of global asset managers has sped up and taken unanticipated turns while they battled the Covid-19 pandemic.
Results from interviews with 200 global executives earlier this year highlight changing attitudes around ESG, risk management and transparency, AI/ML and cloud adoption, among other trends, in Linedata’s Global Asset Management Survey Report, 10th Edition - Building operational resilience and lasting value in an uncertain world.
Key findings and themes include:
- ESG: Sixty-seven percent of asset managers are prioritizing ESG integrations while tough barriers remain regarding data and standards.
- Broad risk management: Cybersecurity risk, in particular, is one of the top challenges faced by asset managers, more than raising assets or attracting clients.
- Cloud attitudes: In 2019, 53% of surveyed managers said their firms would not transition to the cloud. Two years and a pandemic later, that figure dropped to just 5%.
The survey, conducted between May and June 2021 by Aite-Novarica Group, engaged 200 executives at buy-side firms across North America, Europe, and Asia.
