Thriving in a Low-Yield World: Generating Better Returns with Better Systems
Institutional asset managers face a challenging investment environment with low yields and negative interest rates. In order to generate superior returns in this environment, AMs are developing more complex and sophisticated investment strategies that require expansion into new asset classes, currencies, and instrument types.
However, at many firms, inflexible legacy technology is a significant handicap limiting their ability to implement these new strategies. If firms are to continue to attract investors, it is critical to overcome these obstacles to growth.
In this webinar, James Wolstenholme, Senior Analyst, Securities and Investments Group at Celent will discuss the major trends in the asset management industry, the impact it is having on organizations, and why the revaluation of operations, systems and technology is so important to successfully compete and implement overall investment goals.
James Church, VP of Product Management and R&D at FINCAD will explore how a highly flexible, multi-asset portfolio analytics and risk solution can:
- Provide the flexibility to quickly add new asset classes, currencies and complex structures;
- Enable collaboration and consistent risk across the trading and risk management functions;
- Integrate with a firm’s existing trading systems;
- Allow the freedom and control to implement more sophisticated strategies
