The increasing globalisation of capital markets, tighter regulation and the digital transformation forces asset managers to rethink their operating model. In an environment characterised by low interest rates and low average yields of financial assets and increasing competition from innovative financial companies, the cost pressure is enormous.
Globalisation and digitisation are the trends that are shaping our era, and this challenge must be accepted proactively. Even the competition from non-industry providers must not be underestimated. By focusing on the right point of the value chain and implementing the right strategy (e.g. fully automating processes), new opportunities can be realised both on the growth and cost side. Proper implementation of the digitisation in the target operating model provides a unique opportunity to differentiate oneself from competitors. For example, bringing the automation of processes into the middle office, back office or reporting service, if properly implemented, not only increases efficiency, but also increases the quality for the end customer.
Anadeo advises asset managers and asset management service companies in choosing the right business strategy and implementing the appropriate operating model. Many years of experience in the implementation of front-, middle- and back-office systems with the appropriate modelling of business processes are the central components of our consulting services. Because the definition of a suitable target operating model cannot be implemented in the age of digitisation without specific reference to the processes and systems of the asset manager.
