How can FinTech facilitate fund distribution?
FinTech is more than a buzz word. It is a game changer in the operating model of asset managers, distribution intermediaries and service providers. New investor behaviors are the driver of change and the investment management ecosystem must further increase efficiency and provide a better customer experience. Luxembourg asset servicing firms have a major opportunity to help asset managers and distribution intermediaries to succeed in the change.
Industries are constantly evolving but incremental changes are hardly noticed. Sometimes however, industrial sectors undergo radical changes, where the process of incremental evolution is significantly disrupted by outside technological, demographic, regulatory, or economic forces. In this article we seek to describe the impact of FinTech on the distribution model of the asset management industry and the strategies to be adopted by incumbent actors. Today the FinTech surge is starting to reshape the financial sector on a global scale with a flourish of new actors attracting significant attention from markets, customers, and investors. Several driving forces can be identified:
- New technologies have emerged
- The re-wired investors
- Big Data and analytics
- Uncertainty around FinTech regulation
- Emergence of RegTech
