  • Managed services

    The global wealth and asset management industry faces complex challenges of overlapping regulatory compliance requirements, intense competition for new assets and spiraling costs for operations and technology. At the same time, leading firms must focus on their core competencies of portfolio management and client service.

    Managed services solve this dilemma by handling non-core functions, enabling firms to concentrate on their strengths. Managed services span IT, data analytics, finance and reporting and leverage industry best practices, technology and business processes. This creates economies of scale that enhance productivity and control costs.
