Our industry is constantly evolving, however incremental changes are hardly noticed.
Our industry is constantly evolving, however 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. The game changer Fintech has not yet arrived in today’s operating model of the asset managers, distribution intermediaries, and service providers. Nevertheless, the movement is gaining momentum. Several driving forces can be identified such as new technologies - AI, robo advisors, big data and analytics as well as regtech. But also new generations of investors desire more proximity with asset managers, a better ability to compare their investments with peer groups, to invest in a socially responsible way, and they are willing to use online investment platforms. Consequently we have chosen the conference subject “Distribution Reloaded” – How can new technologies assist with targeting the investors of the new generation more effectively.
Our speakers strongly believe in the potential of a new way of distribution. Exciting case studies from leading companies like Alpha FMC, BNP, Credit Suisse, fundinfo and GAM are presented, introducing their use cases in the field of point-of-sales and distribution. Our traditional panel with representatives from Black Rock, Credit Suisse, ZKB, ZHAW and Allianz Global Investors will controversially discuss whether a radical rethinking of the funds distribution is needed.
