The Panel

Earlier this year, SimCorp asked 100 European buy-side heads of investment operations how they are preparing for the future. In an environment of increasing margin pressure, it is not surprising that buy-side firms are focusing on reducing costs as well as risks. But as investment operations departments look to contribute to their firm’s overall success, it is more important than ever to understand the extent to which system consolidation, better data management disciplines and new technologies can help buy-side firms gain a competitive edge over their rivals.

Among the key issues discussed are: 

  • Key regulatory challenges facing buy-side firms and how they impact operational models 
  • Business functions that buy-side firms are looking to rationalize and automate 
  • How system consolidation and new technologies might impact buy-side firms’ existing operations and data management practices
