In this 5th and final podcast of the series, Steven Unzicker, Founder of ANZU Research, SEI’s Ross Ellis and Michael Neumann, Head of AI Quantitative Strategies and Partner at Arabesque, discuss how the decentralised model - as characterised by Uber and Airbnb – could inform the future of fund management.
In this latest podcast, we discuss how social media platforms are influencing asset managers, and how they themselves are them to improve client engagement and build brand awareness. The opportunities are huge… but so are the risks to getting it wrong.
Retail platforms, led by Amazon, have revolutionized how we behave as consumers and placed convenience and quality of customer service at the centre of the model. How can asset management firms take lessons from this and could there be a way forward for them to adopt more of a platform-centric way to providing fund services? And in doing so, harness the power of the platform to re-think fund distribution and bring a sense of order to the highly fragmented, chaotic nature of global asset management?
