Citisoft recently published Outlook 2020, the latest addition of their annual outlook paper, but instead of looking to the immediate horizon as they have previously, this year they are looking ahead to the next 10 years for the asset management landscape. This change in tack has come from the recent innovative developments from many solutions and service providers, such as Opus Nebula.

It was reassuring to read that the conclusions Citisoft make in this paper perfectly compliment our Reporting as a Service solution and the points we have made over the last few years.

A New Frontier in Asset Management

In Q4 2019, Citisoft surveyed their consultants to see what were the biggest factors driving their projects last year. It won’t be a surprise to many of you reading this, but the two main highlighted drivers were the need to upgrade from older legacy systems and to simplify operating models. These were followed by the standard cost savings and risk management factors of most projects.

As you can see from the table below, with 82% of those surveyed wanting to migrate from legacy platforms and 77% needing to simplify their operating models, it is apparent that many firms wish to remove complexities from their systems and no longer rely on risky manual processes.

As we noticed these trends coming to the forefront of the financial services industry, we created Reporting as a Service, a world-class client and fund reporting system which addresses these top four underlying drivers and by utilising the “as a service” model it can now be easily implemented and used by investment firms of any size.
