Disrupting Wealth & Asset Management: An interview with Amin Rajan

Digital technology has already disrupted many industries, and today it is the wealth and asset management space that stands on the cusp of a digital revolution. Consumer demand, increasing competition from new market entrants and regulatory pressures are driving the speed at which technology is being adopted within these sectors.
Capacity constraints, cultural barriers and concerns over data insecurity have hampered the adoption of digital technology so far; but the tide is now turning....

Jodie Paula Cohen, producer of the acclaimed Digital Technology in Wealth & Asset Management conference, catches up with leading researcher and analyst Amin Rajan to gain some insights into how the industry may evolve and where advantages will be gained:

Questions will include:

- What do you perceive as the most important drivers of digitisation in the wealth and asset management space today?

- How do you see these drivers playing out over the next 12 months?
Which activities in the value chain are most susceptible to digitisation, and which areas should managers focus on?

- What are the key challenges that firms need to overcome when putting in place a digital strategy?

- How are new market entrants shaping the evolution of the sector?

- How are clients responding to digital technology? What are their main concerns and demands?
