The State of Digital Readiness of the Asset Management Industry 2019


Asset Management is experiencing significant change, driven by regulatory, technological and client related elements. Digital Transformation is a key theme which links these. This survey is designed to be a barometer of how far the industry is progressing with its digital transformation journey.

The response to the initial stage of our 2019 wave 2 study came from 31 of the worlds top Asset Management firms operating across EMEA, US & APAC. Survey respondents have included a mix of CMOs, Digital Directors, Chief Digital Officers and Technology Leaders with a responsibility for Digital.

We refer to “digital” as a mix of touchpoints, functionality propositions, delivery of data & content – all supported by underlying technology. We cover nine main areas, from the role and importance of digital and level of digital ambition within organisations, through to the perceived challenges in delivering on these objectives.
