In his new article, Clive Bellows discusses how the asset management landscape is evolving, the themes driving this and his views on the future.

The last decade has seen tremendous innovation by asset servicers, fuelled by automation and technological advancements, as well as the growing complexity and globalisation of the investment industry. In a world where cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, advanced data analytics and blockchain are creating both challenges and opportunities, custodians are repositioning themselves for the future.
