The future of managing relationships in a socially distant environment
In relationship-driven activities such as network management, market participants are gradually accepting that their roles, duties and traditional ways of working will be totally transformed because of the Covid pandemic. SGSS examines how the custody industry will need to evolve as we settle into this new reality.

The new outsourcing challenges for asset managers
In recent years, asset managers have been facing a complex environment: substantial competition, lower interest rates and increasing regulatory pressure. They are therefore, as already mentioned in the Taking the Long View study published by SGSS in June 2018, actively looking for solutions enabling them to optimise their cost base and improve their operating model in order to remain competitive.
SGSS Global Investment Management Survey
The survey entitled “Taking the Long View” was carried out with 100 senior executives interviewed over the final quarter of 2017 and in January 2018. A series of open-ended questions were asked about the main challenges and expectations around four specific topics: the global environment, clients and strategies, operational strategy and new technologies.
