Custodians

Safekeeping assets and minimising risks with value-added client servicing

Constant repositioning in a competitive value chain

The investment industry has witnessed fast-paced globalisation, resulting in the diversification of core activities across the ecosystem of participants. To sustain profitability in a time of lower operational margins, technological advances and automation have become the new pillars of a more comprehensive and streamlined approach to client servicing.

Advances in technology such as DLT, ISO 20022 and fintechs are supporting custodians’ digital transformation in the post-trade processing arena, requiring strong positioning to future-proof their business growth.

This transformation will ensure a comprehensive offering that responds to the front- and middle-office needs of clients while streamlining back-office activities. The future of asset servicing remains challenging in the face of fragmented securities services. Keeping activities client-focused by leveraging technology will empower custodians to provide a holistic value proposition.
