A Harvey Nash / KPMG CIO Survey 2020 industry report

Operational priorities, technology investments, business performance, cloud and data security, diversity and inclusion in Asset Management 

COVID-19 has been an awakening. Most asset managers had convinced themselves that they had time to catch up on the digitization agenda. Now, many know they must expedite their timelines as the leading organizations are already advancing in what could be a winner takes all global marketplace. The anticipated growth in regulatory and tax requirements, diversification of new sources of wealth in emerging markets, and declining margins in the asset management business has forced companies in this industry to revisit how to deliver value to their customers — the ability to provide the right assets at the right time that are driven by client personal and financial goals. For CIOs in asset management, a strong partnership with the business and establishing fully integrated systems, processes, and data will be an imperative to ensure their organization’s success in digital transformation.

In this Asset Management report, we share how being a digital leader differentiates you from your industry peers. We also compare survey results for Asset Management to overall results in these key areas:

  • board priorities and investment 
  • strategy and operating model
  • delivering value at speed
  • people and culture
  • the rise of cyber
  • analytics and insight.
