In this digital age where consumers have access to an array of reports, analytics and trends, innovators succeed by leading, driving change and connecting with those who can help make a difference. We’ve spoken to fund and asset managers plus fund administrators and custodians - they’re looking for the winning combination of knowledge and experience to revolutionise their technology and streamline workflows.

The 7th annual Fund Technology, Data & Operations, Europe report will once again be combined with the seventh annual Fund Outsourcing & Administrator Operations, Europe report to create the Fund Technology, Data & Operations, Europe 2017 report. The combined publications will include insights from UK and continental European fund and asset managers on operating a highly efficient and effective investment management business through internal technology integration and partnering with outsourced operations experts.
