OUR FUNDS INDUSTRY - RIPE FOR DISRUPTION?

Platform Dominance

  • 70% of funds in HK distributed by banks, 60% in SG1; extremely high costs to get onto the distribution network.

Business Practices Not Changing

  • Understanding end clients’ needs is paramount to fund managers, ironically lack of access to data is ranked #1 issue2.​​
  • “Culturally, the asset management industry has operated in the same way for the last 30 years so there is not necessarily the understanding or the urgency of adopting new technology”3.​​​

Ideas

  • “There is no product that has been invented in the past 10 years that we need. You could create a perfectly good portfolio from the products created 10 or 20 years ago”1.​

Journey

  • Average person in Asia does not have a proper portfolio and is undermanaged.​
