Due to the introduction of a vast array of new regulations and growth in client demands for reporting and transparency, fund and asset managers are seeking ever more from their administrative and custodial partners. With a requirement to not just keep up, but excel to win new business, fund administrators and custodians are launching new products and services to keep up with end user demands, whilst continuing to provide cost effective outsourcing services.

The Fund Outsourcing & Administrator Operations, Europe report will bring together chief executives, operations, investment and risk officers, along with specialist heads of third-party management, to examine the evolution of outsourcing arrangements due to market environment, the changing perspective views of outsourcing versus in-housing and how fund managers can deploy an offshore outsourcing strategy for global expansion.
