When analysed, Calastone said asset managers are less likely to use manual processes than investment managers.
“This makes sense when considering the administrative nature of the processes they’re responsible for and their main role. That is, to remove complexity and streamline processes for fund managers,” read the study.
Almost 600 mutual fund investment managers and mutual fund asset servicers or administrators from global markets, including Singapore, were interviewed for this report.
