Investment complexity, regulatory requirements and a crowded marketplace are squeezing profit margins for today’s asset managers. To stay competitive, they must focus on improving returns, servicing clients and attracting new capital—without sacrificing critical operational functions.

All too often, firms are allocating too much of their scarce resources to non-differentiating activities. They also bear the burden and risk of continually supporting and upgrading technology. Increasingly, they are turning to service providers for easier, more cost-effective and scalable alternatives.

Case Study

Growth and scalability from a managed services solution

A privately held asset management firm with $7.6 billion in assets was leveraging an internally managed system from a leading vendor to deliver data to support the investment management process and maintain their accounting and investment books of record. With new clients coming on board and AUM growing, they needed to add non-strategic, junior staff members to support expanding operational needs rather than investing in continued business growth.

Broadridge provided the firm with a more effective, cost-efficient alternative to keeping their investment operations in-house. Our investment operations platform allowed them to invest more effort and capital into active investment management and other revenue-generating functions. Broadridge provided reliable, scalable accounting book of record operations in a managed cost, low-overhead framework.

As a result, the firm has enjoyed steady growth with AUM increasing from $1.5 billion to nearly $6 billion, and the client base increasing from 10 portfolios and five clients to 50 portfolios and thousands of clients, in less than five years.
