 “Asian financial services are adapting rapidly as they work to compete across the region and on a global basis,” said David Becker, head of Asia Pacific for Broadridge. “As they extend their operations, they are seeking partners to help them harness technologies and streamline their operations.  Broadridge is a natural partner because of our investments in new technology and continuing innovation.”

“Blockchain and artificial intelligence will be the biggest game changers in Asia since the creation of the Internet. The technology has the potential to redefine capital markets infrastructure,” said Becker. “We are firmly committed to next generation solutions and our innovation agenda to help our clients address transformation challenges and find growth. This will ultimately reduce infrastructure and regulatory costs.”

A recent Broadridge report, “Pathways to Profit: Leveraging Next Generation Technology to Drive Profitable Growth,” affirms that new technology has the potential to drive opportunities for new sources of revenue and cost savings.
