Asset Servicing Market Trends Include Blockchain

LONDON, July 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to The Business Research Company’s research report on the asset servicing market, the adoption of blockchain technology is gaining popularity in the asset servicing market trends. Blockchain can significantly reduce the volume of paperwork involved in asset servicing and make the trading process more efficient and cost-effective for the business, as well as for the client. Blockchain addresses several challenges in the asset services industry, particularly by overcoming inefficiencies caused by mismanaged data. Capturing data at inception and managing that data through the value chain is a benefit that will result in a continuous cycle of innovation and disruption. The blockchain technology helps to capture high-quality, accurate data, applies data management to correct the errors of mismanagement, and ultimately deploys technology as a tool to disrupt the entire data chain. For instance, in July 2022, Britain’s Investment Association called for the government and regulators to give the green light to tokenized funds using blockchain technology that could make it easier for retail investors to buy illiquid assets. Tokenized funds split their assets under management into fractions, enabling a reduced minimum investment, making them more affordable for small investors. The use of blockchain technology, which underpins cryptocurrencies, to support tokenized funds can also reduce operational costs.

Increasing demand for alternative investments is expected to drive the market for asset servicing. There has been an increasing preference for alternative investments among high-net-worth individuals and ultra-high-net-worth individuals. Alternative investments are financial assets that do not fall into the category of conventional financial assets, such as stocks, bonds, and cash. Examples of alternative investments include hedge funds, private equity, commodities, mineral rights, real estate investment trusts (REITs), art and antiquities, intellectual property, and derivatives (futures, options, and swaps), among others. Investors are increasingly becoming interested in alternative investments owing to several benefits offered, such as diversification, reduction in portfolio risk, availability in private markets, low correlation with other assets, less regulation and relatively higher returns. For example, infrastructure assets are expected to increase from $0.8 trillion in 2017 to $3.4 trillion by 2025. Private equity is expected to increase from $5.3 trillion in 2017 to $10.2 trillion in 2025. Investors are increasingly seeking asset management services to invest in alternative assets. This will drive the asset management market in the forecast period.
