It has become a bit of a tradition for us at Kurtosys to do a recap of our best-read blogs for the year. What a year 2022 has been – we’ve all had to adjust to the “new normal”, and with it the way we do business. The last couple of years have fast tracked the road to digitalization for our clients in the investment management industry, and our most popular articles for the year are a great reflection of this.

At the end of quarter one we compiled a selection of notable pieces written by well-known industry observers and advocates of change. All the links provided are well worth a click and download – the material will help all of you who are interested in the industry and are looking to confirm your own thoughts on what is top of mind as we execute our plans over the next few years.
Without exception, digital transformation continued to be the phrase of the year. More specifically, AI / machine learning – to power the investment process; blockchain, specifically outside of the US and aimed at execution, settlement and record keeping, and of course, more efficient data and insight delivery for clients and distribution enablement.

Over the last couple of years, we have seen a significant rise in our clients’ uptake of the Snowflake platform as a solution to their data management needs. While it shares many of the common characteristics of a normal database and is familiar for technologists to work with, its approach to data syndication is really where it has carved out a niche in our space.
Within the space of the last year, we have seen a noticeable uptake in Snowflake for many strategic applications including PBOR (Product Book of Record), ESG, Research and transactional record keeping. It is clear that Snowflake will become a significant component of client reporting and digital use cases. In this article we explore some of the reasons why it has taken hold, and where it might feature in your future operating models.
