Asian institutions are increasingly leveraging technology to improve the pace and efficacy of their investment decisions and manager selection. As more institutions harness data analytics and generate insights to improve returns, deal sourcing, and manager selection, managers could face tougher selection requirements, expectations, and greater monitoring going forward.

For managers, digital solutions can bring about cost efficiencies and, at the same time, allow for more consistent and objective portfolio construction and management, due to the lower reliance on portfolio managers and their tenures in the event of turnovers. Nonetheless, digital platforms are designed based on varying capital market models and assumptions, human capital, and house views. As we navigate through this low-yield environment, this could act as a stress test and differentiator for managers and their underlying models.
