2:40 PM AUM Roundtables: How can you establish when is the right time to start outsourcing operational functions and which outsourcing models are best suited for your business?

With the increased acceleration of outsourcing, to outsource non-core processes or not is no longer a debate and now the focus has shifted to minimising disruption. In these working groups  we will review the key factors for an asset manager to outsource and together create a check-list of main steps to ensure that aligning the organisation for outsourcing is not more time-consuming than executing the outsourcing process itself.
Ø  Assessing the trade off between cost and time - Does outsourcing always remove the burden?
Ø  What operational functions are best suited for outsourcing and which key processes are coming back in-house?
Ø  What is the impact of outsourcing moving into dealing and other specialist functions?
Ø  How can you best establish the middle ground between outsourcing and keeping technology in-house?
