Fusing Tradition and Innovation in Finance: Embarking on a Dynamic Journey
16th August 2023

Within the realm of finance, an arena driven by ceaseless innovation lies a potent formula for progress: the fusion of tradition and innovation.

Back in 1774, the merchant Adriaan van Ketwich etched his name in history by pioneering one of the earliest mutual funds. This groundbreaking concept enabled investors to amalgamate their resources, granting them access to a diversified portfolio of assets. Fast forward to almost 250 years later, and today’s investors are presented with an ever-expanding array of over a hundred thousand collective investments. These offerings emanate from thousands of astute asset managers, collectively stewarding trillions of dollars. 

In this thriving landscape, the investor’s path to participation is multifaceted. They can channel their investments through various conduits, such as a bank, an independent wealth manager, a fund platform, or even via a fund-of-funds, among others. Asset managers shoulder the responsibility of ensuring funds are easily accessible and ready for investment. 

Although this may appear straightforward, the reality is far from simple. The complexity stems from multifarious questions: In which countries should the funds be accessible? What regulatory requirements must be satisfied? Is a license obligatory? What is the requisite fund data that must be disseminated, and with what frequency should updates be provided, and in what language? What are the cost implications? What avenues exist for investor outreach and asset growth? How does one remain vigilant in the face of dynamic regulatory changes?
