The Headlines

Earlier this month we hosted a webinar with Informatica, looking at how you can better manage and control your ESG data. With the wealth of incoming regulation on the horizon, it’s a topic that’s coming up increasingly in conversations with our clients. If you missed the live event, you can catch up on-demand here.

Our very own Roshni Daswani, Associate at PEN, has also released this insightful blog that considers how unreliable data may lead to catastrophic outcomes. This blog outlines the fundamental questions you need to be able to answer to ensure your data is in the right position to let you consider talking about change, innovation, investment, or future strategy.

HPS Investment Partners have insisted that they’re comfortable with the plans to move James Hay and Nucleus’s books onto the FNZ platform. The new private equity owners of Nucleus have an existing relationship with FNZ, which lends extra confidence to any pre-deal due diligence. Having lots of experience when it comes to re-platforming and migration in the UK wealth market, we understand the complexities and risks of these projects, so will continue to observe with interest.

The pace at which cryptocurrency continues to make inroads into the investing world is dizzying. The government is due to introduce changes that enable UK fund managers to hold cryptocurrency assets, and as it becomes more entrenched, we expect to see a tidal wave of regulatory changes – both to encourage adoption and to ensure that investors are suitably aware of the risks involved.

Each month we send out a regular email summary of the latest headlines from across the wealth and asset management sector that have caught our eye. If this sounds like something that interests you, please sign up to our monthly headlines here.
