Scalability of operations and the role of technology

-Not available for replay-

The quest for lean processes and scalable operations is at the very core of AIFMs’ transformation agenda. A variety of factors (regulatory pressure, talent supply-demand asymmetry, cost reductions, increasing business complexity) are fueling the need for a review of the foundations of operating models and their fitness for future challenges. Striking the right balance between regulatory compliance and scalable operational efficiency has become a fundamental issue, deeply rooted in the very competitivity/viability of the business. How do market players effectively address scalability issues? How are operating models evolving? What role do outsourcing vs insourcing and core vs non-core elements play? Technology adoption and the degree of automation as well as the evolution of regulatory risk management and talent pool challenges are also part of the equation.

Greening your private debt strategy

The focus on ESG and sustainability is showing no signs of slowing down. Private debt as an asset class is experiencing exponential growth with AuM of private debt funds increasing year on year. What does integration of ESG considerations mean in the private debt context? Will the momentum behind this (relatively) nascent trend continue into 2023 and beyond?
