Technology has become a critical enabler for hedge fund managers and the service providers that support them. Managers are increasingly relying on a sophisticated front-office solution to help achieve market-beating risk-adjusted returns. Meanwhile, automated and integrated middle and back-office infrastructures deliver the operating and compliance efficiencies hedge funds need to curb costs and maintain their profitability in an era of tightening fees.
Big data has become one of the most widely used innovative technologies, with most leading hedge fund players’ now consuming vast and varied datasets. In a similar vein, cloud adoption is growing and will remain an important trend in the coming years. While firms used to be concerned about control and data security, those worries have faded as cloud solutions have matured. Mobile offerings and delivery of trading and performance-related information to investors are another work in progress. A majority of capital market firms are at the planning/research stage of implementing artificial intelligence at a minimum, with AI and machine learning approaches used primarily in investment decision-making processes. Distributed ledger technology also has the potential to cause major disruptions in the industry as it offers clear advantages in simplifying and speeding up trade confirmations and settlements.
