LONDON, ENGLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 07/07/14 -- A correction from source is being issued with respect to the World Finance press release that was disseminated on Friday, July 4, 2014 at 9:24 am EST. This new release, entitled "World Finance Examines Major Transformations in the Investment Management Industry", replaces Friday's release, entitled "World Finance Examines Major Transformations in the Wealth Management Industry". The corrected release follows.
The investment management industry is acclimatising to a much-changed marketplace and assuming a more sustainable shape. Spearheaded by some of the sector's more innovative names, investment management is an industry transformed, and one worthy of recognition in this year's World Finance Investment Management Awards 2014.
Companies are becoming more selective about who they bring on board, assets under management are on the up, and technology is playing an increasingly important part in meeting client expectations and in negotiating regulatory pressures. These are just a few of the challenges facing investment management companies, and only a handful of the qualities shared amongst the winners of World Finance's Investment Management Awards.
Taking into account performance and achievements over the past 12 months, World Finance has selected the companies that have dealt with the difficult task of streamlining the traditional operating model, whilst at the same time improving client engagement and personal service. "Greater transparency on fee and performance is resulting in a fairly fundamental shift in client expectations, and therefore their wealth managers," says Daniel Diemers, Partner at Strategy&'s Financial Services practice in Europe and the Middle East.
The investment management industry has also been enlivened by a number of new, technologically savvy companies. "The new players are also better at putting clients in control of their portfolios and helping clients co-create their propositions rather than being offered the standard two or three propositions. These new players are often able to offer better price points due to a more nimble and technology enabled operating model," says Sid Azad, Financial Services expert at the Strategy&'s London office.

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
