16.05 Coffee Break

16.25 The Big Interview

Global custody 2.0.1? How do global custodians stay relevant in a changing world? Custodians and asset servicers have had to win back the trust of asset managers and owners following years of scandals but now they face the threat of displacement from a new wave of more nimble, agile and innovative fundtechs. How are they managing this challenge? How great is the threat? Do asset managers only use their custodian out of reluctance and because there is no one else to use? Or are asset servicers learning to make themselves genuine partners for asset managers?

Clive Bellows, Head of EMEA, Northern Trust.

Chaired by Alan Chalmers, Publisher, Funds Europe

16.55 Panel – life after legacy

It’s been compared to open-heart surgery but is it becoming any easier to replace legacy systems? Are asset managers able to properly decentralise their IT systems and avoid ever being hindered by mainframes ever again? Or is the technology being used today simply going to become tomorrow’s legacy technology even quicker than before?

Richard Clarkson, Principal Solutions Consultant, Oracle

Campbell Brierley, CIO, Calastone

Paul Roberts, CEO, Milestone

Tony Peacham, Head of Data Management and Reporting, Amundi

Chaired by: Bob Currie, Research Editor, Funds Europe
