Broadridge Financial Solutions, a provider of business intelligence for the asset management industry, announced the launch of its next-generation global asset servicing solution on Sunday.
According to the statement, the solution, which was developed with a global tier-one bank for global asset servicing, aims to address the key industry, business, and operational challenges.
Specifically, the firm highlights the inefficient processes currently used in asset servicing, stating they increase operational risks and reduce a company’s ability to control costs.
