‘Blockchain could be totally transformative for fund industry’ —

FT reports survey that suggests that ‘Blockchain could be totally transformative for fund industry’:

"According to a survey of 125 asset management professionals across fund houses, custodian banks and consultancies, blockchain is expected to be a very disruptive force within the fund industry.

Asked which areas of financial technology will have the biggest impact on the fund industry, 42 per cent of those polled listed blockchain, while 43 per cent nominated big-data analytics, where large sets of information are analysed to uncover market trends or other useful information.

In contrast, only a fifth listed robo-advisers, which provide automated online investment services."
