Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: BR), a global fintech leader providing communications, technology, data and analytics solutions to financial firms, recently received a number of industry awards in Asia. This recognition follows Broadridge’s significant investments in innovative technology over the past 12 months as well as continued expansion across the region.
“Asian financial services are adapting rapidly as they work to compete across the region and on a global basis,” said David Becker, head of Asia Pacific for Broadridge. “As they extend their operations, they are seeking partners to help them harness technologies and streamline their operations. Broadridge is a natural partner because of our investments in new technology and continuing innovation.”
Broadridge was recently recognized by the following:
- International Business Awards named Broadridge as “Best Financial Technology” for the successful transformation of our client’s post-trade processing operations into an agile platform for growth
- FOW and Global Investor named Broadridge “Best New Product - Collateral Management” and “Best New Product - Post-trade” at the Asia Capital Markets Awards
- HFM Asia Hedge Fund Services Awards 2017 named Broadridge, “Best Technology Provider - Overall”
Building on its leadership position in Asia, Broadridge continues to invest in new technologies, like blockchain and artificial intelligence, to tap into Asia’s growth and help clients get ahead of today’s challenges to capitalize on tomorrow’s opportunities.
“Blockchain and artificial intelligence will be the biggest game changers in Asia since the creation of the Internet. The technology has the potential to redefine capital markets infrastructure,” said Becker. “We are firmly committed to next generation solutions and our innovation agenda to help our clients address transformation challenges and find growth. This will ultimately reduce infrastructure and regulatory costs.”
A recent Broadridge report, “Pathways to Profit: Leveraging Next Generation Technology to Drive Profitable Growth,” affirms that new technology has the potential to drive opportunities for new sources of revenue and cost savings. It finds that financial institutions see challenges in investing and finding the expertise to realize the full potential of disruptive capabilities. The report asserts that a partnership approach is needed to mutualize functions and to accelerate innovation and adoption of new technology to drive profit.
Broadridge will continue to expand its team and invest in innovative capabilities across the region. Broadridge recently announced the appointment of Bob Santangelo as President of International Sales, who will focus on international growth opportunities in EMEA and APAC.
Broadridge will be featured at the upcoming Singapore Fintech Festival on 13-17 November, organized by the Monetary Authority of Singapore. Representatives will be discussing blockchain applications and machine learning in Asia.
