A new way forward: The impact of cognitive technology on the investment management industry

Cognitive technologies are set to disrupt the investment management industry, boosting analytical capabilities, increasing automation opportunities and enhancing the investment decision-making process. The use of such solutions should increase dramatically in years to come, as organisations across the investment management space plan to launch cognitive computing projects. 

A survey conducted by Risk.net and IBM reveals that market participants are aware of the existence of cognitive solutions and believe they could have a significant impact on business areas such as pattern recognition, data discovery and sentiment analysis. In line with this view, many organisations have already or are currently planning to explore the options available in relation to the adoption of cognitive computing solutions.  

This white paper examines the current adoption level of cognitive computing solutions among investment management firms. It also explores how first-mover organisations are planning to take the next steps towards full implementation in order to benefit from more efficient, accurate and in-depth analysis, as well as enhanced investment decision-making capabilities.
