Seismic shifts in technology capabilities, investor expectations related to product offerings and evolving talent pro leneeds are no longer forward-looking items to address — these are front and center for allalternative managers to deal with today.

In many respects, the most common individual strategic priorities identi ed by managers are all intertwined. With most managers focused on asset growth, the successful combination of employing technology to drive investment returns in the front of ce while embracing new technologies and outsourcing capabilities in the back of ce should create an ideal landscape in which alternative investment managers can thrive. However, infrastructure is needed to support these new tools, andthe right talent model is critical to implementing and harnessing the power of today’s technology. Next-generation technology is also becoming a solution to the challenges that managers are facing both in combating margin pressure and in developing an institutionalquality middle and back of ce that investors are coming to expect. These issues,challenges and opportunities are not necessarily new; what is becoming clear is that it is no longer possible for managers to defer on addressing them as the pace of change and evolution continues to accelerate.
