As pressure mounts on the fund management industry to drive down costs, manage a heavy compliance burden and remain competitive in the face of new technology-driven propositions, achieving operational efficiency will be crucial in 2018. The need for transparency and desire for increased data sharing and automation is providing a wide range of opportunities for fund service providers that offer solutions on a one off or long term basis to traditional and specialist fund managers. But what can help you stand out from the crowd?

As ever, this year's Fund Services Awards are designed to celebrate companies that offer cutting edge services and solutions to those involved in the fund management industry. An award gives you an opportunity to showcase increasingly sought after solutions and expertise that can give fund management the competitive edge they increasingly need.

This year's ceremony will be held at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower in London on 3rd October 2018, when we will be honouring those service providers who can demonstrate they possess the knowledge, drive and expertise to provide solutions in the most seamless, efficient, innovative and beneficial way to their clients.
