Asset managers become signal providers.

Asset management teams become independent, the asset management market will become decentralized and fragmented, clients will hold the assets directly.

Passive Asset Management mixed with decentralized technology will disrupt and fragment the current asset management industry.

Small asset managers are hindered by regulation.

Now, they can start without assets, just creating asset management ideas.

Tokenization + Smart Contracts + Wallets

The tokenization of assets will change the landscape of investable assets fundamentally.

Smart Contracts can be programmed to transfer assets automatically in the wallets of the clients.

Be happy, the probability of default of an asset manager just vanished. Funds are no longer needed, the assets stay with the clients.


Signals as a Service

The asset manager is becoming a pure SaaS provider, i.e. a Signals as a Service provider.

Will these signal providers still be regulated by the financial regulators?

These signal providers do not handle any assets anymore, they just deliver signals. The transaction itself is taken care of in the wallet of the subscriber of the signal, i.e. the client.
