Whitepaper From Broadridge Confirms New Fintech Delivery Model Is Transforming Financial Services Through Mutualized Services

Broadridge | May 12, 2021

According to a recent whitepaper published today by global Fintech pioneer Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc., as the financial services industry faces the new challenges of a post-pandemic world, many companies are starting to turn toward mutualization frameworks for their technologies and operations (NYSE:BR). Mutualization is a process in which members achieve faster access to emerging technology, scalability, and resiliency by saving time, resources, and expense by sharing the advantages of an industry solution offered by a dependable, trustworthy, and neutral third party. Broadridge's Chief Transformation Officer, Michael Tae, said "Implementation of a mutualized model allows firms to increase operational productivity, resiliency and efficiency that are the hallmarks of a modern, modular approach to service delivery." He also adds, “We developed this report after many conversations with clients who shared their interest in mutualization but felt uncertain about where to begin updating their technology functions. This whitepaper serves as both a useful guide to those interested in expansion and an informational tool to firms that are just beginning their technology journey." The recent whitepaper acts as a road map for financial services companies interested in establishing a mutualized service delivery model. The following are some of the paper's highlights: • Mutualization is being driven by four forces: margin and cost constraints, regulatory reform, digitization, and infrastructure shocks. • Long-term mutualization advantages include cost savings, regulatory enforcement, organisational efficiency, and scalability and creativity. • The elements required to create a new mutualized service delivery model. • The core questions that any executive in the financial services industry can consider when they embark on the road to mutualized service delivery.
