What Investment Managers Should Know About the Cloud with Thomas Kim, CEO of Enfusion
The global pandemic has accelerated transformation initiatives as investment managers are looking to partner with new technology and providers to solve their biggest challenges and enable growth opportunities. Embracing the cloud, particularly cloud native solutions, is helping new fund launches get to market quickly while also helping established managers get control of the ‘technology debt’ that is inherent within their organizations.
In a recent ValueWalk’s ValueTalks podcast episode, Enfusion CEO Thomas Kim sat down with host Raul Panganiban for an insightful discussion about a range of fintech and capital market trends, including how investment managers can shift their technology budgets to leverage native-cloud technology and eliminate the disproportionate amount of spend that goes toward patching and maintaining legacy systems which provide little incremental benefit, also known as “tech debt’.
The discussion touches on:
- The acceleration of cloud adoption (7:00)

- The need to control ‘tech debt’ (16:13)
- Expectations for security (24:20)
