The next big thing for our mobile phones

Recommended Posts

Luuk Jacobs

The FlexPai phone offers a tablet-sized screen when open or three separate displays when folded up.


With a new Apple phone X meanwhile costing well over £1,000, the price of this innovative bendy screen phone seems to be a "bargain" for anyone loving their gadget. It equally shows that as a newcomer to the market you can beat others to the game of first launching the long time announced bendy screen phone.


Apple is long rumoured to have one in development and every year it is expected to be their next big launch. However to me Apple has become not necessarily the company that launches innovations the first and is happy to look at how others deal with the children illnesses in the product to then launch their own matured version or with their archest in money just buy up the company and integrate the technology/innovation in their products.


A strategy that has paid off for them and for other giants in other industries (Volkswagen re. electric cars i.e. Tesla)

      Sharing an article co-written by my former colleague Lee Beck on the changing landscape in the distribution of funds in the United States, which we will see happening on this side of the pond, too: https://www.kuduinvestment.com/the-disruption-in-asset-management-distribution-a-qa-discussion-between-kudu-investment-management-and-envestnet/.
      Lee suggests that successful strategic decisions in funds distribution will be formed on the basis of the granular business intelligence that technology now permits. Also, the time of one-size-fits-all marketing predicated on product differentiation is now over; instead, asset managers need to aim their marketing strategy at responding to the actual financial and budgeting needs of their end investors, and not on the intrensic features of the products/funds that are pushed on the market (e.g. rate of return, beta or alpha statistics ...). This requires a major shift in the mind and behaviour of asset management firms, which Lee reckons, calls for significant investment in learning and development in the industry ...

      Chris Skinner, an independent commentator on the financial markets once said, FinTech firms make faster horses but TechFin firms are working with airplanes. Perhaps one of the first technology companies to disrupt the investment management industry is AliBaba.
      6 years on from its introduction, AliBaba's money market fund, Yue Bao is still the world's largest at approx $200bn under management (beating JP Morgan's similar fund).
      In an age where data is an industry in itself, having a significant user base already which trusts your brand and the means to mine consumer data must surely be a strong starting point to disrupt the industry.
      Will other tech giants like Amazon and Google follow suit this year? Perhaps a quicker way would be to acquire other fund managers.
