The purpose of this report is to identify new technologies that are potentially useful for asset managers and develop guidelines for the application of selected new technologies for asset/risk management. This report covers the first stage of the project. Stage 1 was for the FY 2011/12 and covers research and information gathering works. The report’s objectives are to identify and describe new technologies and to prepare the scope of work for Stage 2, including technologies to be included in the scope of guidelines to be developed in Stage 2.
