  • SimCorp scoops three awards in first quarter of 201527 March 2015

    SimCorp announces that it has received accolades in three separate awards in the past three weeks, recognizing the strong performance of its products and client service.

    Earlier this month, SimCorp was awarded Best OTC Derivatives Platform at the Global Leaders in Custody Awards by Global Custodian. It also came out on top in the Asset Management System category in the FinTech Innovation Awards 2015, organized by Bobsguide and PaymentEye. On 26 March, SimCorp’s outsourcing contingency solution was recognized in the FStech Awards in London, in a new category, Financial Sector Innovation of the Year.

    Each of the awards was judged by an independent panel. All panels took into consideration factors such as the company’s innovative approach and the sustainable business benefits offered by its products, each time finding SimCorp’s solution was the winning proposition in the industry.

    Klaus Holse, CEO, SimCorp, said: “It is especially gratifying that two of these awards are about innovation. This is surely a reflection of our commitment to R&D, in which SimCorp invests more than 20% of revenues year after year – way ahead of our competitors. Further, as derivatives are increasingly important in our clients’ investment strategies, we also have to be strong in this area. The recognition received in all three of these prestigious industry forums in the past few weeks demonstrates the multifaceted strength of our offering.”
