Invest in long-term alternatives
In a market where interest rates are declining, and are currently extremely low, investment managers are looking more towards investment in longer-term alternatives.
- Wide asset coverage
- Automated workflows
- Scalable processes
One of SimCorp’s strategic focus areas is alternative investments. Alternative investments differ markedly from traditional investments in fixed income, equities, and derivatives, and hence they put new demands on our clients’ operations and their operating models. To cater for this, SimCorp is investing to extend its solution to support investments in non-liquid assets that include infrastructure, private equity, real asset, hedge funds, and other investment opportunities.
Private debt – the first delivery
The support for private debt in SimCorp Dimension is the first delivery on SimCorp’s alternative investments strategy. The private debt functionality offers you a completely new and flexible structure for handling loan facilities. The focus is on supporting an effective and transparent workflow covering the investment value chain, while also providing seamless integration with other SimCorp Dimension managers in the front, middle, and back office, such as Asset Manager, Compliance Manager, Performance Manager, Investment Accounting Manager, and Reconciliation Manager.
Covering all asset classes
SimCorp continues to invest in expanding its asset class coverage within the SimCorp Dimension platform, and progress has been achieved within alternative investments and private debt. From a practical perspective, all asset classes can be modelled and handled within SimCorp Dimension’s IBOR. However, as particularly the area of alternative investments is a high-priority focus area for today’s investment managers, SimCorp will continue to develop asset class functionality in the years to come, ensuring a continued broad and deep asset class coverage.
