Managing EUR 200bn and covering an increasingly complex variety of products, asset classes and client segments, while relying on inhouse-built tools and applications, had become unsustainable at KBC Asset Management. To support growth ambitions, they decided to look for a future-proof integrated front office solution.

Get inspired by Klaus Vandewalle, who shares his story on how running SimCorp Dimension’s integrated front office solution has enabled KBC Asset Management:

  • Fully automate currency flows, increasing throughput time by 90%
  • Reduce portfolio rebalancing time for private mandates by 50%
  • Retire more than 50 inhouse-built tools and applications
  • Make daily performance attribution
