In the following video, Michael Baker, former Senior Vice President of Strategic Implementations, reflects on AIMCo’s journey of growth and success. He elaborates on the role SimCorp Dimension has played as AIMCo insourced all accounting operations, saving CAD 750,000, while increasing STP rates.
Monica McNabb, Vice President, Investment Operations shares her experience as a development partner for SimCorp’s Alternative Investment Manager. Specifically, Monica is extremely proud that through the joint innovation between SimCorp and AIMCo, all data on illiquid assets can be accessed by everyone at the firm who needs it, whether they sit in the front, middle or back office. Additionally, AIMCo has gained a single source of truth across traditional and illiquid assets, with enhanced real-time views to better understand exposure and look-through.
In 2019, AIMCo won a Thunderbird award for their continued success in system consolidation with a multi-asset platform approach to managing alternative assets.
