Alternative investments

Overcome the operational complexities of managing alternative investments

Several years ago, we asked what asset classes our clients were growing into, and overwhelmingly, firms like yours said alternatives. Now analysts estimate alternative asset classes could reach USD 14 trillion AUM by 2023.

Over 60% of buy-side ops leaders named alternative investments as the most costly and challenging asset classes to manage. Why is this?

As you know investing in alternatives comes with new challenges. You may be using unique systems, specialized for each asset class. Or perhaps you’re managing them in Excel spreadsheets. We don’t have to tell you that the more alternative asset classes you add to your portfolio, the greater need to integrate with risk, compliance, accounting, and settlement.

Manage alternatives in one integrated system

Alternative Investments Manager is the solution for institutional investors who want simplified IT architectures. It’s available as part of the only integrated front-to-back investment management system - SimCorp Dimension. This means you can consolidate and automate your alternative investments across the entire lifecycle, just like traditional asset classes, all within one integrated system. There’s no need to handle alternative investments in a separate application.

  • Get a full picture of your exposure to sectors, currencies, across all assets
  • Cut costs on different interfaces, data warehousing
  • Consolidate risk and performance
  • Speed up the flow of information
