System consolidation is simple and could be highly valuable to your business. Watch the video to see what consolidation looks like and how it can help you get fit for the future.

The investment management industry today is challenged with low yields, a high degree of reporting demands and manual workarounds.

Removing inefficiencies isn’t a choice but a necessity. Yet many investment managers still operate in a patchwork of single-purpose IT systems that aren’t connected, where data doesn’t flow freely and isn’t available in real time.

This patchwork of systems leads to:

  • Increased time-to-market for new products
  • Difficulty supporting regulatory changes
  • Inability to record events in transaction life-cycle or support entire book of business
  • Higher data reconciliation errors and inconsistencies
  • Poor or inaccurate overview of exposure and positions
  • Increased manual labor costs                

At SimCorp, we believe that your IT infrastructure should give you agility, efficiency and control. With SimCorp Dimension, you can consolidate your investment management IT systems and ensure you achieve your growth ambitions – no matter where your business moves.

Consolidating your investment management systems means you can gain:

Transparency
Get intra-day data and a holistic view of exposure and positions

Control
Enable better decision-making through a single source of truth

Agility
Gain more flexibility in your operating model to adapt to market changes

Automation
Reduce manual workarounds and increase process efficiency

SimCorp Dimension offers you all these benefits and more. So, by simplifying your investment management systems, you can make your business fit for the future.
