OPTIMIZE YOUR FRONT OFFICE

Reach your growth goals through system consolidation in the front office

Growing assets under management while reducing operational complexity is the only way to compete effectively in these challenging times.

Portfolio managers and traders in today’s environment are feeling the pressure when it comes to growing assets and achieving best execution. Increasing fees, and more structured/illiquid products have added to the strain. As a result, valuations and ‘like for like’ analytics are not as straightforward. Operational complexities such as data reconciliation, accuracy and latency issues, increased M&A activity and the quest for geographical expansion, all contribute to a firm’s risk. 

Simplifying your technology infrastructure is therefore paramount. You need to be able to quickly onboard new clients and new instruments, while continuously adjusting to global regulatory requirements, without adding operational costs. There is an undeniable competitive advantage in being able to act with agility, enabling, for example:

  • Superior investment decisions and portfolio construction analysis
  • Immediate knowledge of a trade that is in breach of policy
  • Real-time access to exactly what is available to invest
  • Single platform support for your LDI or tax sensitive strategies
