SimCorp, a leading provider of investment management software and services for the global financial services industry, today released an in-depth video describing the benefits American Century Investments has realised since the firm went live on SimCorp Dimension two years ago.
Headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri, American Century Investments replaced its legacy accounting platform with SimCorp Dimension to support expansion of the firm’s institutional and international business. “After two years in production, the investment operations team has greatly benefited from the operational efficiency SimCorp offers,” notes Merele May, Senior Vice President, Investment Operations at American Century Investments. “However, the real winners are our portfolio managers who are confident they have a system in the back office that will support any new client or product they bring to the table.”
American Century Investments has realised numerous benefits from implementing SimCorp Dimension, including:
Support of firm’s investment strategy which has resulted in growth of assets under management from $88 to $118 billion
Reduction in time to market for new securities
Ability to manage 286 portfolios with a lean team of five accountants and a manager
Centralisation of position-keeping provides a single authoritative source of data for accurate positions, cash projections, performance calculations and reporting
“Firms like American Century Investments are true innovators in the use of technology to fuel growth and inspire investor confidence,” comments David Kubersky, Managing Director, SimCorp North America. “This asset manager did not wait for something to ‘break’ before deciding to examine the very infrastructure that supports the firm’s solvency. By creating a central repository of critical financial data, American Century Investments is in the enviable position to respond expediently to any change in the market.”
American Century Investments consolidates all position data in SimCorp Dimension and uses the platform’s integrated functionality for portfolio accounting, performance measurement and client reporting.
