SimCorp has been ranked best in several categories in the annual Chartis RiskTech Buyside 50 ranking.
SimCorp’s solutions were rated highest in four categories in the study that includes the key players within the market.
The Chartis RiskTech Buyside 50 ranking is a comprehensive global study of the leading solution providers to the Investment Management industry.
“Buy-side clients are increasingly showing interest in consolidating legacy pieces of their tech stack, and when they inquire about solution providers that they could legitimately leverage from front-to-back, SimCorp is at the top of the shortlist,” says Sidhartha Dash, Chief Researcher at Chartis Research.
“The breadth and depth of SimCorp’s portfolio management capabilities, and a real-time, single platform data construct with automated workflows let portfolio managers focus on creating value instead of spending time on data management and manual processes.”
The awards are based on a total score aggregated from individual scores across a number of categories. These include breadth and depth of functionality, technology & data development, and customer satisfaction.

Chartis awarded SimCorp top positions in four categories with the following description:
Investment Lifecycle – Overall
This award is based on the breadth and depth of functionality and asset class coverage from front-to-back, combined with the single platform approach and the flexibility of clients to leverage the optimum balance of services and technology to meet the unique needs of each client.
Few vendors offer robust, in-depth capabilities across the investment management tech stack, inclusive of front-office portfolio management and trading through to post-trade and accounting within a single platform – as opposed to bolting various solutions together over time.
Portfolio Management – Enterprise
This award is based not only on the breadth and depth of portfolio management capabilities across traditional and alternative asset classes, but also on the real-time, single platform data construct and automated workflows to let portfolio managers focus on their mandates as opposed to getting bogged down by data management issues and manual processes.
The diversity of the client base across asset managers, asset owners, asset servicers, and insurance companies is also a differentiator for SimCorp in the category.
The basis for this award lies in the flexibility of accounting types supported along with SimCorp’s long-standing reputation and experience as one of the leading accounting technology providers to the buy-side in multiple jurisdictions.
The single data construct inherent in a front-to-back platform combined with data management capabilities stood out from many other vendors where accounting technology is a standalone solution.
Fund Accounting Outsourcing Provider
Although SimCorp’s outsourced account services only launched a few years ago, the basis for this award is rooted in SimCorp’s above-mentioned reputation and experience in the accounting space and based on the flexibility of deployment models, hybrid or fully outsourced.
The formalization of outsourced accounting services is viewed as an extension of an already robust, flexible technology solution based on decades of client support, as opposed to starting a new business line from the ground up.
