London – March 12, 2024 – SimCorp announces the widening of its long-standing partnership with Mitsubishi UFJ Asset Management (UK) Ltd., the European-based asset management arm of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, Inc.  

Mitsubishi UFJ Asset Management (UK) Ltd provides Japanese equity strategies and global fixed income solutions to institutional and discretionary investors. The asset manager has sustained a steady growth in assets under management, securing significant institutional and discretionary mandates.

"To further support our ongoing growth, we’ve strengthened our partnership with SimCorp by increasing the number of portfolio managers with access to SimCorp’s investment management platform,” says David Bourne, Head of Operation from Mitsubishi UFJ Asset Management (UK) Ltd.

Mitsubishi UFJ Asset Management (UK) Ltd has been a client of SimCorp since 2007. Under this new agreement, Mitsubishi UFJ Asset Management (UK) Ltd commits to a longer-term partnership with SimCorp and will benefit from the extended usage of SimCorp’s front-to-back platform. This includes connectivity to DTTC subsidiary Omegeo’s Central Trade Manager for matching and processing trades and the SWIFT financial network for settlement.  

This integration significantly improves the security of processed messages and establishes a robust workflow for the asset manager. 

It has been a remarkable journey collaborating with Mitsubishi UFJ Asset Management (UK) as they expanded their assets under management. We are thrilled to deepen our long-term commitment, reaffirming our dedication to efficiently supporting their ongoing growth
