Reduce operational costs and improve operational efficiency

Like most fund managers, you probably see cost fund management software as a crucial role in ensuring continued profitability. With a range of innovative capabilities, we help to reduce personnel requirements, eliminate manual processes, and minimize exception processing. With an unparalleled number of standardized and automated processes, straight-through processing workflows and single database architecture at your disposal, our fund management software reduce operational risk and costs involved in managing your funds.

Regulatory compliance and client reporting

Expectations on fund managers are changing, with clients and regulators demanding increased transparency and responsiveness. Your fund management software must support new and complex functionality, as well as delivering large amounts of accurate and detailed reporting data to clients and regulators.

SimCorp’s open architecture makes it possible for you to integrate and reconcile data with other systems, if and when needed, in order to achieve consistent and accurate performance measurement, NAV calculations, and to generate accurate reports. SimCorp Dimension also offers comprehensive support for international, regional and local requirements thanks to our straight-through processing capabilities and integrated investment book of record (IBOR).


Mitigate risk with an integrated IBOR

If you’re concerned about market risk, counterparty risk and the risk of non-compliance, we help you to effectively and accurately assess and report such risk to all stakeholders including management, clients and authorities using industry standard key ratios.

Our IBOR ensures you have all position data available across asset classes, and you can apply the same risk models to all data, enabling correct and consistent quantification of risks. The need for you to validate and reconcile data from disparate systems is significantly reduced or eliminated, and data accuracy can be guaranteed, ensuring that analysis and reporting is based on the best possible foundation. Additionally, with SimCorp’s single database, integrated IBOR and straight-through processing architecture, you can better mitigate operational risk by eliminating manual processes and ensuring decisions are based on up-to-date and accurate data and information.

As a fund manager investing internationally, globalization is a vital element that you need to prioritize. Whether you enter new markets via partnerships, acquisitions, setting up a local office, or running things from headquarters, we can support you. Our focus on extensive localization and support for local regulatory requirements minimizes your time-to-market. Position yourself for growth with the right infrastructure and fund management software in place to handle even the most complicated business scenarios.
