Ross Gulliford, Head of Investment Operations at Challenger

“When we implemented SimCorp in 2017, one of our key objectives would have been to reduce our operational risk in the management of the reserve portfolio. That implementation has gone well and we have certainly seen the benefit of reduced operational risk since we have that straight through processing from the front office, to middle office where we have the performance and compliance management, to back office settlement and accounting, so it has achieved its overall objective.”
