Hosking & Co., a Dublin-based asset manager, has implemented Indata’s iPM Epic platform.

The investment manager, which was founded in 2013 by Jeremy Hosking, will use the cloud-based platform for a multitude of tasks, including for its order management and compliance processes, as a centralized data repository, and also as an investment book of record (IBOR).

"After an extensive review of a number of established vendors, it became clear that Indata was the best system to meet our requirements," Simon Hooper, chief operating officer at Hosking & Co., said in a statement. "Now that we have the iPM Epic system in place, we are in a position to effectively manage the firm's growth whilst delivering robust compliance capabilities for our clients."

Hosking & Co. manages global equity portfolios "with flexible investment guidelines for a limited number of institutions worldwide," according to the company's website. In addition to Hosking, the firm was founded by former Marathon Asset Management alums, James Seddon, Jules Mort and Luke Bridgeman.

The Big Data Dilemma

The iPM Epic platform was officially launched in Q1 2014. It is aimed at helping buy-side firms solve for big data-related challenges.

Back in February, David Csiki, managing director of Indata, told Buy-Side Technology that clients wanted to see things like research management and other data sets tied into their various other platforms, under one interface that brings together the trading system, accounting system and research system, and that could handle large amounts of structured and unstructured data.

"You don't want to have to go into different applications to look for different information," Csiki said at the time.
