Making the business case for system consolidation
  • UK


Most buy-side firms have grown over the years by way of mergers and acquisitions, which have had a significant bearing on their technology stacks. This has left many firms hamstrung and reliant on outdated legacy platforms and technologies.


The obvious solution for them is to wean themselves off those technologies and implement and single, front-to-back-office platform featuring the flexibility and scalability to support their growth and future needs. But those projects can be complex, costly and time-consuming, even for the smallest asset managers. 


Joined by a team of industry experts, we will focus on the business and operational benefits of implementing a single investment management platform. We will then investigate how buy-side firms can make the business case for embarking on such an initiative.

Discussion points:

  • The business and operational challenges facing buy-side firms that have become reliant on outdated technology
  • How buy-side firms can make the business case for developing and deploying a single investment management platform to support their growth and future needs
  • The key business, operational and technology issues buy-side firms need consider when embarking on a system consolidation project
  • The benefits buy-side firms stand to gain by replacing outdated technology and the specific business processes that will be positively impacted by such a move
  • Results of the system consolidation study carried out by WatersTechnology and SimCorp

Business enablement, transparency and control:the future of managed data services
  • London, UK

Financial services firms of all sizes and in all markets have never been more hard-pressed than they are right now to provide value to their customers and investors, while simultaneously having to manage fixed operating costs and address challenging regulatory mandates. Complex legacy infrastructure often gets in the way of effective data exploration and business insight and increases the cost of change.
Firms are increasingly looking to third-party providers for help with their data sourcing, aggregation and mastering functions. And while cloud-based services took some time to reach critical mass across the capital markets, they are now the only practical way of delivering a growing range of proven products and services to end-users, both to address enterprise-wide data requirements as well as to augment existing infrastructure. Managed data services can bring significantly reduced onboarding times, shrinking total cost of ownership and accelerated time to market in onboarding new content, feeding new business applications or meeting new regulatory requirements.  
This webcast, sponsored by Asset Control, will explore the following issues:

  • The specifics around the latest cloud-based data management products and ancillary services
  • The extent to which financial services firms are making use of cloud-based, managed data services to underpin new business initiatives and regulatory obligations
  • The value propositions, including financial benefits, time to market and reduced implementation risks that firms benefit from by adopting cloud-based managed services
  • Selection criteria firms should consider when looking to partner with managed service providers
