The panel

  • Hans Otto Engkilde, Senior Vice-President, SimCorp
  • Vijay KasarabadaCTO and Global Head of Technology, Lazard Asset Management
  • Moderator: Victor Anderson, Global Content Director, WatersTechnology

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 This has left many firms hamstrung and reliant on outdated legacy platforms and technologies.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 these technologies and implement a single, front-to-back-office platform featuring the flexibility and scalability to support growth and future needs. But those projects can be complex, costly and time-consuming, even for the smallest asset managers. 

This webinar focuses on the business and operational benefits of implementing a single investment management platform, exploring how buy-side firms can make the business case for embarking on such an initiative.


Key topics discussed:

  • Business and operational challenges facing buy-side firms that have become reliant on outdated technology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
  • Key business, operational and technology issues buy-side firms must 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  • The benefits buy-side firms stand to gain by replacing outdated technology and the specific business processes that will be positively impacted by such a move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.
