EMEA investment managers experience improved connectivity

Date: 29 Mar 2012


Advent, provider of software and services for the global investment management industry, has announced its improved connectivity in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). Advent has made significant additions to its existing 450+ US and global custodian interfaces, specifically bolstering connectivity with European custodians, and has launched a market data integration framework to automate the delivery of custodial and market data from a variety of providers into Advent Portfolio Exchange (APX), Advent’s portfolio management system.

Advent custodial data integration for EMEA:

Getting custodial data into a firm’s portfolio management system can be a complex process, entailing a myriad of manual and semi-automated steps to manage and manipulate custodial data to meet the requirements of the custodian’s business and software. Through Advent’s custodial connectivity solution, interfaces can be locally installed to allow custodians to send standard files to clients for instant, useable information within APX. The ability to employ straight through processing with Advent’s solution improves data quality, reduces operational risk, and impacts investment firms’ profitability, scalability and growth. It also frees custodians in EMEA to focus on managing primary business goals and offering superior client service, as the interface automates data management and facilitates streamlined access for Advent clients throughout the region.

Advent’s market data solutions:

With Advent’s market data solutions, clients can choose their market data source while streamlining the market data management process, thereby saving time and money. The framework automates the workflow of importing market data – including prices, rates and indices – from leading vendors like Thomson Reuters, Interactive Data and Bloomberg into APX. As a result, EMEA investment managers can collect, analyse, consolidate and distribute the data they need, when they need it.
