Asset Control Partners with ECOFIN: Leaders in Successful Bank Implementations Join Forces
NEW YORK (ots-PRNewswire) - Investment Banks Now Offered Total Architecture and Data Model Solution To Consolidate Management of Securities Pricing and Reference Data
Asset Control International and the ECOFIN Group today announced their partnership, which will offer a major advance in implementations of centralized systems for securities pricing, reference and corporate action data. The two firms will cooperate on marketing, consulting, implementation and ongoing development of Asset Control's data management platform and ECOFIN's Financial Instruments Data Model (FIDM(TM)). Both solutions have extensive track records of successful implementations in international investment banks and exchanges, and both firms are notable for their strong relationships with satisfied customers.
"The partnership of Asset Control and ECOFIN is a match made in the marketplace," said Ger Rosenkamp, president and CEO of Asset Control. "Encouraged by both current and prospective customers to join forces, we examined each other's solutions and saw the benefits to our customers. ECOFIN has a rational, forward-looking approach to organizing securities data to support business operations. When combined with our streamlined approach to gathering and cleansing market data, consolidating it with static data, and distributing it institution-wide, the result enables investment banks to modernize their securities information infrastructure more rapidly than ever before."
The announcement was made at the SIA Technology Management Conference & Exhibit held this week in New York City, where executives from Asset Control and ECOFIN will be available at booth #4006.
"The timing of this announcement is ideal," said Dr. Martin Janssen, president and CEO of the ECOFIN Group. "Both Asset Control and ECOFIN have strong histories of success in Europe. Now we are also attracting interest from major American institutions. As they move to straight-through processing and global e-commerce, financial institutions are becoming very clear about the costs of uncoordinated data management, and the obvious paybacks of data consolidation. We are pleased to offer a modern, flexible and sensible solution that answers these concerns with immediate results and long-term advantages."
