Japan's Mitsubishi Trust and Banking Corporation has deployed Thomson Financial's portfolio management and analysis platform, Portia, as part of its in-house fund management system.
The bank says its fund manager support system currently handles domestic equities, global equities, global bonds and domestic bonds. The system enables fund managers to view real time positions and to run simulations.
Portia has been implemented as an integral part of the FM system. The platform automates trading and includes simulation functions for risk management.
Hiroshi Saito, director and head of investment planning, Mitsubishi Trust and Banking Corporation, says: "The key reason for selecting Portia is the robustness of its database function, the most critical factor for us. The functionality of its engines and compliance check functions were also a consideration."
