SimCorp, a leading provider of investment management solutions and services for the global financial services industry, has released SimCorp Dimension version 5.8, the second of its two annual software releases.
The release introduces, among other items, the new IBOR Manager. With a broadening range of securities and investment strategies in play, the requirement to have a holistic and complete view of the risks and potential outcomes associated with any action has become essential. Today, having a comprehensive IBOR in place is recognized as one of the most critical parts of running a successful investment management business.
SimCorp’s IBOR Manager provides accurate, up-to-date positions, operational efficiencies and on-demand access to portfolio calculations across all asset classes. It further allows for faster on-boarding of new clients, and scaling business while controlling costs.
Other notable aspects of version 5.8:
- In the Front Office, new widgets are introduced in the Order Manager Dashboard to assist traders when dealing with orders in infrequently traded or illiquid securities by providing a view of the trading history of a specific security or group of securities
- With the Performance Manager in the Middle Office, clients can now define sponsor benchmarks independently of associated portfolio benchmarks and the RiskMetrics integration has been further enhanced for an even smoother integration
- A new Back Office module allows clients to get a real-time view of eligible collateral in the Collateral Manager Dashboard.
“The release of SimCorp Dimension version 5.8 further boosts SimCorp’s strong position as a compelling IBOR provider,” says Klaus Holse, CEO at SimCorp. “Our award winning solution provides the front office with real-time, reliable position data for the best possible management of investment portfolios.”
