Link Fund Solutions selects Infovest for best of breed fund compliance capabilities

By | News | No Comments

Management company specialist Link Funds Solutions in Dublin has selected Infovest’s StatPro Portfolio Control (SPC) product to provide advanced new breach management and compliance capabilities.

Infovest’s SPC solution delivers automated workflow and reporting, offering full support of regulatory investment and borrowing restrictions and enabling advanced breach identification, management, audit and reporting functionality.

SPC, which went live in the Dublin office this month, will give Link Fund Solutions the ability to move substantially faster on potential exceptions and breaches, enhancing compliance and service delivery.

The product allows Link Fund Solutions to monitor compliance of its funds under management with the investment and borrowing restrictions set out in the regulations (UCITS and AIFMD) in accordance with CP86 (Management Company) guidelines. Execution monitoring and reporting will be enhanced, providing deep insight into funds and ensuring all aspects of the funds are professionally managed.

Link Fund Solutions is Infovest’s first client in Ireland, and has previously implemented other StatPro solutions, including the Revolution monitoring tool. Following the implementation in Dublin, Link Fund Solutions will also roll out SPC at its UK and Luxembourg business.

Paul Nunan, MD of Link Fund Solutions Ireland comments:

“The choice of SPC is in line with our wider growth strategy, ensuring existing and prospective clients, their investors, and the regulator have the confidence that we’re actively managing their funds in accordance with regulations. Our broader innovation and development strategy includes the creation of a data warehouse, and this comprehensive fund data will feed various utilities such as SPC and StatPro Revolution.

“StatPro was already a trusted partner providing us with a robust and flexible Investment Performance and Risk monitoring tool in the form of the StatPro Revolution product. Infovest, forming part of the same group, gave us the confidence that they fully understand our business and could deliver on our requirements. SPC’s independence offers a ‘best of breed’ compliance solution, a testimony to our ambition to exceed the expectations of our clients.”

Jenine Ellappen, Compliance Product Manager at Infovest Consulting, says the ability to thoroughly interrogate data, monitor and investigate in house breaches without having to be reliant on third parties, gives Link Fund Solutions visibility, ownership and control over their data, rules and compliance.

“For many asset management companies, turnaround time is generally quite long, with reports on compliance exceptions and breaches received only weekly or monthly. Having this information daily allows Link to action it in a timely manner, thereby potentially reducing any negative financial impacts. This capability is a differentiator that will support the company’s international growth strategy,”

StatPro and Infovest step up SA presence

By | News | No Comments

StatPro optimistic about SA’s long-term prospects

StatPro Group PLC (“StatPro”, “the Group”, AIM: SOG), the AIM listed provider of cloud-based portfolio analytics and asset pricing services for the global asset management industry is stepping up its South African presence, despite prevailing market concerns and downscaling by some international businesses operating in the country.

UK-headquartered StatPro and its wholly owned subsidiary, Infovest Consulting (Pty) Ltd, are set to move to larger, shared premises early next year as the company gears up to meet growing local demand for their advanced data and financial services solutions.

Craig Arenhold, CEO of both StatPro South Africa and Infovest, says the two companies will retain their individual identities, but will collectively offer clients a deeper level of support and service.

“The acquisition of Infovest, which was concluded early this year, aligns what is in effect a data management and compliance business – Infovest – with StatPro’s portfolio performance, attribution and risk solution. The strength of our proposition is that we are able to offer clients data rationalisation and an efficient data model. Essentially, we can help financial services organisations to do business better,” he says.

Arenhold says StatPro is seeing strong growth in interest in its new cloud-based portfolio analysis software, Revolution, which is expected to further support the company’s growth in South Africa. In addition to the two companies’ advanced solutions, they are winning the support of local financial services firms through their support levels and the fact that they price contracts in Rand.

StatPro and Infovest together now have a combined team topping 70 specialist resources, and there is room for further growth at the new 1 100m2 shared premises at Riverpark in Mowbray, Cape Town.

While many foreign investors may be cautious about South Africa’s growth prospects at this stage, Arenhold believes South Africa could be set for growth in the medium term: “We’re cautiously optimistic. South Africa already has increasing levels of transparency in terms of the economy and the management of fraud and corruption, so it may take a bit of time, but we believe things will get better.”

“We have many long-dated contracts in place with our loyal customers, and we are illustrating our commitment to them and our faith in the local economy by investing in growth,” Arenhold says.

Q3 trading update

By | News | No Comments

StatPro Group PLC

StatPro Group plc, (“StatPro”, “the Group”, AIM: SOG), the cloud-based portfolio analysis and asset
pricing services provider for the global asset management industry, provides a trading update for the
nine months ended 30 September 2018.

Revenue and profits continue to be in line with expectations for the current year.
In the 12 months to 30 September 2018, Group Annualised Recurring Revenue (“ARR”), increased by
3% to £54.8 million (September 2017: £53.1 million at constant currency), including the risk service of
ODDO BHF, which was acquired on 1 July 2018. Underlying ARR growth for StatPro Revolution
(excluding impact of acquired revenue and including conversions from StatPro Seven) was 16%.

The transition of the managed risk service of ODDO BHF to the Revolution platform is progressing
according to plan with a target date of 31 December 2018. Once migrated, the duplicate cost of thirdparty
software and data costs will be removed providing additional contribution to adjusted EBITDA.

The Group’s continued focus on fund administrators has resulted in a steady increase quarter on quarter
of new revenue from current fund administrator partners. As previously stated, the Board considers
that the market as a whole is trending towards outsourcing and StatPro is uniquely positioned to benefit
from this development due to its technology.

The migration of Delta is also progressing well. Delta clients will soon be able to add Revolution
functionality without needing to change any of their input or output files, reports or their GUI (Graphical
User Interface). Delta will be added to Revolution, which greatly expands the functionality for both
Delta and Revolution clients.

The recently announced contract win with a large South African financial institution is encouraging and
reflects the quality of the Infovest division. The Group expects the division to make steady progress
and provide a positive contribution to profits of the Group.

Justin Wheatley, Chief Executive, commented:
“Our flagship platform, Revolution continues to cement its position as the leading fintech
solution for performance and risk, with a special focus on the asset servicing sector. With
the addition of the risk service from ODDO BHF, we are well placed to augment our
capabilities in this area, especially in regards to fund administrators.

“The increase in functionality for Delta and the updated roadmap for its integration with
Revolution is a key milestone and importantly, it removes a decision point for clients of
Delta – they have warmly welcomed this development.

“As Revolution matures we continue to expect to see investment plateauing and an
increase in our margins.”

Large South African financial institution signs contract for ZAR 19.5 million (£1.0 million)

By | News | No Comments

StatPro Group PLC (“StatPro”, “the Group”, AIM: SOG), the AIM listed provider of cloud-based portfolio analytics and asset pricing services for the global asset management industry, has secured a five-year contract with a large South African financial institution for its Infovest service, worth approximately £1.0 million.

It will use Infostore to provide a consolidated view of all its positions in the market on a daily basis. In addition, the solution will enable business intelligence and analytics.

Justin Wheatley, Group CEO, commented:

“This contract win is confirmation of the excellent quality of our Infovest data management solution. Infovest’s vast experience in providing data management solutions in the financial sector, along with its strong focus on data governance and excellent implementation track record, were significant factors in the awarding of the contract.

Atlantic Fund Services takes charge of post trade compliance with Infovest product

By | News | No Comments

U.S.-based third-party administrator Atlantic Fund Services has gained control and visibility over post trade compliance, thanks to Infovest’s Statistical Compliance Product (SPC) supported out of South Africa.

Atlantic Fund Services, which provides comprehensive fund servicing solutions for mutual funds, series trusts, closed-end funds, private funds and bank funds, called for a demonstration of SPC’s capabilities two years ago, when they encountered challenges in understanding the compliance rules logic in their existing global vendor’s solution.

Infovest were happy to take up the challenge and look to build on their foreign client base which already includes clients in UK, Ireland, Sweden, USA and Canada.

“What was supposed to be a brief demo at Atlantic’s offices in Portland, Maine, turned into a full-day workshop. The more the Atlantic team saw, the more they liked,” says SPC Product Manager Jenine Ellappen.

Atlantic had been challenged in managing its old solution– the team found the solution highly technical and its rules logic cumbersome. Seeking a simpler, more effective product, they went ahead with a SPC proof of concept and immediately saw benefits. The product, featuring compliance monitoring, data management, breach management, enquiries and reporting, went live in September 2017.

“As soon as we made the decision to license SPC, Infovest was very organised and ready to start planning the implementation,” says Dennis Mason, Atlantic Fund Services Fund Compliance Officer. “The Infovest product is paying off. SPC provides us transparency into the data loading process making us aware of problems almost immediately. The system provides automated internal reports, allowing our team to research breaches earlier and more effectively. We can review trades in SPC to help us determine the cause of breaches as well as easily view the attributes of the portfolio holdings. The session analysis enquiry is key to efficiently managing breaches because we can focus on new breaches and quickly assess older breaches to determine whether there are any changes than need further review. The team spends less time trying to figure out why a rule has been breached because the rule building process is simple and easy to understand,” he says.

Mason adds that the Infovest team is knowledgeable about SPC processes and functionality as well as portfolio compliance monitoring in general. “The Infovest team provided many creative rule writing solutions and never turned down a challenge.”

After receiving training, the team at Atlantic became super users.” says Infovest Compliance Consultant Jason Prudhomme. “They code their own rules and make changes where required.”

With compliance and control their key priorities, Atlantic Fund Services also gained a simplified understanding of the rules and related data, new levels of efficiency with automated reporting and batch reports, and a platform that freed up resources to offer clients better service.

Curo gets competitive edge with Infovest IDM

By | News | No Comments

South African investment administration services provider Curo has implemented Infovest’s Investment Data Management solution to automate reporting and alerting, support data governance and enhance customer service.

With Infovest Investment Data Management (IDM) and Infovest Reporter enterprise client reporting solutions in place, Curo now benefits from advanced and streamlined reporting.

Infovest’s IDM solution delivers consistently clean data in a centralised data source and allows users to isolate system dependencies and consolidate data across departments. It has the ability to query, control and enrich static and reference data. Infovest Reporter, a key component to the solution, simplifies report production thereby delivering intelligent management around report structures and content. Further, it ensures accountability through clear workflow and an automatic audit trail.

“The new solutions also meet our requirement for self-sufficient and agile reporting, at a competitive price point. Our partnership offers our clients an efficient addition to our service offering,” says Curo Fund Services Product Development Executive Darren Botha.

With a 3-year licence term, the first phase of the Infovest solution was implemented in December 2017 to coincide with the decommissioning of Curo’s previous system. The implementation overcomes limitations in the way of Curo’s growth strategy; allowing the organisation to modify and expand its reporting capacity and respond faster to industry changes. This is in line with Curo’s focus on specialised fund administration expertise and market-leading flexibility.

Infovest CEO Craig Arenhold says: “We are delighted to be embarking on this partnership with Curo. It is worth noting that implementation has allowed for increased efficiency in reporting facilitating an enhanced client experience, which we are very pleased with. We look forward to a long and mutually rewarding association.”

Investment firm gets simplified fund data visibility with Infovest solutions

By | News | No Comments

Cape Town, South Africa – March 2018:  An independent owner-operated investment firm has gained full oversight of its data, with Infovest’s Investment Data Management solution.

The investment firm, dedicated exclusively to fund management and managing R100bn across a range of equity, multi-asset and fixed income portfolios, elected to outsource its fund administration. To add oversight and additional governance and control over its investment data, the investment firm selected Infostore as their Investment Data Management repository and reporting platform.

The initial implementation, concluded in a rapid six-week roll-out, focussed on the integration of ASISA standard reporting format data files from the investment firm’s fund administrator. They went live with Infostore in February 2018 and immediately benefited from additional access, control and visibility of their fund accounting data.

“While the central administrator did offer control and visibility, the investment firm sought an additional layer of reporting assurance and flexibility. Infostor supports their data governance protocols and provides a foundation for future phases to incorporate additional information and to provide them with additional data visibility across a consolidated, multi-source data set,” says Infovest Consulting CEO Craig Arenhold.
