Asset Arena Manager facilitates straight-through processing as the front-middle office part of the Asset Arena suite, from which customers can pick and choose the elements they need to support every stage of the investment process, from portfolio construction and management, to valuation, order management, risk, pre-trade compliance, and client reporting.
Matt Samelson, principal at Woodbine Associates and author of the companyâs recently-released report on order management systems, said, âAn integrated investment management solution is absolutely desirable where possible and practical, given the complex work flow associated with benchmark tracking, order generation, execution, allocation, risk, and settlement. A single vendor, integrated solution can help manage those complexities and reduce the associated operational risk.â
âSunGardâs Asset Arena Manager was developed in close partnership with customers who are leading asset managers with complex global operations,â said Martin Boyd, president of SunGardâs asset management business. âOur customers told us they wanted a flexible solution for their investment management process that could be combined with any order management system (OMS), back office system, third party administrator or peripheral business specific application. The launch of Asset Arena Manager delivers that, with a new, improved user interface to the front and middle office that can be customized and accessed anytime, anywhere. Its use of real-time data helps reduce operational risk and enhances efficiency through better informed investment decisions.â
