the investment management industry today announced the US launch of
HiPortfolio/3, DSTi's follow-on of it's best-selling back office solution.
Over 20,000 man-days of development (representing an investment of $15
million) have resulted in more open data access, an even more robust and
scalable database and a graphical user interface. HiPortfolio has been the
market leader in Europe and Australia for over 10 years with over 350
users. It maintained its position by bringing users the increasingly
sophisticated functionality they need. Now DSTi has added its Schedule D
reporting module plus hundreds of individual enhancements and is now
beginning to market HiPortfolio/3 actively in the US.
With over 200 of its staff involved in bringing HiPortfolio/3 to the US,
DSTi is now launching this fully integrated front to back office product as
a top tier tool for investment management organizations, offering both
license versions and fully hosted ASP versions out of the DST Kansas City
data center, one of the largest and most secure data centers in the US.
DSTi is committed to remaining the best by "future-proofing" client
investments in technology and ensuring clients return. Its clients know
that they can rely on DSTi for customer support and continued product
development products for many years to come.
Marcus Ansell, DSTi's North American president said, "HiPortfolio/3 brings
a mature, well supported and functionally complete offering into the US,
continuing our long successful sales history around the globe."
HiPortfolio/3 supports unlimited rollups and exposures across multiple
companies and allows for the exposure, risk and performance measurement
across the enterprise that other products just are not capable of, but are
so critical in this increasingly volatile era of multi-company and
international holdings and compliance.
Mr. Ansell continued: "With our ASP offering, DST International can
integrate the product, market data feeds, market data scrubbing, internal
message hubs for STP throughput, and virtually unlimited scalability
without capital outlay and business continuity at tiered monthly plans
rather than up-front licenses fees." Mr Ansell added, "HiPortfolio/3 is
scalable and modular so smaller companies can start out with smaller fees
and the product grows with them. "
Regional launches of HiPortfolio/3 will continue across DSTi's global
offices in the coming months.
