Nomura Asset Management (NAM) in London has recently signed with Blue Curve to implement the latest version of their Buy-side Investment Research solution. The new version, 4.6, will improve the functionality of NAMâs Investment Research operation through a fully componentised financial database, and Blue Curveâs market-leading template and document production and distribution tools.
Once fully implemented, the system will allow NAMâs team of in-house Analysts to combine financial models in Microsoft Excel with data feeds from both internal and third party systems to produce regular and ad hoc Research. The solution features advanced productivity tools to streamline the production of reports and aggregation of forecasts across different asset classes. In addition, a full distribution engine will automatically populate internal browser pages with information for enquiry and review by NAMâs fund managers.
"Weâre looking forward to strengthening our strategic relationship with NAM through this implementation." said Mark Robertson, CEO and Founder of Blue Curve. "NAM is one of the new breed of Buy-side firms specialising in the production of in-house research to support their investment processes, and weâre delighted they have entrusted us with the development and support of this key aspect of their business."
"High quality in-house Research is a fundamental part of our investment process," said Mark Rogers, Head of Research at NAM. "The functionality offered by the new version of Blue Curveâs solution will enable us to further enhance our product, and provide an improved service to our clients."
