Credence Analytics launches Credence iDEAL for PMS/Private Banking

Mumbai, India

February 10, 2006

Investments for individuals, though commonly assumed to be fairly simple, in reality requires expert advice, focused attention and a thorough understanding of financial markets. With the Indian capital markets scaling new heights there is a lot of interest by retail investors who would like a piece of the action and benefit from the returns. This has created a large opportunity for specialised service-providers to offer personalised and tailor-made investment management solutions. Many players are now offering wealth management and PMS services in an attempt to win over some of these individuals as clients.

With the increased number of players, each investments service-provider has to differentiate themselves from competition by offering:

high quality investment advice ensuring superior returns
Customised investment solutions e.g. creation of hybrid portfolios to fulfill specific customer needs.
personalised and timely service

But the lack of a comprehensive, scalable software solution could become a bottle-neck for any service-provider who is scaling up operations to meet growing business demand.

Credence Analytics, a market leader in investments, treasury and risk management software solutions for the banking and financial services segment has understood the need for a comprehensive, scalable and flexible business solution to address the complete business requirements of such investments service-providers.

With the domain expertise & knowledge of the capital markets and experience of implementing investment and treasury management solutions at over 50 client sites, Credence Analytics has developed a complete business solution for PMS service providers offering discretionary / non- discretionary and advisory services for its clients.

Credence Analytics is proud to introduce 'Credence iDEAL – PMS' which is miles ahead of any existing PMS solution in the market. Credence iDEAL-PMS was developed based on expert inputs from many market players and on the findings from a study of the gaps in the current solutions in the market.
