The move further strengthens Thomson Reuters continued commitment to the Middle East and illustrates the promotion Thomson Reuters PORTIA throughout the region.
Thomson Reuters PORTIA is a robust platform that supports specific regional needs including: accounting and transaction processing requirements, Shariah compliance, performance measurement, attribution and client reporting. In addition, flexible integration to third party systems is supported with the ability to report in English and Arabic to meet the demands of both clients and local regulators in the Middle East.
Christy Bremner, Global Managing Director of Thomson Reuters PORTIA, said: âWe are committed to supporting the expansion of Thomson Reuters PORTIA throughout the Middle East and our deal with Blominvest represents continuous investment in our product to meeting market requirements.â
Phillip Dagher, Chief Operating Officer at Blominvest Saudi Arabia, said: âWe chose Thomson Reuters PORTIA for its scalability, broad functionality and proven success in live environments. The open architecture and flexible system allows for a more centralized approach to transaction processing and data management, which greatly increases our efficiency."
With a focus on regional product requirements, Thomson Reuters PORTIA has made it a top priority to enhance the middle-to-back office operations of investment managers in the Middle East. Plans are in place to add more specialized accounting capabilities later this year.
Used by more than 300 investment managers in 45 countries managing assets worth more than US $15 Trillion, Thomson Reuters PORTIA is a highly scalable solution which boasts flexible deployment options.
Thomson Reuters PORTIA revolutionizes how clients approach their day-to-day operations by providing an open, flexible and high performing system that is instrumental to ensuring an ideal workflow and streamlined operation.
