SimCorp StrategyLab, a private research institution headed by Ingo Walter, Professor at the Stern School of Business, New York University, today announced the call for entries for the 2012 SimCorp StrategyLab Excellence Awards.
The SimCorp StrategyLab Excellence Awards recognize innovation and outstanding performance across the global investment management industry. “The awards are a great way to showcase buy-side firms which are driving success for their organisations and beating the odds of a troubled industry,” notes Walter.
The three award categories include achievements and best practices in: risk management, cost control and growth and value creation. “Investment management firms that can demonstrate how technology is an enabler that drives alpha and improves client service will stand out as exemplary to investors whose confidence has been shaken since the 2008 crisis,” continues Walter.
An international panel consisting of renowned experts in finance, economics and applied IT will evaluate the submissions. Winners will be announced on 20 September 2012, at a ceremony in Geneva, Switzerland, where they will be recognised in front of more than 300 of their global industry peers. Recipients of the 2012 awards will have the opportunity to present their strategic and innovative use of technology.
Previous award recipients include outstanding investment management firms such as: Dealis Fund Operations, MEAG, Nordea Savings and Asset Management as well as Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management.
Submission deadline is 31 August 2012.
