BI-SAM, a leading provider of data management, performance, attribution, risk, GIPS composites and reporting solutions for the global asset management industry, today announced the release of B-One 3.5, the latest version of its award-winning platform.
B-One 3.5 is the most significant release to date of BI-SAM’s market leading platform. During the development of B-One 3.5, BI-SAM’s product experts worked with the main players in the asset management industry to ensure that the B-One platform would remain at the leading edge of the market’s requirements. B-One 3.5 delivers a superior user experience that will improve the productivity of performance teams by putting the user at the heart of a series of major functional enhancements. Substantial improvements have been made to the ergonomics of the user interface for running performance measurement and attribution calculations. B-One 3.5 also includes a major upgrade to the functionality for composite management and GIPS compliance.
B-One 3.5 includes important new functionality for fixed income attribution: carry and pay-down effects, term structure effects for linker funds, and user-defined effect assignments. These enhancements will allow performance analysts to deliver more accurate attribution results over a wider range of asset classes. They will also provide performance teams with the flexibility to align attribution analyses with specific fixed income investment management processes.
The GIPS composites module has been redesigned to simply the composite management process and increase the productivity of performance teams in this key area. B-One 3.5 contains improvements in workflow management, composite checks, audit trails, and reporting.
“As part of our product strategy, we are pleased to provide asset managers with features that will help them to increase the strategic value in their operating platforms through productivity gains and enhanced scalability. We are totally committed to a long-term programme of investment in the B-One platform. For this reason, when designing our product roadmap, we always take into account key industry trends and drivers for change. This is the only way to ensure that our B-One platform continues to address the most serious challenges faced by our clients” commented Philippe Affannato, Product Management Director at BI-SAM.
