QED Financial Systems and CEB TowerGroup Analyst To Host Webinar Featuring Sterling Trustees

17 November 2014

QED Financial Systems, Inc., an innovator and leading provider of investment management solutions for the capital market enterprise, today announced a webinar with CEB TowerGroup analyst Gert Raeves, featuring Sterling Trustees, a world-class trust administration and management services provider.

“Zero Infrastructure: Are Managers Ready to Make the Leap?” will focus on the drivers of value and risk for institutional asset managers considering migrating to a managed services solution to support operations. It will be led by CEB TowerGroup research director Gert Reaves, who covers strategic issues facing buy-side and sell-side firms. It will feature Antony Joffe, President of Sterling Trustees, who will discuss the benefits achieved and best practices applied by his firm in outsourcing operations to QED. Kim Hoover, Chief Strategy Officer for QED, will also participate.

“For the past three years, there has been a simple and consistent theme to our survey of asset manager's IT investment plans: above all, let's reduce the amount of time and money we spend on managing our IT assets. With overall IT investment flat, firms still need to improve their ability to support traders, quants, and portfolio managers with better analytics and decision support tools, run an efficient back office, and get better at communicating with customers,” said CEB TowerGroup research director Gert Raeves. “Changing the way we consume IT services is one obvious way to create the budget and resource bandwidth to support growth objectives. Because of these advantages, six in ten surveyed financial institutions expect to increase investment in cloud-based technologies.”

Joffe of Sterling Trustees said, “Outsourcing our operations to the right partner has made a significant impact on our business. We have been able to leverage an extensive, experienced staff and the latest technology to deliver the highest levels of service to our clients while managing costs. We look forward to sharing our applications and achievements around this growing industry trend with our professional peers.”
