Asset Control’s AC Invest Introduces Financial Institutions to a New Role-Based Data Management Paradigm

Asset Control, the world-wide leader in financial data management solutions, is launching AC Invest, a new web-based data management platform that enables financial institutions to quickly and cost-effectively address their increasingly complex data management requirements. AC Invests’ powerful logic engine combined with its intuitive interface give users control of all stages of the data management process, creating a complete data compliance system.

AC Invest creates a new paradigm that allows clients to adopt a role- and consumption-based data management approach suited to their business operations. AC Invest enables business users to easily create, manage, retrieve, use and re-use rules that control their data quality and use. AC Invest provides firms with the solid upgrade path they expect from a vendor product. AC Invest includes:

  • A role- and consumption-based view of data that facilitates distribution, usage analysis and costing at a firm’s business unit or regional level
  • A graphically driven, centralized logic system providing increased control and audit for decision making, allowing non-technical users to easily create, manage, retrieve, use and re-use rules
  • Industry standard rules and the flexibility to easily add organizationally specific rules without the need for technical intervention
  • A “Rule Finder” to support rapid impact analysis, faster responses to regulatory queries and reduced time to on-board new business
  • A comprehensive, flexible data model that can be easily expanded using simple wizards, making upgrades simple, controlled and auditable
  • A web-based design that allows remote management, provides support for stringent security requirements and delivers a familiar user experience
  • The option of using Asset Control’s highly knowledgeable and experienced staff to manage and maintain key market data feed handlers
  • Phil Lynch, Asset Control’s president and chief executive officer, said, “AC Invest is a revolutionary new product designed to equip business users with the confidence that their core applications are powered with consistent, accurate and compliant information. This consumption-based, business-user model helps firms leverage data as the proactive business tool much needed in today’s global financial landscape. Our latest offering provides firms with low cost of ownership through a standard data model and set of rules that can be flexed without damaging their upgrade path, delivering a functionally rich standard product that can be extended with minimum additional cost.”

    AC Invest can be used as a stand-alone platform, or as part of a “federated” model for distributing data on a regional or enterprise basis (including global offices with regional variations) through integration with Asset Control’s AC Plus centralized data management platform.
