BI-SAM today announced that Nomura Asset Management U.K. has selected its B-One platform for performance, attribution and risk measurement, for its U.K. operations. The U.K. implementation is seen as a potential step towards future global deployment.
With seven offices world-wide, Nomura Asset Management is a leading global asset manager. The company’s U.K. office provides a client-centric investment service and now seeks to enrich its fixed income and equity reporting and analysis as part of the drive to improved investment monitoring and client reporting.
To this end, Nomura Asset Management selected BI-SAM’s B-One platform over other systems as the best match to their requirements. The B-One platform will be performing equity and fixed income analysis and attribution, as well as producing internal performance reporting. In addition, using its current ex-ante risk module and already developed AMPERE methodology, BI-SAM has set up a partnership with Nomura Asset Management aiming to extend and develop a multi-factor ex-ante risk model with a target delivery date in 2012.
“After a detailed review of all the solutions, we concluded that BI-SAM and its B-One solution were the right choice for performance and attribution as well as for developing and implementing the model we need for fixed income ex-ante risk” said Paul Aspland, Managing Director and Head of IT at Nomura Asset Management U.K. “The last few years have established BI-SAM as a market leader; the advanced functionalities they offer associated to their support services convinced us that they are the best solution for Nomura Asset Management.”
“Nomura Asset Management is one of the world’s first class asset managers and we are very proud they gave us the opportunity to work with them”, commented Anthony Howland, COO of BI-SAM Ltd, “Client satisfaction is essential to us and is at the heart of our product and services; this new project clearly demonstrates the market’s trust in B-One and BI-SAM!”
