BI-SAM Names Anthony Howland COO of its UK Branch

BI-SAM, a provider of performance attribution and reporting software solutions for the global asset management industry, today announced that, in response to its growing number of clients, its UK team has been reorganised around Anthony Howland, its new COO.

Opened in 2006, BI-SAM Ltd was the first subsidiary of the BI-SAM Group and is unsurprisingly a very important one. The UK Asset Management market is one of the most important ones in Europe and BI-SAM has acquired no less than 10 new clients in the last two years. The group strongly believes in client servicing and satisfaction, and this success in the UK market is a reflection of the global firm’s strategy.

This significant development of BI-SAM led to the reinforcement of the UK team during the last months, growing from 5 to 12 persons, mainly in the Professional Services department. Anthony Howland, who joined BI-SAM a few months ago as strategic advisor, brought his experience and knowledge of the market to the group. His nomination comes at a strategic time for the group’s UK subsidiary and will increase its autonomy. He will be chairing the UK Operations and Management team, the branch being the central point of the firm’s development in Northern Europe.

“I am particularly happy to take a more active part in the development of BI-SAM in the UK”, commented Anthony, “These last months, I have seen that not only is B-One the global leading performance and reporting product but also that the attention showed by the teams to client satisfaction is an incredible added value recognised by the market.”

“I am extremely pleased that Anthony is chairing our UK operations. He is an excellent professional with an impressive track record on operations management, client relationship and performance, reporting and GIPS areas. Giving more autonomy to BI-SAM’s UK branch is a real challenge!” said Alexandre Harkous, CEO of BI-SAM, “Anthony will be developing our leading position in the UK market, supported by an ambitious resources plan.”
