BlueBay Asset Management Goes Live with Vermilion KIID Solution

Subscribe to our newsletter

BlueBay Asset Management Ltd (‘BlueBay’), a market leading asset management company, went live with Vermilion Software’s outsourced Key Investor Information Document (‘KIID’) reporting service, VRS KIID, in July 2011. This followed an extensive selection process, including the review of the other KIID reporting offerings in the market place. BlueBay selected Vermilion in April of this year.

VRS KIID utilises the award-winning Vermilion Reporting Suite (VRS) to automate the production of Key Investor Information Documents within Vermilion’s secure cloud service, on an annual, ad-hoc or event driven basis. VRS KIID loads weekly performance data to calculate the Synthetic Risk and Reward Indicator (‘SRRI’) automatically. The powerful Workflow within VRS manages the whole process in a bespoke fashion to fit BlueBay’s specific requirements. The solution ensures that all data, text narratives, SRRIs and translations obtain the correct governance sign-off prior to report production, and distributes the outputs to BlueBay’s target destinations automatically.

VRS KIID continually manages and monitors performance and SRRIs during the year, delivering monthly internal reports to BlueBay. The solution recognises SRRI values that have changed throughout any sixteen week cycle, and automatically re-runs the KIIDs that are affected.

Alexandra Cavaliere, Project Lead of the KIID implementation at BlueBay: “With the vast number of KIIDs we need to produce and maintain in various languages, we are pleased to have outsourced this task to Vermilion. BlueBay is one of the first asset management companies going live with the KIID and despite the related challenges, Vermilion and its VRS KIID system presented themselves as highly versatile and effective.”

Simon Cornwell, Sales & Marketing Director at Vermilion: “When taking into consideration the variety of vendors currently focusing on UCITS IV, Vermilion are delighted that BlueBay realised the potential of VRS KIID and selected the solution. A significant benefit of VRS KIID is that we can replicate the service quickly and efficiently to other clients. Vermilion has integrated the offering with a global translation partner, enabling the ability to automatically deliver KIID reports in any language. This approach substantially reduces the cost of translating KIIDs, thanks to the Translation Memory software.”
