Kiltearn Partners Implements Indata IPM Epic to Centralise Data Management

Edinburgh based investment firm Kiltearn Partners has implemented Indata’s iPM Epic platform to centralise data, deliver data management efficiencies and support business intelligence.

The firm was founded in 2011 and has been using Indata’s Intelligent Portfolio Management (iPM) technology since 2013 to support front-to-back office needs including order management, compliance, portfolio modelling, accounting, performance and reporting. Substantial growth from less than $1 billion to over $7 billion of assets under management in the past few years led the firm to re-evaluate its investment systems and select Indata’s iPM Epic software as an enterprise data management platform. iPM Epic includes big data technology tools and integrates with iPM to centralise data across the firm.

Stuart Gunderson, chief operating officer at Kiltearn Partners, says: “The strength of Indata’s iPM Epic system is that it allows us to extend our capabilities to be able to capture and work with data in ways that are beneficial to our operations and marketing efforts. Operationally, we are now better equipped to streamline our outside data feeds through Epic. Epic also provides tools to centralise data. This creates many efficiencies and eliminates the inefficient and labour intensive process of trying to extract data from different systems and bring it together for analytical or business intelligence purposes.”

Avoiding sometimes lengthy implementation processes associated with stand alone enterprise data management systems, Kiltearn Partners installed and deployed the iPM Epic solution in about a month.
