WestLB Goes Live with Asset Control’s AC Plus to Extend Instrument Coverage

German headquartered bank WestLB has gone live with Asset Control’s AC Plus financial and reference data management software to support its back office operations and day to day user requirements across its businesses worldwide.

The solution also provides WestLB with the ability to quickly add data feeds to its static data stream, adds the vendor.
