UK asset manager Prudential has implemented the Charles River Investment Management System (IMS) at nine Asia-Pacific offices. This will allow the firm to consolidate its fund management operations onto one platform.
Users in Prudential’s China, Hong Kong, India, Korea, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Vietnam offices will be able to take advantage of automated portfolio management, trading and compliance monitoring of the firm’s Asian fixed interest, swaps, and structured products portfolios.
“The flexibility of Charles River’s IMS allows clients to configure the system for local markets and multiple countries, currencies and asset classes,” said Cameron Field, managing director, Asia-Pacific, Charles River Development in a statement. “Portfolio managers, traders and compliance staff can automatically and effectively manage and execute their funds – spending less time managing multiple systems and processes.”
