WTGBSTAW14-OA-eagle-403x292pxI’m happy to share that Eagle recently won its first award for its outsourcing offering – “Best Outsourcing Provider to the Buy-Side” as part of the prestigious Waters Technology’s Buy-Side Technology Awards 2014.

We were singled out for the quality of our ability to provide the global investment management industry with a comprehensive technology offering, spanning everything from best-in-class products to hosted services, to a robust outsourcing solution through our relationship with BNY Mellon.

This award really highlights the strength and flexibility of our solutions across the continuum. Our aim at Eagle is to help the world grow assets efficiently by providing investment firms with the best technology across data management, accounting and performance, deployed flexibly to best meet their strategic and tactical requirements. This ranges from onsite installations (although this is becoming far less common) right through to fully outsourced services that removes from our clients the burden of managing their own systems to allow them to focus instead on running their portfolios.
