Live from Engage 2015: Investment Management in 2025

By Judy Wadness

We aren’t even through the first day of Engage 2015 and some key themes have already started to emerge. This morning, author and Singularity University founder Salim Ismail provided a thorough and compelling primer on Moore’s Law and the ways in which the exponential growth of computer-processing power is driving disruptive innovation across the business landscape. This afternoon, I moderated the panel “Investment Management in 2025,” which focused more specifically on the ways in which technology will re-shape the financial services industry over the next ten years.

Engage 2015 Coverage: Quest for IBOR Leads to Scottsdale!

In February, the world was introduced to Commodore IBOR – the enterprising adventurer in search of the “Golden” Investment Book of Record. Hopefully he made it to Scottsdale this week, because our afternoon session at Engage 2015 covered not only the key drivers for establishing an IBOR, but also how an IBOR can be leveraged to extend beyond its original deliverables – ie, the ROI that adds that golden shine to investment firms’ IBOR projects.

Live from Engage 2015: Sharing the Ideas that are Shaping the Future

Mal Cullen, Chief Executive Officer, Eagle Investment Systems

Our client conference, Engage 2015, kicked off today in Scottsdale, Arizona. It’s always a special and exciting time for us – over 500 of our clients from all over the world have come together to discuss the business challenges they’re facing, share best practices and learn how our solutions can help them keep pace with the evolving markets and regulatory landscape.

This video that I shared at this morning’s General Session highlights some of Eagle’s more recent milestones and provides a glimpse of where we think our momentum can take us.  A key theme of the video, and Eagle’s success in general, is that through collaborating with our clients we can reach new heights together.  This drives everything we do at Eagle and captures why we are here at Engage for the next three days.

Spotlight on Engage – Locking in on IBOR’s Moving Target

Paul McInnis, Director of Product Strategy, Data Management, Eagle Investment Systems

The concept of an Investment Book of Record, or an IBOR, has been around for years, as Eagle has been offering IBOR solutions as part of our Data Management platform for over a decade now. More recently, however, we have witnessed a renewed buzz around the concept, which has created some unwanted side effects. While this added attention has motivated investment firms to explore how an IBOR might apply to their business, the very definition of what an IBOR is has become convoluted. Ironically, this industry buzz has led to more confusion and less understanding around the acute business needs that demand an IBOR solution.

2014: In Review

John Lehner, President and CEO Eagle Investment Systems

indexHockey great Wayne Gretzky was once quoted as saying, “A good hockey player plays where the puck is. A great hockey player plays where the puck is going to be.” If there was a budding trend that we saw in 2014, it’s that investment firms are increasingly taking the “Wayne Gretzky” approach to their technology. They see where the world is going; understand that their legacy systems will be hard-pressed to keep up; and they’re seeking out an answer, not for next year, but rather a solution that can grow and evolve in lockstep with their business and the industry over time. Effectively, they want to play where the puck will be ten years out and longer, which, for many, has led them to the agility and scalability offered through Eagle’s data-centric model.

Do It Yourself or Get It Done For You? Either Way It Is Good to Have Options.

Amir Dehestani, Global Sales Solutions Manager, BNY Mellon Program Services, Eagle Investment Systems

I have always prided myself with having a “do it yourself” (DIY) attitude. Increasingly however, I find myself embracing the “done for you” (DFY) way of thinking. Case in point: five years ago I purchased paint supplies from the local hardware store with the intention of painting a bedroom in my home. The years passed and the cans of paint sat there unopened serving as a constant reminder of how short-lived my DIY attitude was for this project. Sure, there were feeble attempts over the years when I would take the paint back to the store to get re-stirred in hopes of finally seeing this project through, just to return home and put them right back in the basement. Finally, after five years, I caved in and hired someone to perform the now daunting task. Read More…
