Engage 2015 Coverage: Investing for Growth

Stephen Johns, Manager of EMEA Services Delivery EIS

It’s an age-old question: what comes first, growth or the capital investments that drive growth? At a panel Tuesday morning, “Growing Assets Efficiently,” four executives discussed their approach to this strategy question and highlighted that while it can be difficult to make the leap and overcome certain challenges that come with doing so, their investments to gain control of their data have indeed paid dividends across their businesses.

A survey cited during the panel seems to imply that most organizations in banking and finance still view IT and technology as merely a cost of doing business. Indeed, 67% indicated they are increasing their “lights on” IT spend, while only 20% view this as an investment geared for growth. It’s no wonder that nearly one in three do not believe their IT budget meets an expected ROI, and, among those polled, the average spend on technology came in below 7% of revenue.

We kicked off the session with a viewing of this video, which outlines the power of Eagle’s data management solution and our vision of the data management continuum and just how far that can extend for our clients.

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.

Eagle’s award-winning approach to outsourcing

Diane McLoughlin, Head of Relationship Management, Americas & Middle Office Outsourcing

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.
