NEW YORK--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--SimCorp, a leading provider of investment management solutions and services for the global financial services industry, will participate in a panel discussion titled “The Investment Book of Record – What’s in Your IBOR?” at the Buy-Side Technology North American Summit 2013. SimCorp will also be exhibiting at the conference and can be found at Booth 11.
“The Investment Book of Record – What’s in Your IBOR?”
David Kubersky, President and Managing Director for SimCorp North America, will appear alongside other industry experts to discuss the business benefits an investment book of record can deliver to buy-side firms. Panelists include Tim Misik, Portfolio Manager, CalPERS and Michael Crean, Vice President, ING Investment Management. The panel will be moderated by Barry Chester, Principal Consultant, Barry Chester & Company, LLC.
Questions that the panel will address include:
- Who are the stakeholders for the investment book of record, and how do they differ from those for the accounting book of record?
- Is it possible and advisable for portfolio management decision systems to rely on the same position-keeping system as accounting?
- What drives the need for an IBOR that is physically distinct from the ABOR(s)? What kinds of buy-side firms benefit most from a separate IBOR? Does everybody need one?
- How have buy-side firms and vendors chosen to implement an IBOR?
According to Kubersky, “Realizing the necessity of having a single source of truth, buy-side firms are increasingly adopting IBORs and experiencing the benefits such an approach delivers to stakeholders across the front-, middle- and back-office. The IBOR capabilities of SimCorp Dimension have been an agent of change at asset managers worldwide. With ever more interest from leading firms globally in implementing such an approach, this conversation promises to be a lively one and we look forward to taking part.”
The Buy-Side Technology North American Summit 2013 will take place at the New York Marriott Marquis on Thursday, October 10, 2013.
