Front Office Advantage for Asset Management companies requires investment data integrity, timeliness and enrichment. To fuel further growth and competitiveness, asset managers increasingly target and acquire select businesses that expand their investment expertise and capabilities as well as global reach.
This adds complexity to investment data management and data integration, as each business has its own business model and investment infrastructure and may require differing regulatory and financial reporting requirements.
The integration of mergers and acquisitions into the global infrastructure of a firm creates complex and painful operational change. The IKINDI KTierTM resolves the critical data pain points of operational change.

Every business strives to provide greater value to its clients and stakeholders by continuously working to reduce operational overhead, leverage its strengths, and enhance its product/service offering. In the Asset Management business this has led to an increasing use of strategic alliances and partnerships, and to key acquisitions and divestitures – all of which cause transformational operational change within the firm.
Transformational change is extremely painful as it needs to happen in parallel with a very busy and already complex day-to-day environment. Frequently businesses under-estimate the workload involved in making this change happen – focusing more on the systems costs or the future savings expected. As the project advances the data management and business flow issues start to raise their ugly head, invariably causing cost and time overruns – sometimes measured in years with the enormous cost this can bring.

As businesses grow and change, and as systems solutions become more specialized and scalable within their specialty area, Asset Management companies are increasingly integrating best-of-breed niche systems solutions into their infrastructure platform rather than trying to build specialized systems functionality in-house.
The work of the IT and Operations teams is focused more on the successful integration of these applications and on the ongoing management and control of data flows, with the need for a powerful middleware tool to automate and streamline this otherwise highly manual process which is prone to failure. This is where IKINDI’s KTier™ platform can help.
With the benefit of experience over the last ten years, Asset Management companies have become more discerning about what could and should be outsourced and what should be retained in-house from either a control or Intellectual Property perspective. Repeatable, automatable and low-value functions should be outsourced to a reputable service provider – typically in proven emerging economies where significant savings can be achieved.
In a successful outsourcing arrangement, once bedded down, the remaining challenges can revolve around time-zone and cultural differences where companies could help bridge this gap with the benefit of ‘IKINDI in the Middle’.
