Front Office IT

Put efficiency at the forefront of your front office.

A technology strategy that lets your front office perform efficiently is vital. But with a bewildering number of technologies on the market, making the right choice can be a challenge.
Our experience in implementing global front office strategies complemented by our knowledge of the provider landscape means we’re uniquely well placed to find the best solution for your business.

Independent advice

We are not tied to any providers. We are completely independent and our advice is free from conflict of interest.

Our experience covers all possible front office activities including portfolio management, trading, risk, and performance attribution.

 Steps to a successful front office solution

1. We define a strategy

We review current architecture, advise on an end goal, and then a strategy to achieve that.

2. We help choose the right partners

We weigh up the benefits of ‘best of breed’ technologies versus a centralised solution. With our experience and extensive benchmarking data, we can help negotiate the best value.

3. We build a team that’s right for the client

Many of our team have specific industry experience. We’re able to pick people who have developed, built and implemented the client’s solution – and can give real, practical advice.

4. We talk to the client team in language they understand

We’re used to working closely with front office users who aren’t necessarily tech savvy. We understand the importance of explaining technology from a user perspective.

Our front office IT team constantly engage the provider community to ensure that, when it comes to selecting the right platform for your business, no one is better placed.
