Q&A with Nick Fienberg, Head of Operations

How do clients stay ahead of developments in technology?

It’s tough to be on top of everything that’s happening. New systems, platforms, even vendors are constantly appearing. Because we work right across the sector we have practical experience of new developments and bring that knowledge into each new job. We’re not simply waiting for new tech to appear, we’re actively looking for products and services that will improve our clients’ operating models.

What’s the single most important factor in creating a successful operating model?

Making the best use of data. Everything we do is about leveraging core operational data to better suit Front Office, Distribution, Risk and Compliance users. And by defining and implementing data strategies for the future we can protect our clients’ long term interests and keep them competitive.
