II Memberships Webinar: Gaining Efficiency through Unified Front-to-Back Investment Platforms

Sep 9th 2020
11:00 am (eastern)


Investment management firms struggling to cope with fee compression, the flight to passive products and the Covid-19 economic shock are looking to their technology organizations to increase efficiency and gain operating leverage. One approach to cutting maintenance and integration expense is to replace assorted front-, middle- and back-office systems with a single, integrated investment platform. In this session, we’ll discuss the issues buyside firms should weigh when considering an integrated investment platform, and look at the experience of some firms that have adopted front-to-back, unified systems.

This webinar is 60 minutes long and scheduled to start at 11:00 am EST.
