How should the new year be known? It should be known as “The Year of Comprehensive Real-time Solutions.” As margin compression continues across the board, the inefficiencies of a bifurcated infrastructure (i.e., several different systems) and/or portfolio managers utilizing incomplete or stale information to make investment decisions, won’t be tolerated. Real-time portfolio management across asset classes will evolve from a niche competitive advantage into a critical need for traders and fund managers alike. A real-time view of a portfolio’s net asset value, cash balances, risks, exposures, and sensitivities, allows institutional asset managers to forecast inflows and outflows better; see the total cost of ownership across their portfolio at all times; and capitalize on market movements for higher returns when entering and exiting positions.
