SimCorp to Present at Buy-Side Technology North American Summit 2012

  • SimCorp presentation to address impact of system architecture on managing buy-side firms’ solvency

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- SimCorp, a leading provider of investment management software and services for the global financial services industry, will lead a discussion on managing solvency risk at the Buy-Side Technology North American Summit 2012. The presentation will be led by David Kubersky, Managing Director of SimCorp North America, and Jenny Ravenscroft, Chief Business Consultant of SimCorp North America.

The session will discuss:

  • How outdated systems and disparate system architecture negatively impact asset tracking, exposure measurement and portfolio valuation
  • What constitutes best-in-class technology when it comes to managing solvency
  • How to build a solid business case to measure the risks vs. rewards in back-office system re-achitecture and platform consolidation

“Technology investments have traditionally been modest in investment accounting platform upgrades and in other back-office system improvements,” notes Kubersky. “However, investment accounting and the back office is at the heart of a firm’s record-keeping and plays a critical role in helping asset managers stay abreast of their exposures, assets and liabilities in a timely fashion. The goal of our presentation is to help buy-side managers understand the detrimental impact of fragmented back-office workflows and data silos in effectively managing a firm’s solvency.”

The Buy-Side Technology North American Summit 2012 will be held on October 3, 2012 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York, NY. To learn more about attending the Buy-Side Technology North American Summit 2012, please visit To receive a copy of the presentation, please contact
