Bloomberg onboards more than 100 buy-side firms globally in 12 months
More than 100 clients globally have successfully implemented Bloomberg's Buy-Side Solutions over the past year, between March 2020 and 2021.
During the 12-month period, all implementations were completed remotely due to Covid-19 lockdown restrictions. Bloomberg’s Buy-Side Solutions include its Asset & Investment Manager (AIM) and PORT Enterprise solutions, which enable investors to more efficiently navigate volatile markets and an evolving global regulatory environment, and are used by some of the world's largest asset managers, hedge funds, insurance companies, pension funds and government agencies.
Clients were onboarded across the Americas, EMEA and APAC, and include Lombard Odier Asset Management, Union Investment, Global X Japan and Harvest Fund Management, among others.
Bloomberg’s global implementation teams worked in partnership with client firms to establish the necessary connectivity and integration, overcoming challenges presented by the remote work environment. Clients experienced a seamless transition to Bloomberg’s Buy-Side Solutions with minimal impact to their workflows.
“As the buy-side continues to navigate the broad impact of the disruption caused by Covid-19, resilient technology solutions and operating models are crucial,” says Ian Peckett, Global Head of Buy-Side Solutions at Bloomberg. “During the last year, we have provided our clients with extensive support to help them manage the implementation process remotely. Our team is committed to providing buy-side clients with efficient and effective solutions that enable them to make well-informed investment decisions, regardless of the current global challenges.”
Bloomberg’s Buy-Side Solutions deliver a streamlined enterprise experience for the entire investment lifecycle. Clients have access to a wide range of solutions which encompass research and portfolio management to order and execution management, and post-trade and operations, all supported by advanced risk and performance along with data management and infrastructure. As unprecedented market conditions continue to impact buy-side firms, Bloomberg has continued to support buy-side clients globally across the investment process through efficient workflows and optimised operational capabilities.
