The updated solution will, according to Trema, enable risk managers, traders, portfolio managers and limit controllers to better identify the impact their decisions have on the performance of their investments. Furthermore, SEB Asset Management will utilise the system’s open and extensible architecture, which delivers front office and risk management capabilities with broad instrument coverage. The static data framework in Finance KIT will also provide SEB Asset Management with a better platform for the support of instruments, corporate actions and benchmark data.
