The Dutch State Treasury Agency (DSTA) has selected Trema’s Finance KIT to support its debt management operations strategy. The DSTA, The Netherlands’s debt management office, prepares and defines funding policy and represents the State in financial markets and transactions and handles all operational and strategic aspects of borrowing. Prior to adopting Trema Finance KIT, the DSTA had a disparate systems environment, combining a number of different proprietary applications for liability management. Meanwhile, SEB Asset Management has gone live with the latest version of Trema Finance KIT. SEB Asset Management has upgraded the solution to deliver improvements in position, performance and limit monitoring, enabling risk managers, traders, portfolio managers and limit controllers to better identify the impact their decisions have on the performance of their investments. Trema has also announced two new appointments to its Asset Management segment. Simon Drinkall has joined as Sales Manager for UK, Ireland and the Netherlands, while Bernadette Musker will look after Pre-Sales for UK and Ireland.
