DST Global Solutions, a provider of systems and services to the investment management industry, has made available Anova, its middle office investment analytics platform, as a hosted service to investment and wealth management firms globally.
The Anova hosted service is provided by DST Global Solutions’ parent company DST Systems, which has operated data centres in support of its financial services clients for more than 25 years. The hosted service will help investment managers, from large institutions to small specialist boutique investment firms, carry out investment analytics online in a highly cost efficient, secure and customised manner, according to the company.
As well as reducing the cost of ownership (TCO), the service is designed to enable rapid implementations. An additional benefit is that the Anova hosted service is designed to provide accessibility to the enterprise-wide investment and risk analytics data from any location in the world, while supporting local compliance and regulatory requirements. Clients pay a single annual subscription for the service, which covers hosting, technology support and software upgrades.
Des Gallacher, global head, data management and analytics at DST Global Solutions, said: “The service we offer will meet the scalability needs of our largest global clients, while being just as appealing an approach to organisations at the other end of the spectrum. The service will help investment management firms stay ahead as their volumes increase and their organisations grow. We also pride ourselves on providing a highly secure, scalable and most importantly, cost efficient Anova hosted solution.”
