NEW YORK -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- SimCorp, a leading provider of investment management solutions and services for the global financial services industry, today announced a complimentary webinar in conjunction with Financial Technologies Forum scheduled for April 29, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. EDT.

The webinar, entitled “Optimizing Derivatives Processing: ‘Alpha-tize’ your Infrastructure and Take Control of Capital”, will feature Will Rhode, Principal, Director of Fixed Income at Tabb Group; Janelle Wiggans, Senior Consultant and Operations Specialist at InvestTech Systems Consulting; and Jorgen Vuust Jensen, Domain Manager, Business Foundation and Financial Instruments at SimCorp. David Kubersky, Managing Director of SimCorp North America, will moderate the discussion.

The 60 minute webinar will outline how firms can use multi-asset coverage, straight-through-processing and an investment book of record (IBOR) to:

  • Ensure regulatory compliance to stay competitive
  • Utilize automation and integration to reduce costs and operational risk
  • Support the full derivatives trade lifecycle to streamline operations
  • Adapt to changing market requirements
  • Take control of the collateral process and reduce risk

“As we continue to see asset managers, insurance firms and pension funds leveraging derivatives as part of their portfolios, the need for an underlying infrastructure that can support the full lifecycle of those assets becomes increasingly important,” notes Kubersky. “This webinar will explore what firms can do today to redesign technology and consolidate operations to competitively manage the complex demands of derivatives processing.”
