Case Study: ACA's NorthPoint IMS for Asset Managers

August 2, 2018 by Johan Glozman

ACA's NorthPoint Investment Management System (NorthPoint IMS) offers many benefits for leading asset managers. This case study explains how a growing fixed income asset management firm had business challenges due to a lack of integrated portfolio compliance and straight through processing in their trading workflow. Their order management software did not have needed portfolio management features, and it did not have a robust, built-in compliance engine. The firm chose ACA's NorthPoint IMS to solve these challenges, increase operational efficiency, reduce risk, and meet regulatory compliance obligations. Download our latest case study to learn more.
