24 February 2014
BI-SAM, a leading provider of performance measurement and attribution, risk analytics, composites management and client reporting solutions for the global asset management industry, today spotlighted the considerable successes it achieved in 2013.
During the year, BI-SAM grew its client base by over 20% globally. New clients were added throughout Europe and North America, choosing BI-SAM to support their local and global operating models.
To support this business growth and maintain its market-leading position, BI-SAM strengthened its bench of talented professionals over the course of 2013 by recruiting 40 new employees. New hires were made at all seniority levels, in all areas (R&D, Sales & Marketing, Account Management, Professional Services) and in all regions. BI-SAM also expanded its global presence with the opening of companies in Geneva and Singapore.
As well as expanding its size and reach in 2013, BI-SAM reinforced its commitment to significant investment in its professional staff and working practices, to ensure that all clients receive an excellent service at all times. As part of this commitment, BI-SAM is actively supporting staff to achieve CIPM and CFA certification, further enhancing the level of expertise and quality of support available to its clients.
“For BI-SAM, 2013 was a year of major successes and milestones, which saw us build on our already strong foundations and position us for further success,” said Alexandre Harkous, CEO of BI-SAM. “Our core product, B-One, is in production use across most of our client base. Many of our clients are now increasing the value they derive from B-One by licensing additional modules from us, such as composite management and fixed income attribution. We are extremely proud of the trust our clients place in BI-SAM and we continue to put them at the heart of everything we do. To this end, we have significantly strengthened our team of highly-trained and dedicated professionals to ensure we continue to deliver exceptional products, services and support globally. We now look forward to building on our achievements to make 2014 even more successful for our clients.”
