Buyside PMS may include portfolio risk, analysis, pre-trade / post-trade, portfolio/fund accounting, and shadow accounting. Not to mention IBOR. This report outlines the critical functions of portfolio systems, the buy side clients that need them, and the universe of key suppliers.

With the pressures of new regulations, lower margins, investment diversity, and major wealth demographic shifts all affect the buy side, the days of one size fits all no longer cuts it. Portfolio systems now range from enterprise platforms reaching further into middle and back office with sophisticated compliance & risk modules. Asset owners, asset managers, and industry intermediaries all need portfolio systems, but all with their own varying degrees of complexity and functional coverage.

From real-time risk analysis to aggregation of internal and external asset managers, anyone who is evaluating how to operationally and technically manage their portfolios needs to understand the growing universe of suppliers and the possible disruptors. Asset and fund managers need to know what is available in the portfolio system marketplace in order to utilize technology to their competitive advantage. The goal is the right fit of technology to achieve optimal investment return objectives, being cost-efficient while minimizing operational risk. Having the right portfolio system setup is a major step along this path.
