Nomura Asset Management Co., Ltd. (NAM), an internationally recognised asset manager with approximately 53 trillion Yen AUM** based in Tokyo, Japan, is now live on cloud-based services for the Charles River Investment Management Solution (Charles River IMS) across multiple continents and asset classes including fixed income and equity, FX, institutional and mutual funds. This transition ensures Nomura’s portfolio managers, traders and compliance teams have the most current, multi-asset decision support, trading and compliance capabilities in a consolidated front office solution.
“NAM has been a client since 2008 and is the largest transition globally to date onto our Software as a Service model”
“Transitioning to Charles River’s cloud-based service was a strategic decision that positions NAM for growth across our asset management business,” said Mutsuo Kobayashi, Senior Managing Director, NAM. “SaaS will enable us to increase the frequency of upgrades whilst reducing the burden on our internal team to deliver the most up to date capabilities to our Portfolio Managers, Trading and Compliance teams.”
“NAM has been a client since 2008 and is the largest transition globally to date onto our Software as a Service model,” said Cameron Field, Managing Director – Asia Pacific. “Now that SaaS has gained widespread acceptance on the buy-side, clients of all sizes are embracing it because of its predictability. They can manage costs and scale as their business grows, and with technology that’s always up to date they can more easily adopt the latest capabilities.”
