BNY Mellon Launches Middle Office Solutions for State of Wisconsin Investment Board

BNY Mellon is now providing a full suite of middle office services to support the State of Wisconsin Investment Board’s (SWIB) investment operation, with assets valued at $105 billion as of September 30, 2016.

BNY Mellon and its Eagle Investment Systems affiliate are supporting SWIB’s investment and data management needs through BNY Mellon’s OnCoreSM suite of middle office solutions, including a fully integrated data warehouse, portfolio accounting, trade support, corporate actions, collateral management, pricing, performance measurement and derivatives processing.

Since 1991, BNY Mellon and Eagle have provided SWIB with a wide range of investment and integrated data management services, spanning custody, data management, cash management, and securities lending programs, among others.

Michael Williamson, executive director of SWIB said: “By expanding our relationship with BNY Mellon, we now have a state of the art platform, a critical component of our new portfolio management system. This new system supports SWIB’s innovative investment approach and our data management requirements. BNY Mellon’s middle office solution allows us to leverage the strategic investments we’ve made throughout our long standing relationship. The conversion to BNY Mellon’s investment book of record allows us to deliver a high level of data quality for our investment teams.”

“By providing the needed infrastructure, BNY Mellon is supporting asset owners who are making the shift toward in-house investment management,” said Chandresh Iyer, global head of Middle Office Solutions at BNY Mellon. “Expanding our relationship with SWIB through OnCore is an important milestone for both firms. Our investments in technology and people will enable SWIB to transform their operating model and drive value for their organization.”

“SWIB’s deployment of middle office services is a great example of leveraging our capabilities to enable quality investment book of record data,” said Mal Cullen, Chief Executive Officer of Eagle Investment Systems. “We are focused on providing the services to ensure firms have the high quality data that is critical for the front office.”
