AIM Software has announced that Conning, a global investment management firm headquartered in North America, will use GAIN as its central EDM platform.
Conning is set to grow significantly over the next ten years, and is implementing AIM Software’s GAIN to help realise its strategic growth plan. The investment management firm has licensed three modules from the GAIN product suite: GAIN Security Master®, GAIN Portfolio Pricing® and GAIN Corporate Actions®.
Conning will use the GAIN suite of business applications as a centralised data hub to streamline the sourcing, scrubbing and validation of its security, pricing and corporate actions data. With intelligent workflows, transparent data processes and exportable audit trails, GAIN will provide full data lineage and robust data governance. The system will be fully integrated with Conning’s IBOR and ABOR systems to deliver consistent and reliable data across all functions.
Maurice Heffernan, Chief Information Officer at Conning, said: “We selected AIM Software because of their focus on the buy-side and their productised approach. GAIN will serve as a data quality firewall that powers our downstream systems and operations with high quality data. It will also provide a centralised point of control for all of our data sources.
Brian Baczyk, Chief Data Officer at Conning stated: “This new platform will provide us with both the governance and agility required to manage business change and execute on our strategic growth goals.”
Sanjay Vatsa, Head of America at AIM Software, commented: “We are very pleased to welcome Conning to the AIM Software user community, and to be playing a key role in the realisation of their growth strategy.”
