The latest version of Taliance’s front office platform, GlobalAsset, enables asset and fund management businesses to automatically calculate the ratios and deliver reporting that complies with the requirements enshrined in the Alternative Investment Fund Managers’ Directive (AIFMD).
Leading real estate asset management business, PERIAL, is one of the first business broadening its use of the GlobalAsset platform to ensure compliance with the AIFMD legislation. Underlining the capability of GlobalAsset, PERIAL has already achieved success with the latest version by getting its AIFMD Q4 2014 reporting validated by the regulator.
“Making innovative use of technology is increasingly becoming the key differentiator for asset managers today as clients and regulators scrutinise every aspect of the alternative investment space,” says Philippe Ifergane, PERIAL’s CFO. “By using GlobalAsset to ensure compliance with the AIFMD directive, we have at the same time been able to leverage it to enhance our operational processes and drive competitive edge as we go out into the market to look for new business opportunities.
“The Taliance solution has, for example, enabled us to calculate and put at the disposal of our business users the wealth of dispersion data and risk ratio information that AIFMD reporting requires to be disclosed, effectively turning a regulatory constraint into a powerful data mining solution – a key benefit in what is a rapidly evolving and increasingly competitive marketplace,” adds Ifergane.
Guillaume Fiastre, CEO, Taliance, says: “PERIAL is an pioneering organisation with an in-depth understanding both of this sector and of how using our platform can not only help it to improve its risk management capabilities, achieve compliance with AIFMD but also deliver an advantage over its competitors in the market by accelerating all the forecasting and decision-making processes.
“The success it has achieved points the way forward to other real estate and alternative investment fund management companies by highlighting the benefits that GlobalAsset can bring, not just in achieving compliance but also using that work to provide a foundation for driving efficiencies, improving processes and ultimately building competitive edge,” he adds.
For instance, PERIAL is focused on using GlobalAsset to provide both middle and front office staff with data on-demand and the kind of analytics capability that decreases turnaround time for controlling and due diligence. It also aims to use the tool to increase operational agility by running real-time ‘what if’ analytics as and when investment opportunities arise.
