Idea Group is one of the pioneers of the introduction of automated messaging to the funds industry, and we are very aware that different communities have different needs. We address this by taking the lead and bringing together the primary participants in these communities, understanding the challenges that they face, and then working with them to create messaging solutions which bring benefits to the entire market.
We are the Chair of the ViaNova group, which focuses on the UK Pensions space and are also the facilitators of GAIA, which has brought standard messaging to the global hedge fund community. Our experience also extends to the Australian market, where we initiated their domestic mutual fund automation programme, and we were also the authors of SHarP.
Our clients benefit from our unparalleled insight and understanding of how to get the most out of the associated efficiency in operational processes, which we have gleaned from our roles in these major initiatives.
Our close relationship with developing market practice , through participation in official industry bodies, has enhanced our ability to build specialised automated messaging applications which are used by leading fund managers and administrators. Our products are simple to implement and offer comprehensive routines for integration with existing in-house applications.
Automation brings lower messaging costs, lower operating costs, can bring improved counterpart deadlines, and greatly reduces the risk of losses through operational errors.
