Global Firm’s Success Requires Increased Scalability
The firm was experiencing rapid growth when the leaders determined that their current portfolio management system could no longer perform at scale. As a result, they began the search for a new platform. They sought a fully automated, front-to-back-office solution engineered to handle the complexities of their growing collateralized loan obligation (CLO) business. After conducting a rigorous evaluation process with several systems that could meet their needs, including several rounds of product demonstrations and proofs of concept, the team decided that Broadridge’s Sentry PM was the most compelling solution uniquely positioned to meet their needs.
Fully Automated Solution Empowers Growth
Following the implementation of Sentry PM, the client continued to experience tremendous growth in multiple areas of their business. In just two years, the firm:
- Grew targeted AUM from $7 billion to $9.25 billion
- Increased from 17 to 25 SMAs
- Issued six new CLOs
- Added product coverage for CLO debt, FX, derivatives
- Expanded into the APAC region
Years after implementation, Sentry PM continues to deliver results. This automated platform gives them the capacity to handle additional volume with a deeper breadth of functionality. The firm's leaders consider Broadridge’s Sentry PM a strategic partner: the increased efficiency, scale, and transparency it provides are integral to grow its operations.
“The Broadridge team took the time to learn about our workflows and processes to better tailor Sentry PM as a customized solution for our company.”
