Global Firm’s Success Requires Increased Scalability
PineBridge Investments was experiencing rapid growth when the firm determined that their current portfolio management system could no longer perform at scale. PineBridge 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. PineBridge conducted a rigorous evaluation process with several systems that could potentially meet their needs. After several rounds of product demonstrations and proof of concepts, the PineBridge team decided that Broadridge Portfolio Management for CLO financial technology was the most compelling solution and uniquely positioned to meet their needs.
Fully Automated Solution Empowers Growth
Following the implementation of Sentry PM, PineBridge continued to experience tremendous growth in multiple areas of their business. In just two years, the firm:
- Grew CLO assets from $7 billion AUM to $9.25 billion AUM
- 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 and a deeper breadth of functionality. PineBridge Investments considers Broadridge’s Sentry PM a strategic partner: the increased efficiency, scale, and transparency it provides is integral as PineBridge continues to grow its operations.
