BNP Paribas Securities Services: Leveraging technology in private capital
The need to deliver operational excellence and achieve economies of scale is inciting the asset servicing industry to invest in new technologies. Whilst the trend towards digitialisation to replace manual, repetitive tasks in back/middle offices is clearly visible, operational infrastructure still remains underdeveloped within private capital.
BNP Paribas Securities Services’ goal is to be the premier asset servicing provider globally, offering comprehensive, cutting edge digital solutions to the private capital market. In 2019 the private capital team at BNP Paribas Securities Services was tasked with identifying ways to increase the value provided to the asset servicer’s clients.
With the growing maturity of the private capital sector, BNP Paribas Securities Services had to find the right partner allowing them to tackle their main challenges:
BNP Paribas Securities Services particularly appreciated the in-depth understanding of the team, the ability to find solutions for the complex needs of private market participants and their agile methodology.
“With this partnership, we are able to offer our clients powerful analytics and reporting for their investors via a dedicated and interactive web portal for real-time monitoring and live scenario analysis”
Laurent Durdilly, Head of Private Capital Solutions at BNP Paribas Securities Services
“AssetMetrix was the perfect fit for us. Having a partner who clearly understands our structures and finds efficient ways to address this complexity, is key. Working as one team and not two companies has made this collaboration a success.”
