At Asset Control we’re always looking for innovative ways to ensure we are serving our client base to the best possible standard, really getting into their heads and anticipating new requirements to build into our product roadmap.
So harnessing the old adage of poacher turned gamekeeper, Asset Control has developed a new initiative: Customers in Residence, in which individuals from key clients have moved on to come and work with us. We are doing it so we can tap into their brains and utilise their on-the-ground experience, bringing a whole new meaning to KYC.
Why now you may be asking? Well it goes without saying that the markets are undergoing phenomenal change and this shows no sign of stopping. So, our customers need to ensure they are ready for impending uncertainties and a less well-understood future. At the same time they must ensure they are in a position to take advantage of all the opportunities a multi-asset, multi-geographical trading environment presents.
This all means firms have big technology investment decisions to make and our customers need to know that when it comes to data management, we have thought of everything.
We’ve always had our finger on the pulse, but there’s nothing like hearing the challenges and opportunities direct from the horse’s mouth. That’s why we have a new addition to the team, Paolo Mittiga who has previously worked at the likes of Credit Suisse and Citadel. He has extensive experience across the tier one buy-side and sell-side community and will work with our existing team to strengthen our technology roadmap, give guidance on where to hone our focus and provide advice on how to develop current strategies.
And if you haven’t heard enough, watch this space for Paolo’s perspective on his work with us as he contributes his very own blogs to our site.
