Back Office Outsourcing Data Management in Markit EDM


As part of an enterprise wide programme to deliver a technology and operational infrastructure to support a client’s business strategy, a data management solution was required to meet strategic objectives.

  • Trade Management data to be migrated to the external fund administrator
  • Custody data to be migrated to the external fund administrator
  • Back Office Operations to be outsourced to the external fund administrator

The client’s problem was that the business information required to meet the objectives was disparate across the enterprise and had to be sourced and aggregated from a variety of technology and information platforms.
