StatPro are pleased to announce that we are sponsors at this year’s Next Generation Investment Performance Measurement hosted by Waters Technology on the 22nd June.

Performance measurement in the investment management industry is notoriously complex, made more so by multiple data sets, asset classes and systems.  Asclients continue to demand greater transparency and information about where their money is being invested and how their portfolios are performing, it is vital that asset managers have high quality, clean data at their disposal in order to respond to their clients’ demands.

Key topics include:StatPro-NGPM-Register-3@4x-100

  • The latest innovations in performance measurement
  • Transforming performance through technology
  • Addressing the three key challenges of cost management, operational efficiency, and stakeholder service levels
