NEW YORK, July 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SimCorp, a leading provider of investment management solutions and services for the global financial services industry, today announced the upcoming webinar, 'Transitioning Away from POINT - Understand your Options,' which will take place on Tuesday, July 26, from 12:00-1:00pm ET. In this complimentary webinar, professionals from Citisoft and SimCorp will discuss how these unexpected changes will impact fixed income operations and the essential criteria for a successful replacement.
In December 2015, Barclays agreed to sell its risk analytics and index solutions business. As a result, POINT will only be supported for 18 months at most after the deal is completed, which means all POINT clients will need a new solution in place within the next year to ensure business continuity.
Join the discussion to learn more about the following areas:
- Hear findings from Citisoft's recent survey of Barclays POINT users
- Assess global sentiment of the transaction
- Crystalize the impact on investment managers
- Begin conversation on path forward
- SimCorp's comprehensive alternative to POINT
David Bates has been at the forefront of the discussion since the plan to retire Barclays POINT was announced in late 2015. He has authored numerous blogs and surveyed the Barclays POINT user community. The report of the findings can be found here.
This event is open to investment management firms, consulting partners, industry analysts and research organizations.
