An Archer Story

Accelerating growth after multiple acquisitions

The Challenge

A mid-tier investment manager acquired four firms in three distribution channels, which managed international portfolios; had multi-sleeve relationships; and operated on independent IBOR, trading, reporting and billing systems. The complexity of managing the business across multiple platforms had increased with each acquisition until the rate of cost growth threatened to exceed the rate of asset growth. What’s more, the lack of transparency into the corporate-wide portfolio made GIPs compliance and SEC reporting a burden.

Archer’s Solution

Archer offered the only multi-channel solution on the market. The firm instituted Archer’s single-platform cloud technology with data sharing and third party communication capabilities across all investment business functions, and selectively engaged operations support for non-core functions. The divorce of fixed-cost acceleration from asset growth created a business model capable of efficiently leveraging opportunities for expansion. Archer’s multi-channel solution integrated smoothly with existing systems on the institutional side of the business, and the new operational support was leveraged to improve business efficiency, accuracy, transparency and compliance across the board.
