The COO has long been the driving force of improving efficiency in the Middle and Back Office.


Now, leading COOs are adding “Operational Alpha” to the Front Office too, as they evaluate a new generation of investment process tools that support and improve decision-making for investment teams - helping the firm become more profitable & scalable.

A Front Office Decision-Support & Analytics Platform 

Better Performance, Lower Costs, Faster AUM Growth

"Firms also have invested in analytics that assess portfolio managers’ actions in advance of trades and help to counteract behavioral bias in investment decisions. The payoff has been substantial, adding 100 to 200 basis points to portfolio returns."
McKinsey  November 2018 - Achieving Digital Alpha in Asset Management
