Overview

It is essential for global asset management companies to be able to quickly and securely transmit transaction and balance information between locations spanning several countries. In addition, firms need to continually improve the overall efficiency of their back-office operations (post-trade, fund position control managed by asset management companies, cash control) across all locations, while maintaining a high quality of service and minimizing operational risk. Having one unified global back-office management system is a cost-effective and reliable way to address all of these needs, while moving forward with global expansion. T-STAR/GV, created to meet these needs, supports the back-office operations of asset management companies 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
