Schroders Chooses MackeyRMS To Enhance Research Management Process

Feb 15 2017 | 10:50pm ET

Global investment manager Schroders has chosen Mackey LLC’s Research Management Software system to enhance its research process, bringing nominal AUM represented on the platform to $760 billion across hedge fund, asset management and fund of funds segments.

Mackey’s RMS is a highly automated and ultra-mobile SaaS-based research management software designed to enhance the internal research processes across the investment teams of leading institutional investors. 

The system will provide Schroders with a streamlined platform for the aggregation and organization of mission-critical notes, emails, and documents, the company said in a statement, and will bring improved usability and mobility to an already stellar suite of internal research tools. Through the automated system, Schroders will receive a real-time, highly configurable lens into firm-wide research processes across the multi-class, multi-currency complexities of its investment offering.

“’Our team is thrilled to have Schroders as a client as we continue to expand our global footprint,” said Luis Castellanos, VP of sales at MackeyRMS, in the statement. “We are witnessing a growing need for SaaS-based research management solutions among the leading asset managers, and find ourselves uniquely positioned to help large firms achieve success when adopting RMS for the first time, or when converting from a legacy provider.”

Schroders manages around $460 billion for a worldwide client roster of major financial institutions, including pension funds, banks and insurance companies, local and public authorities, governments, charities, high net worth individuals and retail investors.

Founded in 2011, MackeyRMS is a dominant player in research management systems for hedge funds, multi-manager and sell-side institutions. The company, whose platform aggregates and organizes research content while also being highly portable, collaborative and device-agnostic, was the subject of a FINtech Focus article in January.
