Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management, a subsidiary of the family run investment house Edmond de Rothschild, has expanded its range of services to institutional asset managers with an entirely new offering.
The group intends to provide third-party asset managers with portfolio and distribution management tools originally developed for its own needs, it said in a statement.
The new extended outsourcing services (EOS) offering is tailored for small and medium sized asset managers, who need to control their cost base in an increasingly competitive environment.
With EOS portfolio management, in addition to having access to Simcorp Dimension PMS, asset managers will benefit from a fully serviced front- to back-office solution, including middle-office and data management services.
