The partnership launched the integrated data management and analytics solution for asset managers in order to foster workflow efficiency in performance, risk and regulatory reporting.
In practice, the solution combines Confluence’s StatPro Analytics – which includes investment analytics related to performance, attribution, risk, GIPS, among others, with Arcesium’s Financial Data Stack modules and cloud-native data management platform – Aquata.

Mahesh Narayan, segment head for institutional asset managers at Arcesium, said: “This partnership enables Arcesium’s clients to benefit from Confluence’s advanced performance, attribution, risk, GIPS, and other investment analytics to help streamline workflows and improve decision making.” 

According to the businesses, the consolidated offering presents a lower cost option – available as a technology solution or a fully managed service.

Damian Handzy, managing director of Confluence Analytics, highlighted how integration can lead to improved client experience and the ability for users to make better investment decisions.

“Facing tighter regulations and competition, asset managers with benefit from Confluence and Arcesium’s new integrated solution with streamlined data management, coupled with powerful performance and risk analytics,” he said.
