Linedata Services says that Baring Asset Management – the first customer to use Landmark, the first generation of its LongView Trading application – has gone live with the latest version.
Baring Asset Management (BAM), which manages over £17 billion (US$30.9 billion) recently set out to achieve Microsoft Windows XP desktop compliance as part of a group-wide migration to Microsoft Windows XP. As part of this project, it decided to upgrade to the latest version of LongView Trading.
A Linedata customer since 1994, BAM has used LongView Trading mainly for managing its equity portfolios. Linedata says BAM is now looking to use LongView Trading to manage other asset types and use more of the functionality that has been progressively built into recent versions as part of Linedata Services’ development of the product.
“We were impressed with the success of the move to the latest version of LongView Trading,” says James Whyte, Head of Business Systems for BAM. “In the next few months we are looking forward to deriving additional business benefit from the new functionality of this version of the system.”
John Legrand, LongView Operations Manager for Linedata Services, adds that “we continually look to improve our systems to meet the requirements of the marketplace, and this is an excellent case in point of a customer being able to leverage such developments to their advantage.”
