7IM has selected Bloomberg AIM, an order management system, to boost the firm’s goal of an efficient target operating model to support assets under management (AUM) growth, according to the company.
71M is a young investment management platform that works with professional wealth managers, planners, advisers and private investors. The company has grown to over £21 billion in AUM
71M explains that by incorporating Bloomberg AIM it will benefit from new tools that reduce manual processes and helps the platform to scale further. 7IM states that it now has greater investment oversight including custom alerts and an end-to-end audit trail. Bloomberg AIM also improvs upon the reconciliation process for cash and corporate actions.
As well, 7IM has also adopted Bloomberg PORT to view and monitor intraday holdings.
Darren Fancourt, Head of Operational Change and Trading at 7IM described Bloomberg as a forward-thinking and digitally focused firm:
“The use of Bloomberg AIM has allowed us to significantly lower risk by leveraging market leading technology, ensuring operational efficiency across the value chain in anticipation of our next growth period.”
