ION Analytics, a global provider of personalized predictive data and market intelligence to advisers, banks, investors, law firms, and corporate organizations, announces that St. James’s Place (SJP) has “selected ION-owned Backstop Solutions’ Research Management Software (RMS) to support its fund due diligence process.”

Backstop Solutions’ innovative RMS, integration solutions, and services facilitate SJP’s technology strategy “to move to one investment research management platform by providing a single source of information.”

Backstop Solutions will enable SJP “to consolidate its qualitative and quantitative data into a unified, dynamic platform across all asset classes.”

The investment team “manages 12 portfolios, 32 funds, and 88 strategies across multiple asset classes – including equities, fixed income property, and private equity.”

ION Analytics says that it is passionate about “building solutions that help you break down the barriers to data access.”
