October 10, 2017

Melbourne, October 10, 2017 —SCB Asset Management Company Limited (SCBAM) is live with enhanced portfolio management capabilities in the Charles River Investment Management Solution (Charles River IMS). SCBAM has been a Charles River client for more than four years and uses Charles River IMS for portfolio management, trading and compliance across multiple asset classes, including equities, fixed income, FX, and derivatives.

SCBAM has adopted Charles River’s next generation Manager Workbench, a centralized portfolio management workspace that helps portfolio managers work more productively and improves communication with compliance officers, risk managers and traders. Intuitive data visualization and aggregation capabilities help them easily view exposures and holdings, understand the impact of asset allocation decisions, and construct portfolios that align with investment mandates.

“Charles River IMS has been instrumental in supporting SCBAM’s rapid business growth,” said Smith Banomyong, CEO, SCB Asset Management. “Having a single portfolio decision support platform with cash management helps portfolio managers respond faster and more strategically to market risks and opportunities for all asset classes. We are also able to reduce operational risk by automating workflows and eliminating spreadsheets.”

“The Manager Workbench delivers speed and flexibility that are unmatched for portfolio construction, particularly for multi-asset and fixed income managers,” said Cameron Field, Managing Director-APAC, Charles River. “Additionally, with our strong support for both local Thai requirements and global securities, clients like SCBAM are well positioned to introduce new investment strategies in the future.”
