StockRate chooses PORTMAN: Danish investment management solution gains further traction among growing asset managers
The market-compliant investment management platform, PORTMAN, from Danish Vitec Aloc is increasingly becoming the preferred choice among growing asset managers looking for further scalability and wider business support. Most recently, the independent Danish asset management company StockRate has chosen the flexible standard solution.
Operational security, a better and deeper investment overview, and a more professional and sophisticated reporting were essential parameters for StockRate when choosing a new investment management solution.
“We are facing a significant development in our client and growth journey and want to strengthen our reporting and improve the customer experience for both new and existing customers. And it was absolutely essential for us that with the new solution, we can manage our own investment solutions, as the majority of our core business lies here, and we can do this with PORTMAN,” explains Kristian Kjer, Managing Director of StockRate.
For StockRate, who provide asset management within areas such as global equities, fixed incomes, property and alternative investments, and who highly prioritise sustainable investment, the new solution means there has been a significant boost to their value proposition to their clients, especially in reporting. With PORTMAN, it is possible to prepare yield reports that review individual client portfolios and provide a detailed overview of the client’s investments and development of the individual exposure. In addition, StockRate’s advisors get an intuitive and easily accessible tool via PORTMAN’s associated online dashboard, COCKPIT Advisor, giving them a complete overview of the clients’ securities, yields, composition, risks and transactions. A dashboard that paves the way for deeper and better advice, while increasing the everyday efficiency of advisors’ work.
In order to ensure the best possible service and customer experience, StockRate expects to be able to offer the online dashboard to their clients using the COCKPIT Client Site from mid-2023, making it easy and simple for clients to see and follow their investments anywhere and at any time.
The standard solution from Vitec Aloc is a modular system, making it possible for end-clients to purchase new modules as the business expands and new requirements arise. The flexibility and scalability were important when StockRate were choosing their future set-up.
“It was also important for us to find a solution that is flexible and scalable in relation to where we are as a business – not only now, but also in the future,” Kristian Kjer continues.
At Vitec Aloc, the arrival of yet another asset management company with high ambitions demonstrates the continuous work to further professionalise the PORTMAN platform – with a particular focus on quality and strengthening the value proposition to clients – has been the right path.
“We are proud to welcome StockRate to PORTMAN and look forward to a long and close collaboration. Over the past few years, we have seen an increasing influx of asset management companies, including Mercer Norway and the pension fund Oslo Pensjonsforsikring, who have all joined us as part of an ambitious growth journey. Common to them all has bee the desire to equip their advisors with a better and deeper investment overview, and to make the investment overview easily accessible for their clients,” says Mikkel Rahbek Brunse, CEO of Vitec Aloc.
