We speak to Neil Smyth, Marketing and Technology Director, about the innovative services the firm provides. StratPro’s flagship product is a cloud-based platform that provides vital analysis of portfolio performance, attribution, risk and compliance. This multi-asset class analytics platform helps StatPro’s clients increase as- sets under management, improve client service, meet tough regulations and reduce costs. Neil explains how the firm has grown immensely since establishment and how the firm is continuing to develop its service offering to better support clients. “StatPro has grown its annualized recurring revenue from less than £1 million in 1999 to around £32 million today (including Investor Analytics on a pro forma basis). The Group has operations in Europe, North America, South Africa, Asia and Australia, with hundreds of clients in 38 countries around the world. Approximately 80% of recurring reve- nues are generated outside the UK, and its shares are listed on AIM, highlighting how far the firm has come since inception. “However, we do not rest on our laurels. StatPro continues to work with the latest technology. We believe that combining the best technology with our in-depth industry knowledge is what makes us special and sets us apart from the competition. During 2015, we upgraded many components of our private cloud platform including the core network, which is at the heart of any system. In 2016, we are replacing the server hardware in our datacenters with more compact, more cost efficient hardware that will run the analytics engines, databases and web servers for StatPro Revolution Analytics.” Neil adds that the firm has a number of exhilarating plans for the future which will help it to better support its clients. “Moving forward, we will continue to develop our cloud-based platform to ensure that we’re delivering a truly scalable and functionally rich solu- tion to our clients. We are launching StatPro Revolution Performance in Q3 2016 and this extension to the Revolution platform brings unparal- leled power to the performance measurement process for asset man- agers of all sizes. We continue to integrate the Investor Analytics risk product into the Revolution platform after the acquisition of this New York-based cloud vendor in January 2016. The combination of StatPro’s historical risk model and extensive asset coverage with IAs Monte-Carlo and factor based risk analytics makes for a very powerful risk offering within the platform. We also continue to migrate clients from our on premise and hosted StatPro Seven product to the cloud-based Revolu- tion platform, as we add more and more functionality bringing complete performance and risk management into a single system.” Best Portfolio Analysis Software
