F&C Asset Management rolls out INFOmatch
London-based asset manager F&C has decided to implement INFOmatch, the market data cost & contract management system, to manage its market data expenditure. INFOmatch replaces MDM.
AMSTERDAM and LONDON, July 17, 2006 – Screen INFOmatch, independent experts in market data and providers of market data management solutions, today announced that London-based F&C Asset Management has gone live with the ASP version of INFOmatch, the market data management and inventory system. INFOmatch replaces MDM, a system from Market Data Services Ltd.
Michael Lackman, market data and procurement manager at F&C, says he preferred the speed and navigation of INFOmatch as well as the fact that people who aren\’t market data specialists can use it. “It is easy to use visually [and] it is user friendly,” he says. “F&C chose the ASP version because space is an issue going forward, and it\’s possible to use it from home.”
Lackman was familiar with INFOmatch from a previous job, and after using MDSL’s Market Data Manager system for about a year, he decided to switch to INFOmatch.
Peter Fruitema, Managing Director Screen INFOmatch, commends Michael Lackman for its market data expertise. Michael has been in this business for many, many years. He is a true expert in market data administration. It is extremely stimulating for all of us that INFOmatch has been chosen by F&C.
