In addition, Insight will be employing FMCSylvanâs Stock Level Attribution module and the innovative Fixed Income Attribution module, which has been extremely well received in the asset management community. Insight will also be utilising FMCSylvanâs web-based reporting module to generate detailed performance reports and online analysis.
This sale represents the conclusion of a rigorous review of six vendor solutions to identify the best solution for Insightâs purposes. The key factors in the selection of FMCSylvan included the tight level of integration among the modules of FMCSylvan, the fixed income attribution methodology, which was aligned well with Insightâs investment process, and the scalable nature of the application. Another factor was FMCâs track record in serving the investment management community for more than 27 years and its extensive FMCSylvan client base.
