Co-Sourcing
Aubrey Williams – Operations Manager

Aubrey Williams

It is an exciting time for the MD Solutions Data Management team. Already in the first quarter of 2015, we welcomed our two newest co-sourcing partners, bringing our service commitment to over thirty thousand accounts reconciled daily with total client AUM over $42B.
As the investment management industry evolves, we continue to see an uptick in interest for our services by firms looking to improve operational efficiency and gain cost savings. Coupled with increased demand, we continue to expand our service offering and are transitioning from a reconciliation focused department to full business process outsourcing.
This development has led to a positive response from our clients as they continue to expand their existing relationship with us and many have already started taking advantage of all the other services we provide.

Continuing Education
Zdravko Daskalov – Education Consultant

Recently, MD Solutions conducted a Hands-On Workshop on Advent Software® Advent Portfolio Exchange (APX) in our Fort Myers, FL office. The participants in this five day introductory class to APX represent the two types of clients who can benefit most from live training.
One of the participants, who is a marketing professional at a Miami, FL based financial advisor, needed a broad overview of the system. To-date he had used primarily the contact management functionality of APX and wanted to learn more so that he can be more effective in his role.
The other two participants, who are part of the accounting department of an Icelandic bank, had used APX for a while. They wanted to validate their firm’s use of APX and learn about the full capabilities of the product. While they have had many custom reports built in order to meet the local regulatory requirements, they are using APX just like a US based APX client who is investing internationally.
Whether you drive across the state or fly halfway around the globe, MD solutions is eager to be your services partner.
