Following the success of a large outsourcing
project, and to support the business growth ambitions of the HSS Business, a
new component based technical infrastructure was needed to create a more
scalable, flexible and proactive services environment.
PSD were instrumental in staffing most of the projects within
that very first strategic development of HSS. Since then, we have worked
closely with their change and technology teams, building an unrivalled
understanding of their requirements and helping them to staff a number of
programmes/projects with both business and technology specialists.
Programmes/projects we have recruited for include trade processing,
corporate actions automation, funds data administration, regulatory projects,
client on-boarding, transfer agency, derivatives operations and pricing,
reconciliations, fund accounting, creation of a money market fund service,
cash management, performance measurement and risk management.
Over the past 9 years we have placed more than 45
contract/interim resources, providing skills in programme/project management,
business analysis, testing and application development. These resources have
combined both subject matter expertise in the fund services/asset management
business, as well as knowledge of a range of leading vendor technologies.
"Geoff, in case you didn't hear, while you were away we won the 'Best
Transaction/Wholesale Banking Initiative' at the Banking Technology Awards for
our Middle-Office Programme. A great achievement and I guess, having so many
PSD contractors here, it's something you helped us to achieve, so thank you!"
