SS&C Eze Supports Early-Stage Japan-based Hedge Funds with Scalable Technology; Welcomes Hiroki Allen as Country Manager

Eze and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Partner to Help Fund Managers Optimize and Grow Firms

As we continue to adjust to a post-pandemic world, many major economies are expected to enter recessions over the next 12 months. According to Nomura Holdings Inc., tightening monetary and fiscal policies and rising cost of living are pushing the global economy into this synchronized slowdown.

The extent of this slowdown, however, will vary from country to country, and Nomura forecasts Japan will have a milder recession compared to Europe and the US due to its delayed reopening and ongoing policy support.

One such policy is the Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG)’s subsidy of middle and back office operations for emerging investment managers. The program, which launched pre-pandemic, aims to revitalize Tokyo’s financial sector and position the city as a leading global financial hub by encouraging investment managers to outsource operations to knowledgeable and reputable solution providers, freeing up more time to focus on their core business and enabling faster and more seamless growth.

SS&C Eze was one of the first global investment technology firms to be accredited as a Qualified Outsourcing Provider by TMG; and we are proud to have maintained our status as a preferred partner since 2019.

With technology that streamlines and optimizes workflows across the organization and co-sourced front-, middle-, and back-office Managed Service solutions, SS&C Eze clients can get their jobs done better and faster. With this newfound efficiency, managers can reallocate time once spent on repetitive and manual processes to higher impact items – ones that deliver more value to clients. And with a wide breadth of flexible and configurable technology and service solutions, SS&C Eze’s offerings are built to scale with firms as they grow and business needs change.

For more than 25 years, SS&C Eze has helped start-up and emerging hedge fund managers set up for long-term growth and success. Throughout this time, we’ve developed a wealth of industry, operational, and workflow insights, and through our signature partnership approach, built and nurtured deep relationships with clients, gathering and acting upon feedback from the front-line.

To continue nurturing our relationship with Japan-based hedge fund managers and ensure SS&C Eze evolves to meet the unique and shifting needs of this market, we are pleased to have recently welcomed Hiroki Allen, our new country manager for Japan. Hiroki has been in the financial and investment technology industry for more than 20 years and has extensive experience working with the Japanese asset management sector with particular expertise in alternative investments.

With Hiroki’s leadership, we look forward to continuing to help Japan-based hedge fund managers optimize operations and grow their businesses with award-winning technology and unparalleled service.
