Helping Clients Solve their Business Challenges

As an SMA manager managing over 2000 individual accounts, Wasmer, Schroeder & Company sought technology to enhance processes between their front and middle office teams while decreasing administrative overhead.

Barings, with investments under multiple strategies, 100 asset types, and different currencies managed on multiple back-office administration systems, wanted to improve firm-wide position reporting for risk management.

NewStar needed a solution that provided the ability to easily search information on past deals and companies within designated parameters, and to isolate companies within any segment of the deal process.

In addition to the Data Warehouse and Performance Attribution solutions, this client was looking to implement an enterprise-class front office system that consolidates all data for the investment process and streamlines reporting.

This middle market lender sought a Direct Lending solution that would capture pricing grid changes, closing stat sheets, deal bank group and syndicate tracking processes as well as model complex credit analyses with validations, auditing and approvals.

A Global Investment Manager, focused on multiple asset classes needed a system that provides a consolidated view of their holdings across multiple back office systems, allowing portfolio managers to analyze and report whatever investment data they need.

At Black Mountain, we’ve implemented our own solution to manage our company’s internal operational processes, including sales pipeline management, human resources, project management, invoicing, time-tracking, etc.

Black Mountain’s Integrated Platform

Unlike custom-built or competitors’ software, Black Mountain offers low-risk and rapid deployment of fully supported solutions for all asset classes with the flexibility to conform, adapt, and grow with changing company, Strategy, and regulatory needs.
