Barclays Global Investors Select Asset Control for Global Data Management
San Francisco-based Barclays Global Investors (BGI) has selected Asset Control’s product, AC Plus, as their central data repository for reference data and time series data management worldwide. A global implementation will commence in January 2006. AC Plus will be configured to BGI’s business requirements, managing data from a large number of external and internal data sources to include equity, fixed income and research data. AC Plus will consolidate the management of time series data and reference data, resulting in information to be distributed to many diverse applications such as BGI’s trading systems, portfolio management systems and research systems.
