Seqvoia opens office in London
Seqvoia is opening its new UK office on 4 October 2021. The Luxembourg-based organization is a technology leader helping asset managers addressing the increasing challenges of product lifecycle management.
These challenges are increasing due to growing product diversity and an ever more complex web of regulation. Seqvoia acquired a UK based company last year and has used this entity to grow its presence in the UK.
To help asset managers move ahead on their information journey, Nicolas Buck, CEO of Seqvoia, states “we want to be closer to our customers in London. Many of our key clients have their headquarters here and while we have been active in the UK for several years, we felt it was necessary to increase our physical presence and show a real commitment to the financial community in London. Brexit, and this is a paradox, seems to have strengthened London as a financial center where the big decisions are being taken. These decisions impact both the nature of the products, their domicile and the chosen providers to support the value chain.”
“The business-as-usual approach, especially within the asset management industry, is no longer sufficient to remain competitive. Companies need to fundamentally rethink their data operating model and see themselves as part of a larger financial (data) ecosystem, connecting their organizations to a diverse network of players spanning several specializations and locations to streamline the value chain”, concludes Nicolas Buck.
