The Arcesium platform, including its sophisticated treasury functionality was designed, built, and tested by the sophisticated professionals within the D.E. Shaw Group, a global investment and technology development firm. Arcesium deeply engages their customers, assigning each a dedicated technical relationship manager to assist with architectural design and provide expert advice, whether it is about responding to a new regulatory requirement, implementing a new line of business, or overseeing a substantial increase in trading volume. Dougherty proceeds to give an instance of how Arcesium’s solutions helped a client save millions on the cost of trading. The client approached Arcesium seeking to implement an Omnibus account structure to support a multi-manager investment program. By implementing Arcesium’s platform, the client was able to seamlessly transition to this Omnibus-structure approach that allowed them to trade much more efficiently and in a cost-effective manner.
In the near term, Arcesium is focusing on expanding its platform, while at the same time, offering clients more modular solutions that meet the emerging and ever-changing needs of customers and prospects. They are continuing to invest significantly in data security to stay at the forefront of client protection. “It is important to know where your business is headed and if you will be able to handle it at the absolute highest level of complexity. Having a strategy in place and knowing what makes sense for you and your firm is critical,” wraps up Dougherty.
