On August 1, 2019, SimCorp finalized the acquisition of AIM Software. The acquisition strengthens SimCorp’s strategic position in the market, with a market leading data management solution complementary to SimCorp’s existing front to back offering.
AIM Software is a leading provider of data management solutions with a specialized focus on the buy-side and a long-standing partner to SimCorp. AIM Software has around 75 employees, with offices in Vienna, London and New York. Additionally, it has 40 people with a third-party service provider.
The acquisition will strengthen SimCorp’s strategic position and competitiveness in the market. Data management is an area of growing importance to buy side firms and increasingly central to any investment manager’s operational foundation. Also, it is often a key consideration in system selection processes. AIM Software’s market-leading solution will provide SimCorp with an even stronger value proposition, adding new capabilities in an area naturally linked to its existing front-to-back offering.
Klaus Holse, CEO of SimCorp, comments:“We are excited to welcome AIM’s team to the SimCorp family and AIM’s clients to our global client community. AIM’s market-leading data management solution, GAIN, is a valuable addition to our portfolio, supplementing our offering in an area of strategic importance to our clients”
Following the acquisition, AIM Software will be fully integrated into SimCorp. Its product GAIN will be renamed SimCorp Gain and become a core component of SimCorp’s future data management offering.
