Vancity Investment Management Selects Bloomberg to Streamline Portfolio Management


Bloomberg announced today that Vancity Investment Management, one of the first wealth management firms in Canada to focus on investments that deliver competitive returns while making a positive impact on the world, has adopted PORT Enterprise, Bloomberg’s advanced portfolio and risk analytics solution, along with Bloomberg Data License, the technology that delivers Bloomberg’s data content sets across the enterprise to further streamline its portfolio management operations.

This is the latest expansion to Vancity’s suite of Bloomberg Buy-Side solutions supporting the firm’s investment workflow, adding to their use of Bloomberg AIM, a leading order and investment management system.

PORT Enterprise supports Vancity’s continued growth through enhanced risk oversight for fixed income and equity products using industry-leading risk and attribution models, detailed portfolio analytics, and the ability to further automate reporting.

“Bloomberg’s solutions support our portfolio management needs and allow us to optimize our workflows to support our focus on conscious investments,” said Joe Reid, VP of Wealth Management and Impact Investing at Vancity. “Tools that support our ability to scale and grow our business, and access to the most advanced market risk models enable us to provide our clients with the types of offerings they have come to expect from Vancity.”

Vancity will benefit from PORT Enterprise’s data visualization tools, which provide visibility into portfolio performance and support timely decision making. Additionally, PORT Enterprise’s batch reporting capabilities can be centrally administered with an automated workflow, enabling scalability at every step of the investment lifecycle for easier transition from manual reporting processes.

Vancity will also now be able to use Bloomberg’s Data License content, including reference, pricing and regulatory data with over 50 million securities and more than 15 thousand fields.
