The tool allows economists and portfolio managers at Aviva Investors to confidently share “live” charts with each other, knowing that everyone will be seeing the same data at some point. The Macrobond Viewer has proven to be particularly useful for portfolio managers monitoring key positions.
Sharing and analyzing large amounts of data and charts between multiple teams can be difficult for large organizations. Constantly updating information and models can quickly lead to loss of version control and worsen inefficiencies. Knowing that everyone has the same up-to-date information across the organization has eliminated this tedious process.
To foster better collaboration within the company, Aviva Investors asked Macrobond to develop a solution, which resulted in Macrobond Viewer.
Michael Grady, Head of Investment Strategy and Chief Economist at Aviva Investors, said: “What really was a game-changer for us was how we were able to engage the portfolio management teams. This has enabled us to obtain this “single source of truth” and because it is live we have the confidence that we know that we are reviewing the most recent information. It really matters when you are trying to make those investment decisions.
Grady added, “One of the biggest advantages that Macrobond offers to someone like me who undertakes research and analysis, is the incredible gain in efficiency over using other type of software packages. spreadsheet. I see it with all the new hires that come into my team who may have never encountered the product before. They just see how efficient they can be.
Howard Rees, Commercial Director of Macrobond, said: “Listening and acting on feedback has always been at the heart of our success. In fact, partnering with a key customer to take on a workflow challenge that they saw as a natural next step. It was a great pleasure working with Michael and the guys at Aviva, realizing their vision of bringing better collaboration and increased efficiency to their teams. We are extremely pleased that we can now provide Macrobond Viewer to all of our customers so that they too can collaborate more effectively with their teams.
