Bloomberg Onboards More Than 100 Buy-Side Firms Globally in 12 Months


All implementations were successfully completed remotely during the pandemic.


Bloomberg has announced that more than 100 clients globally have successfully implemented its Buy-Side Solutions over the past year, between March 2020 and 2021. During the 12-month period, all implementations were completed remotely due to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions. Bloomberg’s Buy-Side Solutions include its Asset & Investment Manager (AIM) and PORT Enterprise solutions, which enable investors to more efficiently navigate volatile markets and an evolving global regulatory environment.

Clients were onboarded across the Americas, EMEA and APAC, and include Lombard Odier Asset Management, Union Investment,  Global X Japan and Harvest Fund Management, among others.

Bloomberg’s global implementation teams worked in partnership with client firms to establish the necessary connectivity and integration, overcoming challenges presented by the remote work environment. Clients experienced a seamless transition to Bloomberg’s Buy-Side Solutions with minimal impact to their workflows.

“As the buy-side continues to navigate the broad impact of the disruption caused by COVID-19, resilient technology solutions and operating models are crucial,” said Ian Peckett, Global Head of Buy-Side Solutions at Bloomberg. “During the last year, we have provided our clients with extensive support to help them manage the implementation process remotely.
