Business information provider IHS Markit (Nasdaq: INFO) today announced that Partners Group, the EUR62 billion global private markets investment manager, has selected thinkFolio as its cross-asset order management and portfolio modelling system. The platform will be delivered as a managed service with IHS Markit hosting the thinkFolio software in the cloud, managing upgrades and real-time feeds, and executing overnight data loads and start-of-day processes.

Partners Group is also migrating to WSOWeb, the fully-managed syndicated loan portfolio administration and accounting service from IHS Markit. Together, thinkFolio and WSO will deliver a comprehensive loan and credit investment management platform for Partners Group’s traders and portfolio managers.

“Partners Group required a modern, fully managed end-to-end solution for efficient loans, fixed income, equity and FX portfolio management,” said Spiros Giannaros, managing director and head of thinkFolio at IHS Markit. “Together, thinkFolio and WSO provide a unique solution with deep functionality to support the complex and diverse requirements of syndicated loans and other credit markets.”

Partners Group will use thinkFolio for portfolio modelling, compliance and automation of the trading and trade approval processes. The firm also intends to use the cash and foreign exchange management functionality in thinkFolio to automate its treasury activity.
