Watson Wheatley Announce Three Recent Overseas Contracts

Watson Wheatley, specialists in data reconciliation solutions, have announced the recent signing of three overseas contracts. Following competitive bidding processes and thorough ‘proof of concept’ projects the iRecs system was chosen to provide comprehensive data reconciliation between internal portfolio accounting systems and prime brokers, custodians and administrators.

The new signings, based in Hong Kong and Southern Europe, mark progress for Watson Wheatley in terms of geographical coverage and validate the recent increase in overseas interest. Furthermore, these clients have opted to use the increasingly popular secure hosting platform created specifically for the iRecs system, allowing new instances of iRecs to be made available for implementation to commence in only a matter of hours.

Tom Wheatley, COO, Watson Wheatley:

“Not only are we excited to announce these new contracts but are pleased to receive very positive feedback on the functionality of the system and the implementation process itself. Importantly two of the three new contracts have already led to further introductions and scheduled proof of concepts with other funds”.
