Aberdeen Asset Management
Aberdeen Asset Management is one of Europe’s largest public, pure-play asset management groups, serving institutional investors such as insurance companies, pension funds, treasuries, banks, sovereign wealth funds, family offices and foundations. In 2014 Aberdeen Asset Management acquired The Scottish Widows Investment Partnership (SWIP) from Lloyds Banking Group.
As in other financial institutions, SWIP utilises a number of complex connected end user computing processes, including market feeds owned by Lloyds, which needed decoupling from the business following the acquisition. In deploying ClusterSeven technology SWIP de-risked the separation of the businesses and the subsequent migration from Microsoft Office 2003 to Office 2010.
