Integrated data management and investment management platform will be
delivered on the cloud

IHS Markit (NASDAQ:INFO), a world leader in critical information,
analytics and solutions, today announced that Quilter Investors Limited,
the £17 billion* multi-asset fund manager within the newly listed
Quilter plc, has selected its Enterprise Data Management (EDM)
and investment management (thinkFolio)
solutions. They will be delivered on the AWS Cloud, which will be hosted
and managed by IHS Markit.

"As we set out to enhance efficiency and scalability, we needed to build
a new, modern IT infrastructure capable of supporting our fast-growing
business," said Mitchell Dean, COO/CFO at Quilter Investors. "The team
already had a positive experience of using thinkFolio and the fact that
it can be combined with EDM to deliver an end-to-end platform made it an
attractive option for us. The managed service that IHS Markit offers
means we can hand over the running and maintenance of the platform safe
in the knowledge that we will enjoy continuity of service."

Quilter Investors is using EDM primarily for security and account master
management. Once validated, enriched and aggregated, EDM will distribute
the data to the front office via thinkFolio. As Quilter Investors'
cross-asset OMS/PMS, thinkFolio will provide portfolio modelling,
compliance, cash and FX management and trading. thinkFolio offers the
ability to manage the underlying assets of a multi-asset portfolio on a
look through basis; this functionality is also integrated with the
platform's core modelling and compliance capabilities.

"Asset managers are increasingly looking for trusted partners to deliver
multiple solutions through a managed service," said Spiros
Giannaros
, global head of EDM and thinkFolio at IHS Markit. "We are
looking forward to working with the team at Quilter Investors to deliver
this modern, flexible infrastructure which will play a key role in
supporting the firm's investment requirements and asset class mix."
