When One Size Doesn’t Always Fit All - The Challenges of Implementing Foreign Trading Systems for Japanese Investors

Timothy Keough
Senior Implementation Manager
Charles River Development

Foreign trading system vendors have come to Japan to find that their out-of-the box product does not always work for the country’s trading community. Their solutions, developed for a global framework, often are ill equipped to deal with challenges specific to Japan. These challenges may include functional gaps, language, appreciation of local project methodologies and client/vendor relationships, as well as Japan’s financial market regulations.

Over the last 10 years, Charles River has successfully implemented its best-of-breed Charles River Investment Management System for a number of domestic and international Japanese investment firms. In this presentation, we will outline our approach to these challenges and how we have provided Japanese firms with an end-to-end, integrated solution that allows them to customize their workflows for their country- and company-specific requirements, among many other things.
