The firm’s say the partnership offers operational efficiencies to insurers, who face low returns and rising tech costs.

“The integration of SimCorp Dimension with State Street Alpha fully addresses what has historically been a fragmented, expensive and time-consuming process across the investment lifecycle,” the firms said.

SimCorp already has a number of partnerships with other assets servicers, who rival State Street. These include in the area of front-to-back office outsourcing.
