AVIATe - Assessment of Value Intelligent Automation Technology

Powered by FundSense

AVIATe is the Intelligent Automation solution from FundSense and ISC that supports
a “best practice”, operationally efficient approach to AoV, that enables firms to
improve governance, reduce risk and shorten the reporting cycle by up to 50%.

The Assessment of Value Challenge​

Assessment of Value is integral to product governance. It requires timely and accurate information to be assembled from across the organisation and presented clearly to allow the asset manager, fund boards and regulator to demonstrate “value for money”.

Pulling this information together can be a significant overhead for Operational and Product teams and impact the ability of an asset manager to make informed assessments, take corrective action and publicly explain “value” decisions.

AVIATe is an intelligent workflow solution that supports a “best practice”, operationally efficient approach to Assessment of Value (AoV) that improves governance and reduces risk.

Resolving the Challenge

Combining the best of FundSense technology and ISC’s Transformation & Regulatory expertise, AVIATe manages the entire Value Assessment Report process - from data gathering and sign-off to report generation and dissemination.

AVIATe is an intelligent workflow solution that supports a “best practice”, operationally efficient approach to Assessment of Value (AoV) that improves governance and reduces risk.
