Portfolio Management System

Managing and growing the assets of their institutional and retail customers has become a challenging business for asset managers and brokers globally.

In order to meet the growing demands of their customers and to cope with increasing market and regulatory complexity, asset managers are becoming more specialised in the front office and are optimising their operations around costs and accuracy.

MCI has developed a sophisticated set of tools that supports the administrative functionality of the current JSE accounting system. PortCIS is a portfolio management system which has been developed to assist portfolio managers with the management of their accounts.
