JHC launches Element platform for wealth and investment managers


JHC, a provider of software and services to the wealth and investment management industries, has launched Element, a brand new application platform for wealth and investment managers.

Element is built from a range of modern technologies and is the foundation for JHC’s next generation product suite, giving investment firms greatly enhanced productivity and client engagement tools. Solutions delivered on Element enable investment professionals and their clients to easily and securely access the exact information and tools they need anywhere anytime.
Based on research undertaken across the market, the new platform is designed to support the future needs of wealth managers and investors. Element provides JHC with the framework to rapidly respond to its customers’ requirements and deliver frequent product enhancements with assured quality. This flexibility enables firms to embrace new business opportunities and address regulatory change without being constrained by the lengthy delivery times often associated with legacy software solutions.
“We continue to invest significantly in research and development to ensure that JHC retains its position as the leading wealth management solutions provider, and I am very proud that we can now share Element with our clients and the industry,” says John Blackman, Chief Executive Officer of JHC. “Two years of dedicated technical excellence has delivered an extremely robust and dynamic platform that will support our clients’ needs and our own innovation over the years to come. I am extremely excited about Element and the new products we have in the pipeline.”
Element works with the highly established FIGARO solution, serving the needs of a broad range of investment firms and business models from large discretionary wealth managers, and platform providers, through to execution only stockbrokers. In addition Element has been designed from the outset to support the direct-to-consumer (D2C) propositions that are rapidly emerging as a result of new regulations and a changing investment landscape.
“Element’s use of HTML5 and CSS3 gives a fully responsive user interface which will work seamlessly across mobile devices and desktops. The end product looks fantastic and gives an incredibly powerful yet highly intuitive experience that we are sure will delight our users.” said Ian Haines, Chief Technical Officer at JHC.
“We've put as much effort into the build and test infrastructure as the application framework itself. All Element applications are continuously automatically tested so we know at any point that the product is good to go out the door. In addition, since Element uses new technology all the way down to the database, we can also use it as a framework for developing applications for systems other than FIGARO, or for integration projects.”
JHC plans to launch the first new product on Element in the second half of 2015, with additional products to be released in 2016. Further details will be released in July.
