About IMP Consulting
IMP Consulting, initially known as Implementation Management
Professionals, was established in 2004 to help investment management
firms derive maximum value from their trading and compliance systems.
Recognizing that poor performance by a trading, compliance or portfolio
management system was typically the result of an inadequate
implementation, founder Jane Stabile assembled a team of consultants
that includes former portfolio managers and traders, developers, and
implementation and compliance experts from a number of market-leading
vendors in the industry.
The IMP method applies practical, hands-on experience to optimizing
commercially available tools --supplementing the process with custom
applications where necessary -- to help asset managers lower their
costs, control risk, and improve straight-through-processing rates. IMP
also enables large asset managers to focus on their core competencies,
control costs, and scale quickly to meet market demand by assisting
those firms with middle-office streamlining and outsourcing.
