Bill Stone: SS&C 35th Anniversary and Evolution of Asset Management

As the industry has grown and matured over the last 35 years, SS&C has partnered with asset managers throughout the journey. Bill Stone founded SS&C in 1986 with four employees, focusing on enabling asset managers to manage their books electronically. Today, the company has around 25,000 employees and more than 100 offices, serving 18,000 customers across the financial and healthcare industries. SS&C owns and operates the entire technology stack encompassing investment accounting, front-to-back-office operations, performance measurement, risk analytics, regulatory reporting, and healthcare information processes.

This year, as SS&C celebrates its 35th anniversary, SS&C is also celebrating record growth. IDC recently named SS&C the fourth largest FinTech company by revenue on the IDC FinTech 100 list. This recognition is a significant achievement, especially for Bill, who famously started the company with personal savings of just $20,000.

Bill recently sat down with ETF Express' Beverly Chandler to discuss the evolution of the asset management industry, technology's role, and how SS&C has adapted to the latest changes in the financial services ecosystem. Watch his interview here:        


As SS&C continues to expand our range of services and optimize operations for businesses across our customer ecosystem, we will be rolling out a special Executive Spotlight series to focus on the talent that makes that growth possible. We'll interview long-time SS&C employees about their business and personal development at the company, what inspires them, and what excites them about the future. Stay tuned for updates in the coming weeks and subscribe to our eBriefing.
