New floor unveiled in nearshore service centre

22nd June 2015, Bucharest: Phi Partners is pleased to announce the completion of the preparations of the 9th floor in the Bucharest managed services centre. The newly refurbished floor in Euro Tower provides an additional 56 delivery desks together with meeting rooms and an executive office. This complements the existing offices on the 6th and 13th floors, with the same state-of-the-art communications and technology infrastructure. The space can be re-configured according to client security requirements, allowing for the quick and flexible ramp-up and ramp-down that Phi Partners is always pleased to offer as part of our managed services.

Euro Tower is a prominent, Class A, modern office fronting one of Bucharest’s main arterial routes, Barbu Vacarescu, and benefitting from a striking design of a glazed, curtain wall façade. The area is within easy reach of the airport and is excellently served by all types of public transport, with Stefan cel Mare metro station (M1) within 3-5 minutes walking distance.

Phi Partners hosts client networking event

London, 19 September 2013 – Phi Partners celebrated the return of Kabs Acheampong as Head of Portfolio Management with a client networking evening of drinks, canapés and pool at Eight Club, Bank.

Phi had exclusive use of the pool area at the club where some of the participants showed that their talents were more suited to the trading floor than the pool table.

The evening was well attended with a mix of old and new faces from Phi’s client base. It was also an valuable opportunity for the internal support team at Phi to meet the company’s expanding community.

Thank you to everyone who attended for making it a very special evening and we hope you will join us at the next event.

Phi Partners to host German Summit user group

London, 18 September, 2013 – Phi Partners will be hosting the forthcoming “German Summit User Group” to be held in Munich on September 26th, 2013. Held three times each year, the meeting provides the opportunity for Summit users to dive into current Summit challenges, keep up-to-date with the latest developments, and network with their peers. Phi Partners joined the programme officially earlier this year, when it was invited to speak at the previous session, based on its unrivalled Summit expertise.

The user groups cover a range of Summit-related topics, ranging from a poll of the current top 10 issues or challenges, through to current projects being run by banks. In addition to these core areas, Phi Partners’ Mike Macfarlane, Partner, delivered a presentation on Testing as a Service, while his colleague and fellow Partner James Radley ran a session on Performance Tuning and Advisory Services. Both of these areas have been identified as key topics, as clients upgrade to the latest versions of Summit, which operate on a Misys service pack model.

The user group comprises 11 of the leading banks in Germany and adjacent countries (Nykredit, Aareal Bank, BayernLB, Commerzbank, Deutsche Finanzagentur, FMS, KfW, MHB, Natixis, PBB and Portigon). Chairman of the group is Jean-Louis Washburn of Nykredit. The host of the event is usually chosen from the group on a rotating basis.

Jean-Louis Washburn commented, “Phi Partners’ involvement in our last session was universally deemed to be a success, and we are delighted that they will be hosting and speaking at this forthcoming user group.”

Following the conclusion of this month’s event, Phi Partners will be taking participants for a well-earned break at Oktoberfest – Germany’s famous beer festival.
