Performance-Attribution Spending Perks Up

Spending on modules to improve performance of portfolio systems is steadily rising. According to a study of seven large vendors - including DST International, SunGard and Indata - by Boston-based research and consulting firm Celent Communications, total new spending for performance modules with attribution for 2004 is estimated at $48.3 million.
