Client snapshot

  • Ridgeway Investment Management is a financial services organisation
  • Serves both large institutional and high-net-worth individual clients out of the UK and the British Virgin Islands (BVI)


Ridgeway Investment Management was looking for a robust, modern solution that would allow its growing team to operate globally in a highly secure and collaborative environment. It wanted to ensure its business applications and data would be securely delivered to its users in any global location aligning the balance between data security and user experience.


Ridgeway Investment Management chose Lanware’s flagship service Finance Forward 365. Built entirely on the Microsoft Cloud, the Lanware service includes a fully managed Windows Virtual Desktop, Office 365 and Microsoft Teams for unified collaboration with compliant recording from Verint. The Azure platform integrates closely with Ridgeway Investment Management’s third-party custodian provider and enables secure data exchange.

The scalable service enables Ridgeway Investment Management to operate globally without the need to deploy any on-premises technology. Rigorous cloud security controls combined with Lanware’s security operations centre and zero trust model protect against cyber threats and ensure the firm can adhere to strict regulatory requirements. Ridgeway Investment Management also benefits from Lanware’s 24/7 Service Desk providing fast proactive end-user support.

“It is an exciting time in the evolution of Ridgway Investment Management and it is right that we are partnering with a firm that focuses on financial services. This gives us confidence that Lanware understands where we are in our journey and will be supportive as we navigate the challenges ahead. Lanware has been incredibly responsive and helpful from the beginning. Their pro-business approach and can-do attitude have really come across. And as we are far from being experts in technology, we take great comfort in the knowledge that Lanware can provide the support we need. We are very much looking forward to working with Lanware over the coming years.”
