Ridgeway Investment Management expands to service global institutional clients and selects Lanware as their managed IT and cyber-security partner.

Lanware is proud to be partnering with Ridgeway Investment Management, a financial services organisation serving both large institutional and high net worth individual clients out of the UK and the British Virgin Islands (BVI).

Following a personal recommendation, Ridgeway Investment Management chose Lanware’s flagship service Finance Forward 365 as a robust, modern solution that will allow its growing team to operate globally in a highly secure and collaborative environment.

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 will integrate closely with Ridgeway Investment Management’s third-party custodian provider and enable secure data exchange.

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

James Maltin, Founder of Ridgeway Investment Management said, “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.”

He adds, “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.”

Henry Duncombe, Managing Director Lanware, continues, “We are absolutely delighted to be working with James and the rest of the team at Ridgeway Investment Management. With Finance Forward 365, Ridgeway’s business applications and data will be delivered to their users in any global location striking a balance between data security and user experience.”
