Mortgage Provider : Security Controls Assessment and Roadmap


Our client, a mortgage platform provider requested Broadgate to assist with the review of their cyber security operations.

The organisation was growing rapidly in terms of clients and operations and needed a level of maturity that was appropriate for the increased business.


Having looked at the challenges, Broadgate carried out an operational review against the cyber security benchmark which in this case was Cyber Essentials. Any gaps in the processes or policies were identified, assessed, and reviewed with the client team.

A roadmap was defined to remediate the gaps.We also carried out a high-level review of the security stack supporting the business.

Having remediated any issues we assisted with completion of the Cyber Essentials security assessment.


Improved information security risk management and governance processes.

Established a risk framework and roadmap to further improve security posture.

Assisted with the assessment process to ensure the client achieved Cyber Essentials certification.

Asset Manager : Investment Accounting Platform Selection


Our client, an FTSE 250 Asset Manager, contacted Broadgate to assist with the identification and selection of an appropriate platform for their investment accounting.

They had two challenges, the first being the suitability of the previous platform and the second being that they wanted to have a new product that serviced all of their asset classes.


Having looked at the challenges, Broadgate ran an operating model assessment to understand the key requirements of their different asset types, together with the data requirements, both historical and future.

We identified a shortlist of potential candidates, including full outsourcing, and then reduced it to a smaller number which was included in a selection process.

We ran a light tender together with interactive demos with the business users of the potential new system.


A new platform was selected that met all of the requirements, was cloud-based, and also provided a rich set of data analytic capabilities to deliver future benefits.

From a business case perspective, the new system saved a c.£500k per annum in terms of license costs and other ancillary products and exchange connectivity.

Through robust transition planning, it was one of the smoothest implementations our client had ever experienced.
