Idea Group are financial services and technology consultants with over 20 years experience of helping to create innovative solutions, whilst living up to our vision of "Efficiency  Through Ingenuity". After many years of consulting to the investment management sector, we were asked to help lead an industry initiative to help bring higher automation levels to UK Pension Funds, which would become the market changing ViaNova group of which we are still co-Chair today. The success of this initiative lead to Idea Group being asked by SWIFT to help lead similar initiatives in the hedge fund world (SHarP) and in the Australian domestic funds community.

Our expertise in bringing groups of industry participants together, analysing the business flows to be addressed, designing the messaging standards to be applied, and then ensuring that this can all be practically applied through the effective use of technology is unparalleled. For this reason, the alternative funds industry also asked us to revisit the possibility of automating their business processes, through an initiative that is now known as GAIA. We look forward to sharing our expertise with as broad a group of market participants as possible.
