Clearwater To Offer Daily Reconciliation And End-Client Reporting To HighMark Capital Management To Further Strengthen Asset Manager's Client Base

BOISE, ID – January 14, 2015 — HighMark Capital Management, Inc., a San Francisco, California-based, SEC-registered investment adviser and wholly owned subsidiary of MUFG Union Bank, N.A., has selected Clearwater Analytics® to provide investment accounting and reporting and data management. Clearwater's web-based platform will allow HighMark to further expand its book of business and provide its clients with best-in-class portfolio reporting.

HighMark has always believed in long-term financial philosophies facilitated by the use of innovative solutions. Its three-pronged approach ties together research, disciplined investment processes, and thorough risk management to provide single and multi-asset investment strategies for retirement plans, public agencies, corporations, and educational institutions through institutional separate accounts, separately managed accounts, collective investment trusts, and sub-advised mutual funds.

As HighMark explored new solutions that could enhance their current processes, they recognized that Clearwater's innovative daily reconciliation technology could add another layer of data for HighMark's clients, without adding more work for portfolio managers.
