SS&C Technologies has been appointed by Eurizon SLJ Capital, the London-based asset manager of Italy’s Eurizon, to provide global transfer agency and shareholder services for two new UK funds.
The asset manager will leverage Global Investor & Distribution Solutions (GIDS), SS&C’s flagship investor services platform, to support the launch of the two funds with €61 million of assets.
According to the tech giant, the platform will provide data-driven operational insights, real-time transparency oversight, intelligent automation, and state-of-the-art digital tools to the funds.
“When evaluating our choices, we were most impressed with the strength of SS&C’s superior global transfer agency offering,” said Mirko Andrea Sturmann, chief operating officer at SS&C. “SS&C’s GIDS enables us to deliver consistently high-quality service across jurisdictions in which our funds operate. We look forward to leveraging the embedded operational insights, intelligent automation and real-time oversight to grow our business.”
Over the past few years, SS&C has established itself as the largest global transfer agency provider, servicing more than 55 million investors across the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Luxembourg, Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore.
Following the launch of GIDS last year, SS&C has won several high-profile transfer agency mandates from the likes of Aberdeen Standard Investments, Davis Advisors and Janus Henderson. In May, the vendor also unveiled a revamped cloud-based recordkeeping operating platform for buy-side firms.
“In today’s global environment, investors worldwide expect access to quality digital tools and insights. SS&C’s breadth and depth of expertise support a consistent investor and distributor experience, regardless of jurisdiction,” said Nick Wright, head of GIDS, SS&C Technologies.
