SimCorp, a leading provider of investment management solutions and services for the global financial services industry, today announced that Fédéris Gestion d’Actifs has selected SimCorp Dimension as its new investment management technology platform.

Fédéris Gestion d’Actifs, founded in 2003, is the asset management subsidiary of group Malakoff Médéric.

By using a single, integrated software solution the front office stakeholders will, among other things, gain access to real time information including investment accounting, key risk and performance indicators and non-financial security ratings presented in an intuitive, customizable interface.

“It is important for Fédéris Gestion d’Actifs to be equipped with a modern and scalable platform that is able to grow at the same pace as our business. We were very much looking for a business partner to help us to drive and reinforce our excellence in mastering risks and we believe that SimCorp can play this role,” said Anne Courrier, Managing Director at Fédéris Gestion d’Actifs.

Emmanuel Colson, Managing Director at SimCorp France said “We are very pleased to welcome Fédéris Gestion d’Actifs into our global client community. We will actively leverage our combined front office and IBOR solution experiences to ensure Fédéris Gestion d’Actifs meet their strategic objectives by capturing global growth, maximizing operational efficiency and best navigating regulation. Fédéris Gestion d’Actifs will also actively benefit from our massive R&D investment especially in the front office space.”
