DekaBank implementiert Asset Arena Compliance von SunGard mit UCITS III-Regeln für Deutschland und Luxemburg

Diese Funktionalitätserweiterung der Pre-Trade-Complianceprüfung um UCITS III-Produkte und -Finanzinstrumente in Deutschland und Luxemburg bei der Deka verbucht die Sungard als Erfolg für ihre Asset Arena Produktgruppe.

Wie es im Front-Office-Bereich der Deka weitergeht, war seit der Entscheidung für SimCorp im Back-Office-Bereich schon spannend - nach dem Beschluss der Auslagerung kann hier sicher weiter spekuliert werden.

SGSS names new head of fund distribution services

This was pretty much foreseeable after the acquisition of EFS by Société Générale 2 years ago: my 3 former colleagues (Rautenberg, Lux, Jeandey) and partners of EFS have left. Pascal Bérichel has taken over the CEO role and replaces Gert Rautenberg.

Update 8th of August 2008: Gert Rautenberg has joined Brown Brothers Harriman as a managing director responsible for the firm's transfer agency product, which supports globally distributed fund ranges that are domiciled in Luxembourg, Ireland, Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands and the Cayman Islands. Prior to joining BBH in Luxembourg, Rautenberg was head of transfer agency and shareholder services for Société Générale Securities Services. Rautenberg was one of the founders and chief executive of European Fund Services, which was established in 2000 in Luxembourg as an outsourcing and service platform for the European investment fund industry and was subsequently acquired by Société Générale in 2006.
