JLT Employee Benefits (JLT EB) has selected the Tercero investment management platform from Third Financial Software. JLT EB received inflows of over £2bn in 2013 and this front to middle office solution will support JLT EB’s rapid growth.
Darryn Lake, Chief Investment Officer, JLT Employee Benefits, commented:
“Tercero meets our requirements for excellent reporting, an investor portal and compliance. Tercero’s ability to provide reports and information on multiple devices, such as smart phones and tablets was a particularly important aspect of the selection criteria.”
Stewart Foster, Chief Executive Officer, Third Financial, said:
“With Tercero’s hosted solution, the system offered the key to strong customer service and data security, as well as a reduction in time spent on IT issues and upkeep, therefore allowing JLT Investment Management to focus on investment performance, growth, client servicing and delivery.
“With its modern technology, single database, front to back office capability and ‘mobile’ delivery, the Tercero software platform is fast becoming the system of choice for investment managers across the UK and Channel Islands. We are delighted to have added JLT Investment Management to our growing list of clients.”
