European investment management firm Sapia Investment Services, a division of Sapia Partners LLP, has partnered with Third Financial Software to offer investment management services to IFA’s and boutique wealth managers.

The partnership will see Third Financial Software provide the Tercero software and IT infrastructure to Sapia, who will offer independent wealth management firms and IFA’s a full platform service, with open architecture dealing, as well as custody and asset servicing.

Sapia Investment Services will also be using the Tercero platform to power its own open market model portfolio platform and to deliver investment management services to independent wealth managers within its own regulatory framework.

This modern, multi-entity system will run on a hosted basis allowing for maximum operational efficiency, resulting in reduced costs to the end user.

Third Financial’s Tercero, will allow Sapia Investment Services to be self sufficient in the running and management of the service offering. IFA’s and wealth managers will benefit from the complete investment management service at a fraction of the price of implementing a similar system independently.

Gerard Grueter, Managing Partner of Sapia Partners LLP commented:

“End users will have access to the full Tercero suite allowing for an ultra modern customer facing solution that includes client reporting tools, a portal feature, plus iPad and smartphone applications. These features will allow for IFA’s and boutique wealth managers to grow their businesses more effectively and efficiently.”

He continues:

“We are delighted to announce that the first client to benefit from the new service is the management team behind Newcastle based, Vertem Asset Management. They have been live for some time now and are already seeing the benefits of the partnership.”

John Dance, CEO of Vertem Asset Management says of the partnership:

“The offering from Sapia and Third Financial has allowed for continued growth, operational efficiency and most importantly client satisfaction. The partnership promises to provide end users with a suitable and reliable system that will allow the possibility for growth to many IFA’s and independent wealth managers.

Stewart Foster, CEO of Third Financial commented: ‘We are delighted that the superior functionality of Tercero which has been gaining ground for some time now, is now available via a fully managed full-service platform. The benefits in terms of operational efficiencies and the improved client experience Sapia will be able to deliver with this new technology provides an opportunity to transform the service model and the bottom-line of their clients.’
