SunGard Acquires Pilot Software from TOBAM

Tuesday, January 10, 2012

Yves Choueifaty
Opalesque Industry Update - SunGard has acquired the Pilot solution from TOBAM, a Paris, France-based asset management firm. The acquisition, the terms of which were not disclosed, is not expected to have a material impact on SunGard’s financial results.

The Pilot solution, built and used by TOBAM as its decision support solution for the fund’s principals, is complementary to SunGard’s Asset Arena solution suite, which supports the core functions of the asset management industry including investment management, investment operations and investor servicing.

Yves Choueifaty, president of TOBAM, said, “Regulators and investors continue to demand greater transparency and robust operations from asset management firms. As a result, small-to-mid-sized asset managers are further faced with cost pressures and competition from larger firms. We developed the Pilot solution to help us service high demand clients with increased transparency and reliability. We are proud that these features have been recognized by SunGard.”

Martin Boyd, president of SunGard’s asset management business, said, “SunGard has chosen to acquire Pilot, a comprehensive solution developed and used by portfolio managers, from which to build our solutions for smaller asset managers. We will leverage our innovative technology infrastructure and development framework, rich solutions portfolio and quality assurance testing to further evolve Pilot for this customer base.” Corporate website:: Source
