Fund manager future proofs IT for another three years

Extends Garradin software contract

One of Australia's largest ethical fund managers, Hunter Hall Investment Management Limited, has extended its contract with Bravura Solutions for a further three years.

Bravura is a supplier of wealth management applications and professional services and Hunter Hall initially licensed the Garradin software in September 2002.

Hunter Hall will continue to use a variety of its integrated modules across the company including unit pricing, unit registry performance and attribution analysis, and call centre.

The Garradin Portfolio is a multi-currency investment management system with integrated asset management, registry and tax management functions.

As Hunter Hall's keyadministration system for investment management, it covers everything from front to back office.

Bravura CEO and director, Simon Woodfull, said the system has also been 'future proofed', which allows the introduction of new types of instruments and products, while ensuring that minimal customisation is required.

"We continually improve our software in conjunction with our clients and we are proud of the longterm relationships that result from this focus," he said.

Bravura provides solutions to more than 180 financial institutions and has 650 staff.

More than 18 million accounts are administered on Bravura software, with more than US$1 trillion in funds under management globally.
