Mn Services (Holland), Swissca (Switzerland) and the Pohjola Group Oyj (Finland) are all set to implement SimCorp’s TMS2000. Mn Services, the first Dutch business to purchase SimCorp’s solution, provides investment management and administration of insurance and collective pensions for several Dutch institutional clients. Mn Services’ TMS2000 installation will be implemented as a fully integrated solution encompassing portfolio and treasury management operations in the front, middle and back offices. Swissca is a leading Swiss and European provider of financial and consulting services to institutional clients in investment funds, asset management, international securities trading, pensions and insurance. Replacing an existing suite of portfolio management systems, the new TMS2000 solution will provide Swissca with broad instrument coverage in a full straight through processing environment, again for 50 users in front, middle and back offices. The Finnish Pohjola Group Oyj has selected SimCorp’s TMS2000 system for its asset management operation, Pohjola Asset Management.
