Fiera Capital adopts Eagle Investment Systems' enterprise platform

Tools

Fiera Capital Corporation, the Canadian investment management firm with approximately $55 billion in assets under management, will implement Eagle Investment Systems' solutions throughout its enterprise.

Fiera Capital's relationship with Eagle was extended through the acquisition of long-time Eagle client, Natcan Investment Management. Fiera Capital is integrating Natcan's deployment of Eagle's data management solution, performance measurement solution, and multi-lingual portal to its current operational infrastructure.  The firm is also adding $30 billion in assets to the Eagle platform while migrating to Eagle ACCESSSM, Eagle's secure private cloud.

Fiera Capital announced its acquisition of Natcan in April 2012, making the firm one of the largest independent asset managers in Canada. Natcan has been an Eagle client since 2005.

"In all of our acquisitions, we look to create efficiencies and find cost-savings by leveraging the best providers and services available," said Robert Trepanier , senior vice president, Operations and Information Technology, Fiera Capital.

Trepanier adds that, "In Natcan's case, we saw an opportunity to apply its current data management and performance measurement solutions to our entire company, thereby reducing multi-vendor complexity and saving time and money. Our adoption of Eagle's software and migration to the cloud will enable us to establish a firm-wide, state-of-the-art technology solution that is secure, universal and will help us to integrate future acquisitions into our centralized platform much more easily and efficiently."   

Eagle Investment Systems is a subsidiary of BNY Mellon.
