Banks eye the final frontier: private equity
(Vocus) December 3, 2009
SunGard has been named Software Provider of the Year by Private Equity News at their annual Awards for Excellence in Advisory Services. The award was won for SunGard’s Investran, a private equity solution that has been described as the industry standard platform for private equity.*
The awards were created to recognize the successes of firms providing private equity advisory services. A panel of senior institutional investors, advisors, financiers and private equity practitioners voted for firms who achieved high standards of innovation and excellence in their field. SunGard’s Investran was selected from a shortlist of five nominees in the Software Provider of the Year category.
Emanuel Mond, president of SunGard’s alternative investments business, commented: “Despite a challenging year for many in this industry, SunGard’s Investran has weathered the storm well. This independent award acknowledges SunGard’s commitment to Investran’s expanding global customer base and the continuing development of the solution. The award comes on the back of the launch earlier this year of Investran version 6.0, a Web-based customer relationship management solution designed specifically for private equity and other alternative asset managers.”
