Its tools can support institutions with their processes including portfolio management, risk analysis, investment compliance, client onboarding, communication and reporting, tax, regulatory reporting, financial planning, and compliance reporting, among others.
To support the transaction, Objectway partly financed the deal with the support from UBI Banca and Unicredit.
Unione Fiduciaria managing director Filippo Cappio said, “Unione Fiduciaria has identified in Objectway a solid and reliable partner to pass the baton for the development of the Algorfin business. With this sale, the process of focusing on fiduciary activity, the company’s core business, continues and accelerates. This operation allows Unione Fiduciaria to invest additional resources for expansion and thus continue a path already started several years ago.”
Following this acquisition, Objectway has reached around €75m of annual consolidated revenues.
