We’re excited to partner with Temenos on the next phase of our growth journey.”
Oded Weiss, Managing Director – Temenos Multifonds, said:
“We started our investments to localize Temenos Multifonds for Brazil a few years ago. We added functionality to support the local funds according to the CMV 555 regulation and the valuation methods for local financial instruments such as Brazilian fixed income. In addition, we adopted a complete set of regulatory reports for CVM, ANBIMA and Bacen, and incorporated full coverage of local IR and IOF taxes. With all these investments, we are delivering to REAG a market-ready solution for Brazil. In Brazil, Temenos Multifonds is the only platform designed to manage complex fund structures with various share class levels, including share class hedging, which perfectly positions us for the coming regulatory changes expected to be applied to the CVM 555 in the coming months.By adopting Temenos Multifonds, REAG will decrease the burden on its staff while increasing its reach to benefit more families, businesses and investors. We’re delighted that REAG has selected Temenos Multifonds to transform its business, accelerate growth and offer the best solutions to its clients.”
