The Avaloq group, an international leader in integrated and comprehensive wealth management and banking solutions, is today announcing the successful transition of Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management in the UK and its offshore locations to a fully integrated modular software solution to support back, middle and front office functions.
Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management is an award-winning wealth manager committed to providing investors with a broad array of wealth management solutions. Its Investment Professionals manage and administer over £11 billion of assets on behalf of more than 12,000 clients from offices in London, Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man.
The transition to Avaloq provides Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management with complete flexibility to deliver innovative investment solutions and world-class client service, while providing the essential infrastructure to pursue its ambitious growth plans.
“The successful implementation of the Avaloq platform allows us to focus on delivering innovative wealth management solutions and creating long term value for our clients,” said David Esfandi, CEO, Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management (UK). “Avaloq has become a trusted strategic partner and we look forward to ongoing collaboration, as we service growing numbers of discerning wealth management clients in a changing market and regulatory environment.”
