Located in Bath, U.K., Altus‘ suite of products and market penetration adds to Equisoft’s product portfolio and expands its presence within the financial services space with a transaction platform for pension administrators and asset managers.

These include investment portfolio transfers, pension fund trading, pension payroll and tax reporting.” added Mr. Romero.

”As we got to know Equisoft’s team, we became increasingly confident this would be a perfect marriage of two technology firms, both committed to transforming financial services with quality software and solutions, and sharing the benefits across clients, staff and communities,” added Altus co-founder and Managing Director, Kevin Okell. ”Given our substantial recent investment in UK Fintech startup Finscape, a business analytics platform for the investment industry, Altus was looking for a partner who understood its enormous potential and the critical role it could play in the investment value chain.
