Publicis Sapient and BTPSM create a benchmark for the pensions industry
By Joy Dumasia
Publicis Sapient, the global digital transformation consultancy, partnered with BT Pension Scheme, the UK’s largest private-sector pension fund, to improve the management of its assets/liabilities by building a holistic cloud-native technology platform uniquely suited for the pensions industry that helps reduce costs, improve investment management information and provide growth potential.
The industry is going through a period of transformative change, and technology is transforming the pensions market. As a strategic partner to BTPSM, Publicis Sapient built a new cloud-native technology platform and an entirely new tech ecosystem designed to modernise business processes and enrich user experience.
This new tech landscape is centred around a tailor-made investment management platform that promotes speed, efficiency, flexibility, and control by automating and making data/tools available to all key stakeholders so they can drill down to the lowest level to analyse variances, facilitate insights into detailed risk exposure and model future “what if scenarios” to better design their portfolio.
The end-to-end transformation of BT Pension Scheme Management’s (BTPSM) funding and fiduciary services sets a new benchmark in investment management for the entire pensions industry. This innovative new platform gives BTPSM greater connectedness, operational robustness and efficiency.
Sudeepto Mukherjee, Head of Financial Services, Publicis Sapient, said: “When we started on the transformation journey, it was clear there was a lack of good market products designed to meet the unique investment needs of the pension industry. By leveraging modern technologies, together we have not only reduced BTPSM’s operational risk but also created a world-leading investment platform that allows their investment office to manage the assets and liabilities of their members more efficiently.”
Kevin Samborn, Chief Technology Officer, BTPSM, said: “The new platform has changed the way we manage data, enabling us to focus on more value-added research and analyses. We will be able to rapidly source data from our administration platform and quickly model it in our investment platform.”
