SSQ Financial Group in New Technology Partnership with L&T Infotech

L&T Infotech Canada, a global leader in the IT Financial Services industry, today announced that it has been selected by SSQ Financial Group as their wealth management solutions provider.

SSQ Financial Group has replaced their current platform with Unitrax®, L&T Infotech’s proprietary transfer agency recordkeeping system, to support their segregated funds, Private Wealth Management, Equity GIA, and Guaranteed Interest Accounts (GIAs).

About this new technology partnership, L&T Infotech’s Chief Executive Chad Alderson said “Since 1994, our flagship product, Unitrax®, has been enabling fund and insurance companies to manage the administration of their wealth management products. Today, Unitrax® is used by over 200 companies—representing C$650 billion in assets under management. This new alliance with one of Canada’s most prestigious financial institutions further strengthens our reputation as one of the world’s preeminent technology companies.”

This new partnership will result in immediate benefits from increased performance, reliability, and scalability of SSQ Financial Group’s segregated funds and asset allocation platforms, as well as improve time to market for new product launches.

Marc Trépanier, SSQ Financial Group’s Vice President of National Business Development ̶ Individual Insurance and Investment commented: “SSQ has made important gains in growing our business across Canada over the past years. We welcome this new partnership with L&T Infotech and view this transition to a leading administrative platform for our investment products as an opportunity to better support our business development efforts by increasing our service to our business partners and clients.”
