Curo Fund Services, South Africa’s largest third-party administrator, has gone live with Temenos Multifonds Global Accounting platform, completing the first phase migration of funds from its five legacy systems to a single instance of Temenos’ funds administration platform.

Barri Maggott, CEO, Curo Fund Services, said: “We are delighted to complete the first migration of funds to the Temenos platform. Temenos’ single, scalable platform delivers cost-efficiency benefits and provides the agility and flexibility we need to deliver a best-in-class service to our clients.”

“With Temenos technology, we can more efficiently support our clients’ key asset servicing, position keeping, valuation and accounting functions. We can also support their rapid pace of product evolution to bring timely, creative investment offerings to their markets. In the fast-paced investment industry this gives Curo and our clients a competitive edge.”

The move to Temenos’ platform has transformed Curo’s operating model by simplifying its architecture and enabling more automated exception-based processing to increase efficiencies, reduce costs and open up new opportunities for growth.

Curo provides investment operations and fund accounting services to life companies, asset managers and multi-managers. It employs 300 people and services 3,000 funds with assets under administration of more than $150bn.

Its clients include Sanlam and Old Mutual, South Africa’s largest asset managers.

With Temenos’ platform, Curo is able to deliver a seamless back office service with a higher degree of automation and straight through processing.

This reduces risk and cost by reducing human processing and enables Curo to deliver a best-in class service to clients with automated information flows between the administrator and asset managers.

Having successfully completed a first phase migration of funds, Curo expects to transition all 3,000 funds to the Temenos platform during 2021.

Temenos’ platform has proved it can easily scale to meet the needs of Curo’s large multi-client fund base. It has also demonstrated it supports requirements specific to the South African market, including complex life and pension portfolio structures and reporting; market specific requirements for asset classes such as bonds and swaps; and South Africa tax reporting and regulatory reporting.

Curo is now looking ahead at international opportunities. Operating its business on Temenos Multifonds Global Accounting gives Curo the agility to expand geographically and support its local clients that operate in international markets.

Oded Weiss, Managing Director, Temenos, said: “We are delighted the largest fund administrator in South Africa is now live on the Temenos platform. Temenos is trusted by leading fund administrators and asset management firms around the world to administer, service and value assets for their global client base. Curo is building a world-class fund administration service and we are proud to support them as they continue to innovate and expand their offering on our platform.”
