SS&C Technologies (NASDAQ: SSNC) said that Sunstate Bank, headquartered in Miami, Florida, has selected Lightning, SS&C´s full-service capital markets SaaS solution to support fixed income trading, funding and safekeeping services.
In order to grow its investment and safekeeping business and further enhance the services it provides to private banking clients, Sunstate needed a low cost, easy-to-implement solution that would allow staff to focus on business growth rather than administration. SS&C´s Lightning will help Sunstate expand this area of its business while keeping costs to a minimum.
Sunstate has licensed SS&C´s Lightning Trading, Funding, Safekeeping, DDA General Ledger and Web Portal modules and will benefit from a solution that links front, middle and back office processes. Lightning´s information portal will also help to streamline communications particularly for clients based in Latin and South America.
