Advised ValueLink on its sale to SunGard
SunGard Data Systems Inc. (“SunGard”) have announced its acquisition of 100% of the share capital of ValueLink Information Services Limited (“ValueLink”).
ValueLink collects and consolidates pricing and corporate actions data from numerous sources, and performs six levels of quality checking, including inter-vendor and client-specific price analyses. Investment managers and fund administrators rely on the resulting validated data to help meet their requirements for data transparency, operational efficiency and valuation accuracy.
The acquisition will extend SunGard’s Asset Arena suite of investment management solutions (which comprises accounting and operational support for mutual funds worldwide) to include robust validation of security pricing and corporate actions data.
ValueLink’s customers will benefit from SunGard’s scale, and its understanding of the full cycle of investment operations, with SunGard’s global customers having access to ValueLink’s high-quality services.
