The partners and their teams at Sequantis have been designing decision-support and reporting tools since the creation of the company. They have vast experience of functional architecture and project management support. 2011 marked a turning point in their activities with the release online of the Insight software application for institutional investors such as insurance companies, “Mutuelles”, retirement funds, social welfare protection funds, etc.).
Insight enabled the company to develop a comprehensive asset servicing business based on position keeping system. A few years after extending its line-up of services, Sequantis further diversified its client base to include asset management companies.
In 2017, Sequantis took the decision to set up two subsidiary companies, Sequantis Invest and Sequantis LT (“Look-Through”), each serving a specialist client segment.
Sequantis Invest works with institutional investors, offering them its Insight service; Sequantis LT focuses on assisting asset management companies to meet inherited regulation compliance obligations in relation to their clients as well as regulations governing their own activities. These are regulatory environments that demand large volumes of diverse reports.
