Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank (SuMiTB) selects Profile Software

Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank, (SuMiTB) in Japan selected Acumennet to support their Treasury operations across six overseas offices in the United Kingdom, USA, China, Singapore, Hong Kong and Thailand.

Founded in 1925 and headquartered in Tokyo, SuMiTB provides banking and trust services in Japan. SuMiTB offers financial services such as syndicated loans, real estate finance, project finance and other finances. It also provides asset management and real estate management service, as well as consulting services, including M&A advisory and consulting for corporate clients.

The challenge

SuMiTB was looking for a core banking system to replace their legacy system and for a comprehensive Treasury Management Solution that would allow standardisation of processes across the overseas offices with a fully integrated STP platform that would streamline operations between front and back office and eliminate double input. SuMiTB was also looking for a solution with a single common database to facilitate its global system management while overcoming the induced challenges of time zones, volume and confidentiality across offices. SuMiTB is exploring to utilise cloud environment to run the solution for maximising its benefit. Acumennet will be implemented across their overseas offices, in London, New York, Singapore, Bangkok, Hong Kong and Shanghai.

Following a thorough vendor evaluation, SuMiTB selected Acumennet as it supports their set requirements with its front office supporting functions and an extensive range of financial instruments being managed by the system covering the full range of FX, MM, Securities, OTC derivatives and Exchange Traded Derivatives. Valuation of complex instruments can be shared with the back-end for P&L update.

The Implementation

By integrating several dealing platforms currently used by SuMiTB, Acumennet aims at promoting flexibility and operational efficiency. Seamless interfacing will enable real-time imports, ensuring minimum user intervention throughout the deals’ life cycle.
