SS&C Technologies Holdings has launched Global Investor and Distribution Solutions (GIDS), which delivers global transfer agency and investor servicing powered by a single global servicing platform.
The platform provides investors, advisers, and asset managers with data-driven operational insights, real-time transparent oversight, intelligent automation, and state-of-the-art digital tools.

He will focus on strategy, innovation, product development and oversee global client delivery. Wright joined SS&C in 2018 and was previously with State Street and Northern Trust in Europe, the US and Asia.
“I am pleased to unveil GIDS with Nick at the helm,” says Mike Sleightholme, Senior VP and General Manager. “Our clients deserve a more intelligent, value-added approach to global transfer agency. The demand for our solutions is strong. We are committed to investing in tools, data and people to enable an effortless investor and distributor experience, regardless of location.”
SS&C is the largest global transfer agency provider, servicing more than 55 million investors. Investor servicing is offered in many different countries, including the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Luxembourg, Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore. SS&C also services mutual fund structures in many other fund domiciles. GIDS leverages SS&C’s global regulatory expertise to provide a consistent global approach to regulatory compliance, which enables providers to lower risk and improve client service.
“Since 2018, SS&C, has made significant investments to modernise and elevate our service,” says Nick Wright. “We expect that our global servicing platform and capabilities will be a game-changer. A new operational model that can go far beyond the traditional boundaries of transfer agency to help our asset manager clients effectively grow their business.”
