Digitalisation partnership enables Apex to more efficiently and securely deliver client services in full regulatory compliance, starting with its subsidiary entity, the Luxembourg-based European Depositary Bank (“EDB”)
London/Luxembourg, 8 November 2021. Governance.com, the leading low-code process management platform for regulated companies, today announces the signing of a 5-year deal with global financial services provider Apex Group Ltd. (“Apex”), to implement a digital process management platform and systems. Starting with Apex Group’s Luxembourg-based entity, European Depositary Bank (“EDB”), Governance.com will deliver the new digitalisation partnership that will enable Apex to more efficiently and securely deliver services to its clients, underpinned by robust regulatory compliance.
By securely digitalising Apex’s process management systems step by step, the new process management platform will support EDB’s depositary duties such as asset registration, ownership verification and regulatory oversight. The new platform solution will be used by EDB’s teams across several locations starting with Luxembourg and Ireland.
Governance.com’s FinTech solutions are based on a low-code and open architecture approach that supports Apex’s “digital first” agenda and enable it to be an early adopter of FinTech in the space of regulatory process management.
Through EDB, Apex offers independent banking, depositary and custody services to institutional investors and asset managers for UCITS and alternative investment structures, spanning the full spectrum of asset classes. The new deal will be executed with the support of global consultancy Alpha FMC to ensure expedient and effective implementation.
