Fiera Sceptre Selects B-One Solution for Performance, Risk Attribution and GIPS Compliancy

BI-SAM today announced that Fiera Sceptre has selected its B-One platform for performance, risk measurement and attribution, thereby becoming the group’s first Canadian client.

Fiera Sceptre was formed by the merger of Sceptre Investment Counsel Limited and Fiera Capital Inc in August 2010. Fiera Capital had been approached by BI-SAM in early 2010, before its merger with Sceptre, and selected B-One for its advanced functionalities primarily on the back of their fixed income attribution capabilities. Fiera Sceptre will be using B-One for Fixed Income, Equity as well as Ex-Post risk attribution. Additionally, B-One’s GIPS module will also be implemented to help with GIPS compliancy.

“At the end of the selection process, BI-SAM was the best and obvious partner for our performance measurement and attribution project,” said Maher Hemissi, vice president performance, risk measurement and IT at Fiera Sceptre “We have been really impressed by the B-One product functionalities which fully answer our needs and more importantly will allow us to provide a superior service to our clients. Their North American implementation team will ensure a full service during the pilot and implementation phases and beyond.”

“We are very proud to have been selected by Fiera Sceptre”, commented Christophe Volard, COO of BI-SAM Inc, “This first Canadian client reinforces our presence in North America and shows the capacity of our B-One platform to answer North American asset managers’ needs. Our ambition is for B-One to become the system of choice for performance, attribution, risk, GIPS and reporting teams in North America.”
