London, 16 November 2005 — Financial Objects, a leading provider of advanced banking and financial services software solutions, announced today that the Investment Software Services Division of Wealth Management Software (WMS), acquired in May 2005, has been incorporated into the Activebank Division of Financial Objects plc. As part of this move, the LISA suite of products is being renamed under the activebank brand.
The products formerly known as LISA Retail, LISA Pensions (including LISA Pensions for A-Day), LISA Portfolio Manager, LISA Commission Manager and LISA Child Trust Funds will be incorporated into the activebank Wealth Management Application Suite. Financial Objects’ wealth management solutions now include: Wrap, Pensions, Wealth Manager and Client Reporting.
