Mourant Deploys SunGard to Help Manage $80b Private Equity Fund Administration Business

London - 13 November 2007

Mourant International Finance Administration (Mourant), a leading global fund administration services business, announced today that it has partnered with SunGard, a leading provider of software and processing solutions, to deploy SunGard’s Investran solution to support its core capabilities for administration of private equity and other alternative asset funds. SunGard Investran is an integrated application suite that automates front-, middle- and back-office processes for private equity and alternative investment firms.

Investran will provide Mourant with an integrated solution to help manage all its client activities. Mourant will use Investran to process high-volume accounting, reporting and investor relations for private equity funds, on behalf of its clients. The solution will also help to drive Mourant's operational efficiency and service capabilities, helping it to achieve the continued growth plans of its administration business.

“We selected SunGard’s Investran solution primarily for its ability to handle our complex client fund base – over 100 fund manager clients of all types, and in excess of 200 private equity funds alone. We also needed a solution that was scalable enough to support our growth plans,” commented Ian Lambert, chief executive officer at Mourant International Finance Administration. “Investran’s ability to offer tools to extend our capabilities and interface with other third party systems, as well as adapt to frequent changes in regulatory and industry expectations, made it a natural fit with our expansion plans.”

Emanuel Mond, president of SunGard’s alternative investments business, commented, “As the private equity industry grows and diversifies its client base, firms require an infrastructure that facilitates, rather than constrains, growth. Investran’s breadth of fund coverage and flexibility will help Mourant to achieve its business targets. We are pleased to have Mourant join our expanding customer base.”
