The key driver for deploying the Eagle platform was Eagleâs commitment to collaborate with Desjardins Asset Management to build out International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) requirements in support of Canadian and global financial reporting standards that have taken effect. Eagle introduced IFRS support in its V10.0 software version which was released in 2009, and it continues to add functionality to further address client needs for international financial reporting standards. Eagleâs data management platform was selected to provide a foundation for future integration of Desjardins Asset Management's other applications and business needs.
âEagleâs innovative technology and continued investment in research and development are reasons we selected Eagle. A significant aspect of this decision was based on our collaboration with Eagle to support its build out of IFRS,â said Gregory Chrispin, chief operating officer, Desjardins Asset Management. âOur previous technology was not current with IFRS or the instrument coverage necessary to grow our business, so it was important for Desjardins Asset Management to move onto a new data management platform and investment accounting solution.â
âWe are seeing significant interest from firms both in Canada and globally that are seeking systems to improve their operational efficiency and workflow by implementing a single integrated asset management platform, rather than working with systems that require multiple integration points and interfacesâ said Mal Cullen, Eagleâs head of Canadian Operations and Eagle ACCESSSM.
