Altus Business Systems rebrands as Equisoft

Altus Business Systems has rebranded as Equisoft, confirming that its delivery system for pensions dashboards will now be operated under Equisoft.

Acquired by Equisoft in July 2021, Altus is made up of Altus Consulting, which will retain its independent status and name, and Altus Business Systems which has rebranded as Equisoft.

The rebrand therefore aims to align Altus and Equisoft’s product capabilities and expertise under one umbrella, while Altus Consulting will remain independent, with the Altus Business Systems software solutions to sit within the Equisoft portfolio of products.

In particular, Altus products that have been moved under the Equisoft name include the Altus Transfer Gateway, Altus Pension Gateway, Altus Investment Gateway and Altus Funds Gateway.

The delivery system for the Pensions Dashboards Programme, Pension Fusion, will also be operated under Equisoft.

Commenting on the rebrand, Equisoft products director for UK products, Nick Meredith, stated: “We are delighted to be more closely integrated with the Equisoft global business; and to be able to do this seamlessly and without any changes to the level and delivery of service that our clients can expect.

“We stay committed to solving the biggest challenges faced by financial services organisations with market leading technology.

“Bringing everything together will enable customers to benefit from a larger suite of integrated insurance and investment technologies, as well as opportunities for greater development of existing products and the same high levels of service they are used to.”
