SGSS launches CrossWise, a complete “front to back” solution

Societe Generale Securities Services (SGSS) has put together its existing renowned Front, Dealing, Middle and Back office services into one plug-and-play solution that allows clients to focus on their main activities: asset selection, performances and distribution to their clients.

Built as a modular solution, CrossWise enables asset managers to outsource as many services as needed so they can focus on their core business. Bundling all SGSS’ “front to back” expertise and its capacities in trading and securities services, CrossWise allows clients to optimize their operating model and meet all regulatory constraints, such as audit trails or best execution.
