GBST Holdings Limited Strengths, Domain Expertise, and Key Differentiators

A programme of strategic investment by global financial services technology provider GBST has delivered a major milestone with the release of a new cloud-based version of its Composer wealth administration platform. The new version has already been taken up by two of GBST’s largest Australian clients, both leading financial institutions with a combined two million superannuation members, with one already live and the other in implementation.

As part of their ongoing service, GBST constantly deliver new business features which help enhance and future-proof client propositions as the industry, regulation and consumer needs change and evolve. Alongside their extensive new pension-related functionality, recent updates include additional bond capabilities and a partnership with Origo’s Integration Hub to support client integrations with a wider range of adviser back office systems. The Composer upgrade is the final phase of the E-VOLVE technology transformation programme, following earlier releases that enhanced the database, APIs and the front-end digital experience with the launch of Catalyst.

In March 2022, FNZ, the leading global wealth management platform, completed the re-acquisition of GBST’s market-leading capital markets division from Anchorage Capital Partners. The transaction follows last year’s sale of the wider GBST business to Anchorage, which means GBST’s talented capital markets team, along with its market-leading product suite, which provides proven, seamless and scalable real-time trade and settlement processing capabilities at a global level, is now part of FNZ’s business. The acquisition allows FNZ with an opportunity to expand its product and service offering to exist and future clients, accelerating growth and furthering its mission of opening up wealth and making wealth management services more accessible to more people.

Some of the earlier GBST M&A activities include Palion, Australia’s leading derivatives transaction processing technology; InfoComp, now GBST Wealth Management, a provider of wealth management and client registry software and Coexis for securities processing.

In November 2019, FNZ acquired GBST Holdings.
