London, 3 April 2018 – corfinancial, a leading provider of specialist software and services to the Financial Services sector, has supported US outsourcing provider Archer in bringing a number of new clients onto its salerio solution for post-trade processing.

Headquartered in the Philadelphia region, Archer provides a robust ecosystem of technology and services to the asset management industry. Archer’s rapid business expansion has been bolstered by salerio’s progressive post-trade processing, reporting, and alert tools.

In recent months, Archer has successfully integrated the salerio solution in the services offered to new and existing Archer clients. Trades of investment firms representing USD$42.7b assets under management are facilitated through the salerio-enabled Archer trade settlement solution.
