Digiterre CEO relocates to the US

Financial Services CRM provider reaffirms commitment to core strategic US marketplace

Digiterre, the leading provider of software solutions to the global investment management industry today announced the strategic relocation of their CEO to the US. The plan entails Digiterre’s Chief Executive Officer Ian Murrin relocating with his family to the US.

The move coincides with the recent launch of Communica, Digiterre’s enhanced CRM platform, which encompasses five modules including dCRM for core relationship management, Fund Flows for the tracking and analysis of capital flows and fees & rebates reporting, Connect for secure, integrated client extranets and Mobile – the most advanced mobile application available in the industry.

Ian Murrin, Chief Executive Officer, Digiterre Corporation said:
“Five years after we first established our New York office, the Americas have become a very significant part of Digiterre’s business – both strategically and in terms of existing clients and revenues. In recognition of that fact, I have relocated my family here to enable me to spearhead the future growth and development of Digiterre in the Americas and to further augment our historic annualised revenue growth rates of +25% p.a.

I believe that the Communica Platform is now the clear, number one choice for large US investment managers – for two simple reasons. Firstly, it has been engineered using the very latest software technologies and methodologies available, which confers enormous benefits to our clients in terms of usability and technical flexibility. Secondly, the functional design incorporates more than a decade of experience in meeting the sophisticated needs of investment managers globally and solves many of the complex problems such as the accurate tracking of capital flows, which have yet to be fully solved by other providers in the market. The product development team has worked exceptionally hard to ensure that the platform is a full generation ahead of our competitors and with the recent launch of the Communica Enterprise Platform – which makes our technology available to the very largest of managers and enterprises, I felt the time was right to relocate to the US in order to raise awareness of how the Communica Platform could assist the growth of managers within the US. And by increasing Digiterre’s resource commitment to the Americas we will be better positioned to offer the same exemplary levels of service and support to our US clients, that we currently deliver to our European and Asian clients.”
