Future-proofing a market leader

After pioneering unit linked insurances in Scandinavia, Skandia has continued to lead the market for years.

While the company continually had refined and streamlined its fund trading operation, they were were facing key personnel dependencies due to the IT infrastructure that was being used.

To future-proof their operations they needed to switch to a standardized system for fund trading management.

And it needed to cover banking customers as well as the unit linked business.

So, they came to Lumera.

Accommodating advanced business operations

To mitigate risks and ensure success well into the future Lumera and Skandia engaged in a multi-year agreement that helped Lumera to develop better fund trading functionalities and Skandia to reduce the risk of key personnel dependency.

We deployed Lumera with standard integrations for automated interfaces in the fund management ecosystem, like fund information, fund order hubs and banking payments.

Once full integration into Skandia’s bespoke IT landscape had taken place the system went live over two subsequent weekends in 2020.

The foundation of modern, flexible infrastructure

Skandia’s important fund trading now relies on a fully modern, flexible and maintained platform – Lumera.

By constantly maintaining and enhancing their platform (part of our standard delivery model and partnership agreement) we’re able to help them stay compliant and meet new market needs.
