Bravura teams up with Sybase to host wealth management proposition in UK

Bravura Solutions is teaming up with mobile software firm Sybase to host its wealth management proposition, Talisman, in the UK.

The move means Bravura is now able to provide secure hosted applications to support clients’ wrap propositions from its UK data centre.

Bravura chief technology officer Nick Parsons says: “Through our agreement with Sybase, our wrap platform is being used in the UK market on a hosted basis for the first time.

“Hosting Talisman reduces time to market for our customers which is critical in current market conditions. Sybase gives us a tremendously resilient platform to underpin our hosted offering.”

Bravura currently powers the Aviva Wrap and the Nucleus wrap.

Platform specialist Stan Kirk says: “I’m surprised that they aren’t already hosting Talisman in the UK. Previously they were hosting everything in Australia which strikes me as a bit weird. It makes the whole thing a little bit slower and it means that when things go wrong it makes it a bit more difficult to fix them.”
