Financial solutions provider Profile Software has snapped up asset and fund management solutions provider Euronext Centevo for an undisclosed sum.
Under the agreement, Profile will purchase 100% of Euronext Centevo as the latter looks to offload non-core operations.
Euronext bought Stockholm-based Centevo in 2019 as part of the takeover of Oslo Børs VPS.
Profile CEO Evangelos Angelides said: “The financial services market in the Nordics has always been a strategic priority of ours due to its long tradition in the areas of asset and fund management. Today, we are integrating with a leading company in the Nordics that has a loyal client base.
“We would like to thank Euronext for this transaction which also initiates the future co-operation between Euronext and Profile.”
Centevo caters to more than 65 of the largest asset and fund managers and banks in the Nordics. This covers Norway, Sweden Denmark and Finland.
