Bravura signs a major deal with ASB Bank

Sydney, 20 December 2017 – Bravura Solutions Limited today announced that it has signed a long-term contract with existing client, ASB Bank Limited (ASB), for the implementation of its Sonata platform. Sonata will underpin ASB’s integrated KiwiSaver, retail and group investments business.

ASB, a subsidiary of the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, is a leading New Zealand financial services provider, serving over 500,000 retail and employer customers in the KiwiSaver, investment, insurance, platform and securities markets. Having recently embarked on a new phase of innovation and growth, ASB will leverage Sonata to drive the delivery of innovative real-time digital offerings to customers.

Sonata is a next-generation wealth management solution, capable of supporting investment, wrap, pensions and life insurance products across multiple distribution channels. It provides clients with a customer-centric digital platform that can streamline administration and increase cost efficiencies though powerful inbuilt workflow process automation.

Adam Boyd, Executive General Manager of Wealth at ASB Bank said: “Following a competitive process, we chose Sonata as part of a wider growth strategy to enhance our digital service offering to our customers. Sonata’s rich functionality will allow us to deliver new real-time digital customer experiences, and achieve enhanced customer engagement through heightened levels of online interactivity.”
