Paris, October 2, 2019 – Atos, a global leader in digital transformation, today announced it has been positioned for the first time by global analysts NelsonHall as a leader in Wealth and Asset Management services for support of new business models. NelsonHall credited the acquisition of Syntel with bringing a strong North American presence and a much larger client base.
In its evaluation, NelsonHall highlighted Atos strengths as being its strong experience and partnerships with leading product vendors, a large client base of multi-geography tier one W&A manager and strong SaaS and cloud delivery capabilities built over many years.
