European Savings Directive - November 2005
Electrum is currently making changes to systems and macros at a leading investment manager to ensure they comply with new regulations for the European Savings Directive regarding multiple account holders and beneficiaries. The changes enable existing systems to be used, despite numerous changes to the user interface and functionality. Electrum was chosen for the job because of their skills and experience with the systems and their ability to quickly add and change functionality without changing the underlying systems or file formats. Changing systems in this way is quick, cost effective and extends the lifetime of legacy systems while providing up-to-date features and functionality.
