Merger: zetVisions and KPMG Law enter into cooperation in investment management
KPMG Law’s Global Entity Management Service for standard legal services is combined with zetVisions’ CIM investment management software
Heidelberg-based zetVisions AG, a specialist in software solutions for investment and master data management, and KPMG Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH (“KPMG Law”) have agreed on a strategic cooperation in investment management. The subject of the cooperation is the combination of KPMG Global Entity Management (GEM), which is currently being developed, with zetVisions Corporate Investment Manager (CIM), the most widely used software solution for investment management in the DACH region. The aim is to work closely together in providing services that are complementary for both cooperation partners.
With GEM, KPMG Law will in future offer a service for the worldwide support of group companies with standard legal services. This gives companies the opportunity to ensure the corporate compliance of their group companies for a fixed price and to take advantage of other standard services at reduced hourly rates. All investment-relevant processes of a company are completely recorded and kept up to date in the zetVisions Corporate Investment Manager. CIM supports investment management and enables the realization of economies of scale.
“zetVisions and KPMG Law intend to work closely together to combine zetVisions’ expertise in investment management with KPMG Law’s international corporate law know-how in a meaningful and solution-oriented way for clients and customers,” says Monika Pürsing, CEO of zetVisions AG.
The zetVisions CIM software supports companies in their task of professionally managing national and international investments and controlling them in a value-oriented manner. It is the world’s first and only SAP-based software for the management of corporate investments in a quality certified by auditors. Certification in accordance with the IDW PS 880 auditing standard confirms that zetVisions CIM reliably meets the regularity requirements for operational information systems.
“As a globally positioned law firm in the KPMG network, we are able to record the investment-relevant transactions of group companies worldwide and provide standard legal services in any jurisdiction at highly attractive terms. In this way, the client’s resources are considerably relieved,” explains Dr. Philipp Wüllrich, Senior Manager at KPMG Law. “With CIM, we now also have the ideal software tool to map this information and hold it for top management, as well as the specialist departments.”
