FIS: Wealth Outsourcing Services

Business Process Management & Outsourcing

An introduction video to FIS' Wealth Outsourcing Services offering, ...

Business Overview

For a better understanding of how FIS evolved into a world-renowned financial services technology leader, one needs to look back at the company's history.

The company was founded in 1968 as Systematics™, which was later acquired by ALLTEL Information Services, and then bought by title insurance giant Fidelity National Financial® in 2003, who renamed it Fidelity Information Services (FIS). Over the course of the next few years, FIS acquired several other financial services technology firms, including Certegy® in 2006, eFunds® in 2007 and Metavante in 2009. These acquisitions broadened its reach across the globe, earned FIS a place on the Fortune 500 listing, and positioned the company as the largest technology provider to the global financial industry.

In 2015, FIS acquired SunGard – its largest acquisition to date. SunGard’s complementary offerings brought FIS into new markets for financial technology services, including education and the public sector, as well as adding asset managers, traders, custodians, treasurers, third-party administrators and clearing agents to the broader FIS client base.

This combination of organic and external growth has positioned FIS among the world’s leading technology providers for the financial services industry. Through the visionary leadership of its management and its philosophy of championing its clients’ success each and every day, FIS remains on a short list of providers capable of offering end-to-end solutions to financial institutions and retailers across the world.

At all levels of our organization, we are champions of our clients’ mission. Being a client champion means:

  • Inspiring – a passion to act

We embrace agility and speed as we break down barriers to drive our clients’ business forward. 

  • Fostering – an entrepreneurial spirit

We think big and act boldly to reinvent the financial world of tomorrow, seeing what’s ahead so our clients can focus on what’s at hand. In turn, we create inspiring career opportunities for our employees.

  • Building – trust in all we do

We build our business and our relationships on a foundation of openness, honesty, reliability and integrity while incorporating a risk and security discipline into everything we do.

  • Empowering – employee growth

We empower employees to grow every day. We develop talent and career aspirations by collectively building an environment of success that breaks down barriers, fosters collaboration and creates new, bold possibilities of opportunity.

  • Encouraging – giving back

We passionately and purposefully encourage a culture of giving back – to our clients, to our communities and to our FIS colleagues – around the world to make a positive difference.

As wealth management clients look for new ways to better service investors and help them achieve their financial goals, while profitably growing their business, the ability to offer capabilities at all points across the wealth continuum is essential. Wealth and trust firms must offer comprehensive services that drive a client-centric approach and bolster their competitive positions, as well as improve internal collaboration among front-line talent. A firm’s ability to operate smarter plays a role in advancing customer engaged business models through improved enterprise data management.

FIS works with thousands of clients of all sizes looking for the appropriate financial products and services that best fits their business needs. Offering firms superior software, services and industry expertise to help clients acquire, manage and grow investments assets in a cost-effective manner.
