A SunGard customer since 2009, BMO Capital Markets rolled out Global One for its global equity finance business.

In a prepared statement, Craig Costigan, EVP and general manager for SunGard’s Global One business unit, said, “As firms look to control the costs of their securities finance operations, SunGard’s Global One can help them increase efficiencies through a single global platform.”
