Mr. Dirk Smet, General Manager Privilege-, Private- & Business Clients at Belfius comments: "We have chosen SimCorp Dimension because we see it as the best solution to provide the level of automation, flexibility and functional coverage we need. The system will enable us to operate more efficiently and ease our regulatory compliance efforts going forward. Ultimately, this is a strategic choice that will bring further value to our clients."
