ATLANTA, Feb. 10, 2016 /CNW/ - Infosys McCamish Systems LLC, an Infosys BPO company, and M Financial Group today announced a 10-year extension of their BPO contract till 2025. For the last 15 years, Infosys McCamish has been managing the customer care center, policy administration, and claims processing activities for Magnastar®, one of M Financial's signature proprietary life insurance products. Magnastar® is a multi-carrier, private placement, variable universal life insurance product available exclusively to M Member Firms.

- This contract extension is the third since the inception of the relationship between M Financial Group and Infosys McCamish in 2000
- It underscores the success of the M Financial-Infosys McCamish partnership
- The relationship is anchored with M Financial, but includes six separate contracts with each of the M Financial partner carriers that participate in the Magnastar® program
- The solution provides a unique service environment that allows M Financial to partition the coverage of a single sale, if necessary, across multiple partner carriers to diversify risk and broaden investment opportunities. While Infosys McCamish administers such split sales in accordance with their separate legal statuses, it can report them to M Financial, the Member Firm and the Member Firm's clients as if such sales were a single transaction, thereby greatly simplifying all policy-holder reporting
Gordon Beckham, President and CEO, Infosys McCamish Systems

Daniel F. Byrne, M Financial's Senior Vice President and Chief Product and Technology Officer
