BROSSARD, QC, Oct. 6, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - The Fonds régionaux de solidarité FTQ Montérégie are investing $2 million in Diversico, a large network of financial services firms, headquartered in Brossard.
This loan is intended to give Diversico the impetus it needs to grow through acquisitions in Québec and the rest of Canada.
In 2008, Diversico moved to cutting-edge technology when it developed an agile and collaborative ecosystem that allows it to quickly adapt to change. Revolving around System-Expert iGeny Pro and the scanning firm Scan Squad, in which founder Daniel Guillemette has invested millions of dollars, this unique ecosystem plays a key role in Diversico's success and opens the door to unlimited growth without geographical constraints.
With its integrated sophisticated electronic signature mechanism, System-Expert iGeny Pro has significantly raised Diversico's productivity, in particular, thanks to active post-market management ensuring regulatory compliance. With the help of ScanSquad, acquiring the clientele of a consultant who wishes to withdraw or focus on relational activities takes just a few days.
"Diversico is a perfect example of a services firm that has been able to innovate and leverage technology tools tailored to its needs. This, together with its uncanny ability to analyze portfolios for sale, has allowed the firm to make great strides and we're proud to contribute to their plans to expand into new geographic markets."
Johanne Pilon, Regional Director, Fonds régionaux de solidarité FTQ Montérégie
This investment by the Fonds régionaux de solidarité FTQ Montérégie speaks to their confidence in our strategic plan. Their support is invaluable for our growth in Québec and across Canada. They have recognized the value of the technology investments we made in order to improve our performance at every level."
Daniel Guillemette, President, Diversico
