Sienna Investment Managers accelerates its digital transformation.
Sienna Investment Managers is an asset management platform of the listed investment holding company GBL (Groupe Bruxelles Lambert), with offices in Luxembourg, London, Paris, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Madrid, Amsterdam, Zurich and Seoul. Managing more than €30 billion in assets, Sienna Investment Managers supports companies and individuals seeking a sustainable and inclusive economy. Its teams cover a broad spectrum of expertise.
The company sought to accelerate its digital transformation and equip itself with a solution that would allow it to ensure the group’s corporate governance and also to automate its legal and compliance documentation. ““Within Sienna’s legal team, we wanted to be able to focus on high value-added tasks for our operational teams and consequently to reduce the time spent on repetitive tasks. Docify appeared as the most appropriate tool to face this challenge. We also wanted to have a clear view on the governance of the group with a tool including all the required information and documents of our companies in view also of sharing important data with operational teams. DiliTrust perfectly fills this role and is used on a daily basis by many people internally” explained Quentin Ramaget, Legal Operation Officer at Sienna Investment Managers.
A clear response to Sienna’s needs
The company chose Docify and DiliTrust to meet the needs of its legal department so that it could benefit from efficient and intuitive tools. This will allow the company to automate document production and manage the group’s corporate governance. The aim now is to increase the efficiency of these tools by connecting them together to speed up processes and increase data quality.
DiliTrust and Docify emerged as the ideal tools to meet this challenge. The objective is to have a clearer vision of the group’s governance thanks to a tool that brings together all the necessary information and documents from all the companies in order to also share the relevant data with the operational teams. Docify reinforces DiliTrust Governance and fulfils this role perfectly, while being used on a daily basis by many internal personnel.
“At Docify, we are very pleased to assist Sienna’s legal team in the automation of any legal and administrative documents produced internally. It is a unique opportunity to help Sienna’s legal team scale up and keep up with the pace of an ever-growing legal practice. We are also very excited to see Docify connected to DiliTrust, as it will allow for further data to be pushed into the document automation process making it even more efficient”, explained Simon Joly, Co-founder of Docify and former lawyer.
“Supporting the new legal generation is our commitment and we are pleased to be part of the digital transformation of Sienna’s legal department. Being a LegalTech makes sense to us when we implement projects with our clients that aim to boost their productivity and operational efficiency. We are very open to the idea of creating a synergy with Docify, a complementary legal tool, to enable more flexibility in legal operations” says Cyril Godet, Head of Legal Expertise and Alliances at DiliTrust.
