Clearwater® and Unum Group (NYSE: UNM) today announced that Unum has successfully implemented Clearwater as its automated portfolio data management, accounting, and reporting provider, a transformation that enabled the global insurer to sunset more than 20 legacy systems.
Clearwater’s SaaS solution for investment data aggregation, reconciliation, accounting, and reporting enables Unum to more efficiently manage its portfolio and reduce reliance on legacy manual processes and technologies. Prior to implementing Clearwater, Unum utilized a network of more than 20 home-grown and third-party systems across its investment operations infrastructure. Now, those processes are supported by Clearwater’s automated and integrated solution resulting in better data consolidation, accuracy, overall quality, and tailored reporting.
As a leading provider of financial protection benefits worldwide, Unum is committed to helping employers manage their businesses and helps to protect millions of employees and their families. Clearwater’s accurate portfolio data and transparent reporting is a strategic choice for Unum as it continues to serve its customers.
“Clearwater is a core part of our financial change management strategy. We had varied systems in place and needed a streamlined solution for our investment operations that offered a deeper, timely look at our portfolio,” said Danny Waxenberg, Senior Vice President and Chief Accounting Officer at Unum Group. “Clearwater provided just that, and we are confident in a long and successful partnership.”
“Working with Unum on this project has been an absolute pleasure. Both the Unum and Clearwater teams collaborated well from start to finish during the implementation, which helped build a strong foundation for the relationship going forward,” said Jim Cox, Chief Financial Officer at Clearwater. “Unum epitomizes what the modern-day insurer looks like through their people and commitment to technology. We are all very excited to continue our partnership and truly make them successful.”
