Corporate History

It was back in 1996 that Univeris set its vision and course to build an enterprise application enabling Total Financial Management (TFM) for Canadian financial institutions. That same year, MPS, or Money Products System was launched as the first real-time mutual fund dealer system in Canada. MPS revolutionized the mutual fund distribution market with its ability to be integrated throughout the company operations, enabling sales agents to track transactions from start to finish, as well as access client and portfolio information through integrated Practice Management functionality.

In 2004, CTA Systemsource re-branded as Univeris and MPS was renamed EWMS.

“From the very beginning our vision was to make TFM a reality for financial institutions and MPS was the first part of that vision” states Carmine Tullio, President and CEO of Univeris. “We worked very closely with our first customers back in the late 1990’s and continue, to this day, to work with our clients to build the absolutely finest enterprise wealth management platform available”.
