The OLYPMUS project is a Finance Transformation program where we not only want to introduce new cloud-based applications and infrastructure but also move to an agile way of working.

One of our core applications is the sub-ledger for preparing and reporting multi-valuation financial statements (IFRS and many other local valuations) for our assets and liabilities. This is a completely new product that we have developed in a co-innovation project with SAPFioneer (FPSL) and is also being rolled out to many of our competitors in the insurance industry. We are located around the globe, but we share the same values of passion, openness, respect, humility and curiosity in our team.
And our common goal is to improve our work for our clients
