Software services firm plans 500 jobs in Evansville

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Windsor, Conn.-based SS&C Technologies Holdings Inc. will invest about $3.9 million to open a service and technology center in Evansville, creating up to 500 jobs by 2014.

State officials announced the plans Tuesday morning.

Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered SS&C as much as $8.3 million in performance-based tax credits and up to $200,000 in training grants based on its job-creation plans. The city of Evansville will consider additional property tax abatement at the request of the Growth Alliance for Greater Evansville.

Publicly traded SS&C provides software services for trading, accounting, reporting, risk management and fund administration to hedge-fund clients, insurance companies and institutional asset managers.

The company plans to begin hiring fund accountants and account managers, in addition to sales and operations support representatives, with an expected opening in the second quarter of 2011. A location has yet to be determined.

“SS&C is a company that has continued to grow even during the challenging economic times,” Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels said in a prepared statement. “We couldn’t be happier that they’ve chosen to bring these new high-skill positions to Evansville.”

SS&C is the fifth-largest fund administrator in North America based on assets under administration. It was founded in 1986 and has more than 1,400 employees in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.

  1. Really, taking someone managing the regulation of Alcohol and making himthe President of an IVY Tech regional campus. Does he have an education background?

  2. Jan, great rant. Now how about you review the report and offer rebuttal of the memo. This might be more conducive to civil discourse than a wild rant with no supporting facts. Perhaps some links to support your assertions would be helpful

  3. I've lived in Indianapolis my whole and been to the track 3 times. Once for a Brickyard, once last year on a practice day for Indy 500, and once when I was a high school student to pick up trash for community service. In the past 11 years, I would say while the IMS is a great venue, there are some upgrades that would show that it's changing with the times, just like the city is. First, take out the bleachers and put in individual seats. Kentucky Motor Speedway has individual seats and they look cool. Fix up the restrooms. Add wi-fi. Like others have suggested, look at bringing in concerts leading up to events. Don't just stick with the country music genre. Pop music would work well too I believe. This will attract more young celebrities to the Indy 500 like the kind that go to the Kentucky Derby. Work with Indy Go to increase the frequency of the bus route to the track during high end events. That way people have other options than worrying about where to park and paying for parking. Then after all of this, look at getting night lights. I think the aforementioned strategies are more necessary than night racing at this point in time.

  4. Talking about congestion ANYWHERE in Indianapolis is absolutely laughable. Sure you may have to wait in 5 minutes of traffic to travel down BR avenue during *peak* times. But that is absolutely nothing compared to actual big cities. Indy is way too suburban to have actual congestion problems. So please, never bring up "congestion" as an excuse to avoid development in Indianapolis. If anything, we could use a little more.

  5. Oh wait. Never mind.
