The BTG Pactual Timberland Investment Group (TIG) is a multinational investment bank manages forested trees as an investment vehicle for retirement and pension plans. The firm has $3B AUM and 1.7M acres under management​.

TIG needed to optimize for a global environment with complex entity relationships (50+ legal entities, each with unique budget/reporting requirements), and growth. A global, multi-tenant, distributed identity management solution, built with Azure with Active Directory Federated Services ​and Azure SQL databases to support multiple websites on Azure App Services​, enabled workloads to be shifted out of existing data centers to Azure to take advantage of dynamic computing power for forest mapping software​.

What was the outcome?

  • Accounting system optimized for a global environment with complex entity relationships
  • Visibility across all funds and individual legal entities
  • Fully automated financial consolidation process
  • Full integration with key business applications
  • Positioned to seize opportunities that will support and enable growth & scale

The solution also provided an automated, fast, precise process for complex consolidations with independent, distributed entities​. With cost-effective scalability, the system grows with demand, and newly acquired entities are simply “plugged in,” eliminating big IT integrations​. Visibility across all funds and individual legal entities has empowered the firm to execute larger acquisitions through elastic compute for investment projections​.
