Wipro expanded Spectramind’s BPS services to transaction  processing services including asset and wealth management processes. The purpose of the service expansion was to cross-sell its capital markets clients. In 2006, a major European investment bank awarded a BPS contract to Wipro for the processing of asset clearing and settlements.
