LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., June 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In a move that is expected to better position the company for long-term growth and help existing and prospective financial market clients enhance their operations and business models, Broadridge Financial Solutions (NYSE: BR) announces the successful and on time migration of its currently outsourced data center and applications to IBM.  With the support of IBM, this transition is another example of Broadridge's ability to complete large-scale technology conversions on time and on budget.

The redundant infrastructure, which is ISO 27001 and ISO 9001 certified, provides state-of-the-art security and provides significant capabilities to scale to meet client needs.  The data center supports the processing of over $4 trillion in equity and fixed income trades each day, services 13 of the 20 primary dealers of fixed income securities in the U.S. and processes more than one billion of investor communications each year.
