The company: Bisys Group Inc. is one of the largest mutual fund and 401(k) administrators in the country. Bisys serves as an outsourcing company for large financial institutions; the meat of its mutual fund administration business includes pricing portfolios and individual accounts, taking care of regulatory commitments, and sending out statements.

The markets: Bisys has concentrated on the banking and thrift segments of the financial services industry since its inception in the mid-1960s. By making two to three acquisitions per year since the early 1990s, Bisys has built a collection of data-heavy, capital-expenditure- light businesses that have extended the company's reach into mutual fund and insurance outsourcing services.
