Metavante Corp. is buying Prime Associates Inc. to expand the services it offers financial institutions. Clark, New Jersey-based Prime Associates provides software to financial institutions that help them comply with anti-money laundering regulations.

Executives at Metavante, a unit of Marshall & Ilsley, said they expect the purchase of the software maker to enable them to boost sales to existing clients.
