Electra was acquired by Gresham Technologies, the leading software and services company specialising in solutions for data integrity and control, banking integration, payments and cash management, in June 2021.
As the capital markets industry is becoming more complex amid increased regulatory scrutiny, firms cannot afford errors or delays in their data or processes across the trade lifecycle, from pre-trade orders, inventory, pricing and RFQs in the front-office, through to post-trade reconciliation, regulatory reporting, clearing and settlement in the middle and back-offices. Regulators and customers will simply not accept it.
Outdated legacy systems and increasing reliance on user developed applications or in-house tools result in a lack of control across the business. Managing key front-to back-office processes and growing post-trade requirements in intraday, intercompany and T+0 trading environments across multiple asset classes causes operational and compliance risk, leading to significant losses.
We help capital markets firms gain complete trust in their data and operational frameworks and gain more value across the entire trade lifecycle. You'll know that your data is accurate, validated and complete, even in a complex trading environment. Our end-to-end automation and controls are built to manage a wide array of interfaces, feeds and exceptions across the global markets, while our real-time, agile matching engine handles large volumes of complex and varied data every day.
