Capital Markets

Bring greater order, control and value to the entire trade lifecycle

Data integrity is the backbone of operational resilience

As complexity increases and regulatory oversight intensifies, capital markets firms face escalating pressures to maintain flawless data and process hygiene across the entire trade spectrum. 

From pre-trade pricing and RFQs to post-trade reconciliation, reporting, clearing and settlement, inaccuracies or delays are unacceptable. Regulators and clients demand perfection.

Systemic vulnerabilities in legacy systems

Yet many institutions still grapple with systemic control vulnerabilities emanating from antiquated legacy architecture and an overreliance on employee-built applications. 

Attempting to govern difficult front-to-back workflows while scaling post-trade processing for intercompany and T+0 trading realities across diverse asset classes has become challenging. It’s a situation that has turned into an operational minefield, fraught with compliance risks and the ever-present spectre of losses.
