Resolving Legacy Operating Platforms

When you are faced with outdated platforms, the discussion to replace, supplement, or outsource isn't easy. Extensive time and cost are at stake, and the consequences are expensive.

Assessing and Optimizing Operations Effectiveness

Are you maximizing straight-through processing in your operations? Stay ahead of the competition by seeing how you compare to your peers, and identifying key areas for improvement.

Streamlining and Simplifying Performance

Calculating performance in multiple places and with numerous tools can result in a performance reconciliation circus. It's hard to know if you have best practices in place, if you need a PBOR, or how to best address intra-day and multiple end-of-day global reporting.

Preparing for Regulatory Change

Changing regulations can significantly impact operations, so staying current is critical. You need the right ecosystem and architecture in place to effectively respond and adapt to changes, including LIBOR transition, Uncleared Margin Rules (UMR), and more.

Areas of Expertise

Bad operations can drag on performance. Smart operations accelerate it.
