Efficiencies Equal Savings
How can we make our processes more efficient and process more with less?

We have designed, recommended and led initiatives to centralize functions and offshore them as needed. These recommendations have resulted in significant cost savings.

Without knowledge of the business and the regulatory environment, it’s difficult to make realistic recommendations.

Many of our consultants have instituted processes to do just that, building efficient and automated solutions that can be used in a shared services environment or on a standalone basis.


Processes & Controls

Are your production processes efficient and controlled?

We streamline processes and implement seamless changes so that you are operating in a controlled environment and at the highest level of efficiency.

If you are unable to find resources with the combination of production management and process improvement capabilities, we can help. These resources are difficult to find in the current environment. Our consultants have established and documented numerous operations and systems processes within the capital markets operation and technology infrastructure.

Our experience with specific process change and implementation includes:

  • Straight-Through Processing
  • Business and Functional Requirements
  • Batch Processing
  • System Development Lifecycle
  • Standards and Best Practices
  • Training Manuals
  • Procedure Manuals
  • Reconciliations
  • Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)


Is your technology infrastructure outdated and manually intensive?

We not only understand the business, we understand industry best practices and the tools available to you.

Our consultants have worked on large-scale advisory initiatives within global FCMs. We have worked with global FCMs to review their firms’ global exchange-traded derivatives clearing infrastructure. We have provided gap analysis between the current-state operating model and the best practices employed throughout the industry. We have prepared the road maps to implement the future-state target operating and architecture model. These recommendations have included the associated cost estimates and project prioritization.

Subject Matter Experts
Do you need SMEs with specific industry and technology experience to effectively design and implement solutions?

Our consultants have been in the capital markets industry for many years, working at software firms as well as large global banks, broker dealers and FCMs successfully implementing change.

Finding resources that have in-depth industry experience is difficult. Our consultants have a wide range of skills and can fill or supplement your needs in both technology and operations roles. Our SME classifications include front and back-office accounting systems and technology, back-office operations, SDLC, QA and testing strategy, and risk and compliance. We have actually worked in several of the positions in your current infrastructure, so we understand the complexities and specific needs of the industry. We have worked globally with large and small firms on four continents: Europe, Asia, Australia and the Americas. We have global account management experience and have managed several projects affiliated with technology and exchange-traded initiatives from requirements gathering through delivery.
