SMARTER Documentation for Capital Markets
Capital Markets participants can no longer afford inefficient document negotiation and manual processes. Documents must be created, shared and stored digitally to facilitate downstream data processing and reduce reconciliation. Currently, there continues to be a heavy reliance on market participants to manually reconcile data from documents throughout the trade lifecycle.
SmartDXTM cloud technology reduces manual capture of the same data terms across multiple teams and unlocks golden source data in machine readable format. This is critical to ensuring consistency in downstream systems, aiding in reconciliation and eliminating duplicate manual processes. Getting data into record keeping systems is a regulatory requirement and, increasingly, a business differentiator. The solution can be embedded into a bank’s business processes as part of implementing a document digitization strategy. This will provide significant improvements in operational efficiency and pave the way for new target operating models.
