Post-trade services include transaction reporting, confirmations portal and a swaps portal, while UnaVista’s data solutions provide a range of reference and historical trading data as well as SEDOL Masterfile. UnaVista Reconciliations enables clients to perform any type of reconciliation their business needs all on one platform.
UnaVista transaction reporting is an approved reporting mechanism (ARM) that can help you meet all your regulatory transaction reporting obligations, both for you and your clients. Data is validated against the latest sources to help you identify errors before your reports reach the FSA, as well as assisting in the analysis of over and under-reporting. UnaVista can be rolled out quickly, without the burden of unnecessary back-office, infrastructure and software costs.
The emergence of round-the-clock trading has heightened the need for automated confirmations, which are commonly used as a way to expedite the post-trade process. However, previous confirmation systems have been hindered by the simple fact that they rely on all counterparties being automated in the same way.
UnaVista’s confirmations portal eliminates the need for outdated communications such as faxes and speeds up the overall process. Whether you’re dealing with another broker or a buy-side client, you can manage the confirmation process electronically from start to finish – even if your counterparties are not automated.
Equity derivatives are a vital part of modern markets, providing flexibility and leverage to sophisticated investors, however huge problems can occur if they are not handled properly.
In recent years, hedge funds have spread their swaps business across several prime brokers but so far technology has been lagging behind this trend, with swaps trades still being managed by email and phone.
UnaVista’s swaps portal provides a simple and more accurate way to manage swaps. Whether you’re a hedge fund, executing broker, or prime broker, our system helps you keep track of all your swap transactions electronically. It also makes sure you meet all your compliance obligations.
With reference data totalling 40% of all financial information, it’s essential that you have a reliable source for it. UnaVista can consolidate all your sources of reference data and create golden copies of reference data – increasing your STP rates and reducing risk. Better still, because the London Stock Exchange’s SEDOL Masterfile is part of UnaVista, you will be matching your reference data directly with the source. There is no need to update the information yourself – UnaVista does it for you.
Ensuring your reconciliation processes are correct is considered one of the most effective ways of approaching risk management. However, it can be difficult to find a solution that reduces your risk exposure while increasing your efficiency at the same time. UnaVista can help with this reducing operating costs and giving you total control of your systems.
