Proven Solutions for Capital Markets

Financial markets and the regulatory landscape are constantly evolving. Firms in the capital markets must meet strict compliance rules to avoid fines and loss of credibility. Processes, workflows and technology must meet KYC on-boarding, anti-laundering and regulatory reporting requirements. In addition, there are other complex and mission-critical challenges—consolidating disparate data, monitoring and managing critical front office transactions, reducing back office costs.

All this makes IT solutions tailored to the unique need of capital markets operations a real necessity for today’s growing financial organizations. Quinnox offers proven solutions that help:

  • Comply with regulations required by Dodd-Frank, EMIR and other legislation
  • Manage risk with proven workflows, innovative solutions and delivery models
  • Consolidate disparate data, including static, reference and counterparty data
  • Monitor trades and transactions, including identifying those that vary from parameters
  • Improve back office cost-effectiveness while boosting productivity
