Summary

Sagence’s reference data project management services helped an investment banker meet aggressive regulatory requirements by eliminating manual processes and resolving regulatory operational gaps.

Challenge

The executive leadership of a global investment banker tasked with meeting regulatory requirements, needed to improve operational and reporting practices to improve efficiency, controls, quality, and eliminate any manual tasks. The leadership was committed to resolving regulatory operational gaps and to improving efficiency opportunities. They called Sagence for our reference data project management expertise in the investment banking industry.

Solution

Our experienced reference data project managers served as business analysts across 20+ programs. The projects ranged from client onboarding, corporate actions, Avox integration, client delegated reporting, portfolio reconciliation, delinquent trade reporting, client master maintenance, and reference data replication processes. For each project, we provided business requirements, process reengineering, and data-driven analysis to close regulatory gaps for reference data quality, vendor data quality, controls, automation, vendor integration, and reporting (e.g. FATCA, EMIR, CFTC, ISDA, Dodd-Frank). In addition to these business-specific activities, we also performed expected project management tasks including coordinating across global teams, communicating statuses to executive sponsors, escalating risks and issues in a timely manner, and managing expectations and deadlines.

Results

Our client was able to avoid regulatory, reputational, and operational risks via the enhanced processes Sagence designed. We helped our client eliminate manual steps in reference data operations and implemented additional workflow automation and business decision rules. Our client improved reference data operational efficiency via reference data quality, accuracy, consistency, maintenance, controls, governance, and reporting/transparency.
