LONDON and NEW YORK, July 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Traiana, the leading infrastructure service for trade lifecycle and risk management solutions, today announced that it has launched a new service to fully automate the post trade lifecycle management of the multi-trillion dollar equity swaps market. Traiana's Equity Swaps Lifecycle Management service will transform the market's previously manual, labor intensive and inefficient post trade affirmation processes for clients globally.
Equity Swaps Lifecycle Management normalizes data reported by swap providers and conducts reconciliation and affirmation of daily valuations, payments and legal confirmations to identify any changes to the underlying swap attributes. It also improves the longstanding negative affirmation issues in the equity swaps market by allowing buyside firms to view all exceptions in one place. Disputes can then be resolved between counterparties on a daily basis using the exception manager tool, rather than after monthly resets are struck.
"Until now, it has been extremely challenging for buyside firms to sift through multiple swap provider reporting statements in various formats, across thousands of trades and positions per day to look for potential issues and work out exactly what has changed at the month-end reset," said Joanna Davies, Global Head of Traiana. "Our new Equity Swaps Lifecycle Management service creates huge operational efficiencies and significantly reduces settlement risk for market participants."
Phase one of Equity Swaps Lifecycle Management is now live with further phases set to be released throughout 2019 and 2020.
