Are there downsides to manual operational processes?
Manual operational processes can lead to potential control risks, and higher than necessary operational costs.
How can automation improve post trade processes?
Automation can enhance control and realise significant savings in operational effort and costs.
How does Technology play a role in effective post trade processes?
Technology is the key enabler in achieving efficiency and scalability. However, optimum value is only realised when combined with strong processes.
How would C3 Post Trade advise funds, keen to further operational control and effective productivity?
We would encourage funds to review their front-to-back processes, while reducing costs by rationalising systems within their operations.
Can you identify the key characteristics against which processes should be reviewed?
- Straight through
- Real Time
- Exception based
Once these processes have been reviewed, a current state to future state target operating model (TOM) can be established. Subsequently, deliverables can be prioritised and automation can commence. We would further recommend automation should be undertaken on an incremental basis to take into account the daily time pressures on your operation.
What is the key objective of Post Trade automation?
To strengthen operational control and improve operational efficiency. We encourage you to speak to your vendors, prime brokers, custodians and fund administrators to leverage their market knowledge and business domain experience. They can be your valuable eyes and ears into how automation can support and further your operation.
Partnership is at the core of our client value proposition. We appreciate intellectual capital clients bring to the C3 Post Trade platform, and will therefore always seek to share the benefit we realise.
