Extended times from winning business to completing onboarding delays ANNR, onboarding involves too many teams manually emailing, keying and rekeying data, account information and monitoring progress. Dealing desks and middle-offices spend way too much time resolving account & market availability around trades, while the allocation process is starved of the data it needs to operate frictionlessly. The Saphyre platform lets custodians, banks and investment managers collaboratively process account onboarding and changes, share and synchronise data. This removes emails and Excel from the picture, while creating efficiency, speed and accuracy. Sophisticated RFQ and allocation tools pull from this single accurate data source, completing an end-to-end, risk-lowering, efficiency-raising and scalable platform.
