This week, DerivSource interviewed Alexandre Bon, Senior Solution Architect at Murex, to discuss the growing needs of an Enterprise View of Data in Financial Service firms.

The guessing game is over. Brexit is official. Pretty soon, the United Kingdom will no longer be a member of the European Union. Which means that lawyers around the world are scratching their heads about what it means for their clients, their firm or their company. Is it cause for panic, or a storm in a tea-cup?
It was a beautiful afternoon in Boston as Chief Compliance Officers from the area convened to discuss the changing role of compliance at their financial services firms.

According to The National Contract Management Association, 81% of members reported that finding their contracts was a major concern. Think about your own experience - have you ever needed to look into the details of a contract and couldn’t find the right agreement?

I spent this week with our talented team in London and talking with leaders in both financial services and insurance. We've recently delivered a new Contract Model that enables companies to more effectively manage risk. Most of the leaders I spoke with expressed deep concerns about the risk embedded in their contracts- one top ten bank said "we have all the data, we just don't know if it's the right data".
Are you still drafting thousands of contracts manually? In Word? Or storing multiple versions of paper contracts in a filing cabinet? Well, you’re not alone.
“You’re wanted upstairs. Now. As in, immediately.” There’s nothing quite like these words to kick off a relaxing day at the office. You head up to the executive suite wondering what fire-drill, or firing offense, awaits.
