Investment Management

investments

Complex financial instruments have always required close risk management. With recent market growth and the corresponding growth in assets managed by investment funds comes a greater need to mitigate risk through state-of-the-art management of ever-growing contract portfolios.

Importance of Contract Visibility

Visibility into contract data facilitates not only better decision making, but also enhanced management of non-standard terms and client obligations – upon which reputation, penalties and future deals depend. Complete contract visibility means being able to capture, access and utilize contract terms; it means a centralized contract repository, out-of-the-box and bespoke reports, and seamless integration with collateral management systems. It means being able to react instantly to triggering events, market changes or crisis scenarios. It means being able to produce documents of the highest quality in a fraction of the time with a fraction of the risk.

Benefits of Implementation

Improved Access to Key Information

  • Compare key agreement terms to regulatory standards and new client requirements
  • Rapidly identify Most Favored Nation (MFN) provisions across all agreements
  • Out-of-the-box or custom reports shed light on critical legal and business issues

More Reliable Compliance

  • Proactively and consistently demonstrate compliance with regulations and client obligations
  • Quickly determine consequences of events such as counterparty rating downgrades or default
  • Accessible, searchable data means firms are ready for new and changing regulatory burdens

Reduced Risk

  • Improved documentation quality means less error and oversight
  • Rapid analysis of key legal terms in a crisis or triggering event, enabling client-specific responses
  • Ability to closely manage non-standard language and terms
  • Uniformly apply rules and conditions to complex non-standard agreements

Increased Efficiency & Knowledge Sharing

  • Save time and cost through streamlined generation of high-quality, consistent documentation
  • Build a portfolio-wide playbook of best practices, standards and fallback provisions
  • Facilitate negotiation of ATEs by pulling from successful provisions used in the past
