Sapient Global Markets Facilitates Compliance with Swaps Data Reporting
Rules with New Hosted Version of Compliance Management and Reporting System
Hosted CMRS helps bridge the gap between internal trading systems and required
reporting to Swap Data Repositories for all asset classes
BOSTON -- September 5, 2013
Sapient Global Markets, a division of Sapient (NASDAQ: SAPE) has today
announced the availability of a cloud-hosted version of its popular Compliance
Management and Reporting System (CMRS). CMRS allows firms to collate vast
amounts of data from disparate systems, apply reporting eligibility logic,
translate it into the destination message format, and deliver it directly to
Swap Data Repositories (SDRs) such as The Depository Trust & Clearing
Sapient Global Markets will offer CMRS as a cloud-based solution that enables
firms to quickly build, deploy and manage applications across a global network
of datacenters. CMRS directly addresses OTC swaps data reporting requirements
from regulations including the Dodd-Frank’s Title VII, European Market
Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR), and the Regulation on Energy Market
Integrity and Transparency (REMIT).
In this age of new regulatory requirements, many banks no longer want to run,
support and maintain technology and prefer the speed and flexibility of cloud
solutions. As a hosted solution, CMRS establishes a common enterprise platform
to manage and publish reporting requirements to various regulatory agencies.
It enables customers to configure reporting rules, manage varied data sources,
apply filtering, exception and aggregation rules and configure destination
reports in the required format.
“The global regulatory overhaul of recent years caused compliance initiatives,
and thus the need for compliance technology,” says Sang Lee, managing partner,
Aite Group. “A good compliance platform must navigate many challenges in order
to generate accurate and consistent alerts as well as the specific key
features a system must have in order to remain competitive.”
Designed for firms doing business across borders, CMRS connects to all major
trading and risk management systems that process high volumes of swaps and
other OTC products. It is SDR agnostic and is the only system to date that
collects and normalizes data from multiple sources before transforming it into
formats accepted by regulatory reporting destinations. It is this end-to-end
capability that ensures firms concerned with swap data reporting have a single
view of compliance regardless of operating model and required reporting venue.
“The emerging global regulatory picture for portfolio and investment
management requires greater efficiency in operations and client servicing,
both in Europe and in the United States,” said Arun Karur, vice president,
Sapient Global Markets. “Our hosted offering for CMRS enables our clients to
quickly and cost-efficiently centralize their external communications and
compliance efforts to achieve a single view of their compliance status. This
functionality combines a streamlined method for identifying trades to be
reported and translate data from multiple sources into the format required by
each of the different regulators.”
Today’s release comes on the heels of a recent announcement highlighting CMRS’
portfolio reconciliation functionality.
