NEW YORK, October 5, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Information Mosaic, a global provider of post-trade automation solutions, will headline as a key speaker at the FTF's 4th Annual Corporate Actions Processing Event 2010. Gerard Bermingham, Vice President of BusinessStrategy, Information Mosaic, will lead a discussion entitled Corporate Actions - Is There an App for That? on applying mobile technology to corporate actions.
The evolution of the regulatory environment, including the signing of the Dodd-Frank Bill, has emphasized the need for greater transparency into corporate actions data and events. Compliance is a priority, with dedicated monitoring at each stage of the trade process. However, with an increasingly mobile workforce, financial institutions need to equip executives with the technology to tackle post-trade responsibilities on-the-go.
Gerard's session, at 1:15pm on Wednesday, October 13, will focus on how mobile technology can be applied in a post-trade setting. Mobilization can reduce key post-trade pain points including the burden of interpretation when processing corporate action announcements and keeping up with high-speed demand from the market. For example, the flexibility for portfolio managers and clients to make informed decisions based on real-time data, right up to the deadline, while on the move will reduce the operational challenges around the decision process. In this way mobile technologies are becoming innovative tools to overcome corporate actions hurdles.
Mobile devices have evolved into viable business tools. As adoption in the financial sector increases, firms will need to aptly prepare and understand how mobile technology can enhance customer service and improve efficiency in the post-trade environment, said Gerard Bermingham. Mobile devices will become a crucial link to Web-based corporate actions systems, so institutions need to ensure they can provide suitable functionality and security for executives on-the-go.
The full-day event will draw a select audience of key senior operations professionals from across the financial services sectorincluding BNY Mellon, Deutsche Bank Securities, JP Morgan, SWIFT and Vanguard.
