SunGard's Astec Analytics has introduced reporting services as the latest addition to its solution suite to provide customers with the ability to generate reports with detailed information on their borrowing and lending programs.
Astec Analytics Reporting Services offers users the ability to create customized securities lending reports to help with independent analysis and accurate benchmarking of their program's performance. Astec Analytics Reporting Services will help customers to see customized, accurate reports about what is being borrowed and lent against which collateral and for what fees. This level of detail helps improve operations as customers can identify their most profitable counterparts as well as areas that may need attention or immediate action.
"At a time when regulatory scrutiny and expectation of good practice are so high, having the ability to build and access relevant, tailored and current reports has taken on a new level of importance. Having a robust reporting service is no longer a 'nice to have' but a 'must have' for those with the responsibility of monitoring their firms' securities lending programs." - Rebecca Healey, senior analyst, TABB Group
"Access to clear and concise reporting is essential in order to achieve transparency and mitigate risk in securities finance. SunGard's Astec Analytics Reporting Services enables users to customize their own reports, providing in-depth analysis and benchmarking to help ensure smarter trading operations going forward." - Tim Smith, executive vice president, SunGard's Astec Analytics
In addition to its new reporting capabilities, the Astec Analytics solution suite provides customers with access to global intraday data and daily summary reports of securities lending programs, helping users to identify opportunities and mitigate risks.
