Settlement failures are a continuous problem for banks involved in money markets and foreign exchange. The breadth and depth of their existing IT systems and the solutions that support clearing and settlements are inevitably tested by the increased speed with which transactions must be processed.

In addition, the introduction of complex products, the focus on risk management and the changing regulatory landscape are all driving the need for improvements in mid-to-back office operations.  Levels of speed, automation and accuracy are fundamental to stay ahead of the competition in this fast moving market.  IBAS GMF is helping customers address these and the many other issues affecting their systems' performance.
