Treasury Trades Application - Financial Services Company

462 views

Published on

Our client, the treasury department of a financial services company, used a series of spreadsheets to validate proposed treasury trades against compliance rules.

Concerned at the ever-increasing amount of time the existing process was taking, DataConsulting was engaged to develop a system to validate proposed treasury trades against pre-defined rules.

A secure, robust and flexible application was built - with reporting suite into Excel and PDF - that ensures compliance with company rules, thereby reducing risk.
