      • Managing volatility in loan settlement and closing

        In-house loan settlement often remains a time consuming process due to manual, paper-driven processes. Markit offers a flexible and scalable solution that helps loan managers automate processes as well as reduce risks and fixed costs associated with settling and closing leveraged loan trades.

        Our solution is designed to simplify and streamline complex processes around loan transaction management, from trades to transfers of ownership, and to deliver increased transparency. We help firms reduce operational and counterparty risks as well as settlement times.

        Managing risk with centralised reconciliation

        Inhouse reconciliation processes and exception management can pose a challenge for many organisations, as manual processes can result in disjointed or incorrect data and potentially lead to serious trade errors. Markit offers a hosted reconciliation solution that leverages our portfolio tracking expertise and EDM platform to streamline reconciliation processes and exception management across multiple sources.

        The managed service is designed to automate the reconciliation process by accessing and consolidating data from multiple sources, exercising complex matching rules and communicating breaks. Markit’s team of reconciliation experts can help customers research identified exceptions and manage communications throughout the entire process. This service can help firms reduce risk and costs by enabling them to efficiently outsource the reconciliation process.
