Joss Technology is a specialist software solutions provider focused on Entity Data. We are dedicated to the financial services industry and built our innovative platform in response to the increased focus on regulatory compliance, risk management, and operational efficiency.

In the aftermath of the financial crisis, market participants and regulators raised the profile of Entity Data. Today, everyone agrees that financial firms need to have a clear picture of all the entities they interact with and are exposed to. Entities can be brokers, clients, counterparties, custodians, issuers and so on. However, organizations struggle to build that complete picture due to internal data silos, duplicate records and data inaccuracies.

Joss Technology brings an innovative approach to solving these problems. We provide the only comprehensive suite of tools and solutions for effective entity data management.

Rethink Entity Data!

Here are some of the questions we will help you answer:

  • How do I create a holistic view of all the entities I do business with?
  • How do I maintain client/counterparty data on an ongoing basis?
  • How do I link instruments to entities?
  • How can I achieve this goal without exploding my IT budget?
  • How can I minimize disruption to my existing workflows and processes?
  • How can I obtain results quickly?

Business drivers

Trading margins are down and cost- containment is at the forefront of companies concerns. How can we help you thrive in this new paradigm? With a robust set of tools and workflows to manage your client data, your organization will achieve both cost reduction and revenue growth that will have a positive and tangible impact on your bottom line. Here is how:

Internal data discrepancies result in communication failures between front, middle and back-office systems. Many surveys and industry studies show that, even for mid-tier financial institutions, reference data related problems generate millions of dollars in annual waste.

Data inaccuracies cause failures in trades and payments. Industry bodies estimate losses amount to hundreds of millions of dollars every year. Fix your data, reduce failures and you have saved money already.

When you experience delays in setting up new clients, it decreases customer satisfaction, affects your reputation, and puts future business opportunities in jeopardy.

The product-silo approach limits your ability to sell your entire set of products and services. Instead, a comprehensive client view allows you to carry out gap analysis on the complete business relationship and discover cross-selling opportunities.

By providing a superior client experience you acquire a reputation for ease of work/interaction. In turn, this allows you to attract new business from competitors who, for example, do not leverage their client onboarding process effectively.

With our solutions you collect and analyze valuable information about your client needs. As a result, you demonstrate you understand their specific needs as well as their organization as a whole. This enables you to develop greater levels of trust and build durable business relationships that will lead to higher client revenues.

Why now?

Having your entity data house in order is crucial:

  • Regulation – You have to comply with current and upcoming mandates
  • Risk management – More stringent risk management mandates are here to stay
  • Transparency – Calls for increased transparency are unlikely to fade away
