AccessFintech, which delivers collaboration, transparency and control to the financial services industry, announces today that it has extended its partnership with J.P. Morgan to include real-time transparency to payment statuses and workflow for dividend, income and cash wire movements.
The addition of payment statuses compliments J.P. Morgan’s existing solution which provides buy-side clients visibility to real-time trade statuses in AccessFintech. J.P. Morgan’s Securities Services business was the first custodian to deliver enriched transaction data sets directly to the AccessFintech dashboard.
The post-trade transaction lifecycle is a significant driver of operational inefficiency for buy-side clients, due to insufficient status transparency and manual exception workflow with custodians. J.P. Morgan has built real-time statuses and workflow for trades and payments, allowing buy-side clients to have proactive visibility to their full suite of transaction types at J.P. Morgan.
The offering provides market statuses and enhanced commentary from J.P. Morgan on payments, including action ownership to establish responsible party for issue resolution. The solution includes bi-directional workflow so buy-side clients can seamlessly communicate with J.P. Morgan directly from the AccessFintech dashboard. These features allow buy-side clients to feel like an extension of J.P. Morgan through shared data and workflow.
The solution allows buy-side clients to remain within the AccessFintech dashboard for transaction management, which reduces the need to monitor multiple internal tools and custodian portals. It also reduces the need to call brokers and custodians to retrieve updates, allowing clients to repurpose operations staff toward more value-added functions and eliminating inefficiency and manual workflows.
“J.P. Morgan has been at the forefront of developing industry leading solutions in collaboration and data transparency,” said Roy Saadon, Co-Founder and CEO of AccessFintech. “With the additions of these new, important enhancements, the market can further optimize and streamline burdensome processes with a truly real-time view of their workflow. AccessFintech’s mission is to make financial institutions more efficient and to reduce costs. We look forward to working with the innovative J.P. Morgan team on delivering further streamlining benefits to their clients.”
“Lack of real-time statuses on payments has been a key challenge for buy-side clients, especially with increased pressure on real-time cash forecasting”, said Naveen TV, Managing Director at J.P. Morgan Securities Services. “This new functionality on AccessFintech coupled with J.P. Morgan’s industry leading operating model will help clients provide real-time insights into the status of payments, enabling better cash forecasting. AccessFintech has become an important resource for providing buy-side clients with real-time transparency to transaction data and workflow.”
