Broadridge to Target Counterparty Data

Having teamed with GoldenSource and IBM for the initial launch of its global managed reference data solution to provide instrument reference data (Reference Data Review, May 2007) Broadridge Financial Solutions, formerly ADP Brokerage Services Group, is leveraging the expertise and functionality that exists in the GoldenSource product to launch a counterparty data service in Q1 of 2008, according to the vendor.

Commenting on the intention Richard Stumm, vice-president of business development, Broadridge Financial Solutions, says: “We believe that both instrument and counterparty reference data are key pre-requisites for enterprise data management (EDM) and specifically enterprise credit/risk management.

“By way of an example, one of the key drivers for EDM is enterprise risk management and counterparty risk is a critical component of a firm’s risk controls.

Having the ability to go from issue, to issuer, while understanding the hierarchical relationships with a counterparty’s legal entities is what is required in this space,” he adds.

Having been part of Broadridge’s strategic partnership plan from the start, according to Stumm, progress is being made on the second phase of the offering having created a strategic partnership and built a hardware and software platform in its Tier 4 Data centre. Earlier this year, Broadridge started looking at vendors providing counterparty data solutions and the key pieces of the development that remain include the finalising of partnership agreements with appropriate data vendors and the execution of a proof of concept.
Stumm says that with the new offering: “Clients will have a centralized ‘managed’ service for gathering, scrubbing and distributing a consistent definition of a counterparty across their enterprise.

A task that is a commoditised function within a firm can be outsourced, allowing the firm to concentrate on those things that differentiate themselves in the marketplace.”
