This requirement is even more important and crucial in turbulent times when markets are vola‐ tile and you need to value your Portfo‐ lios on a Real Time basis. Finvent offers a Custom solution that widens the scope of the Limits & Re‐ strictions checking functionality that is available in Advent’s Trade & Order Management tool, Moxy.

♦ Data integration and va‐ lidity (today data valida‐ tion is manual, leading to restatements and auditor fees)
♦ Security issues with auto‐ mated tracking of any changes made to the document by any user (today there is no auto‐ mated tracking and ver‐ sioning of the document) ♦ Complexity and time as documents need revision and need time to manage completion (no auto‐ matic workflow, exten‐
sive use of e‐mail) Clarity Systems integrates all the above functionality to provide a secure, easy to use way of completing fi‐ nancial statement reporting. As a result, risk of restate‐ ment and data leakage are minimized, while time is optimized through workflow and automatic approvals.
