AxiomSL, a risk data management and regulatory reporting technology for financial services firm, will provide an array of broker dealer (BD) and bank holding company (BHC) data aggregation and reporting solutions to Raymond James, the St. Petersburg, Fl.-based diversified financial services firm.
The partnership with AxiomSL grew out of a goal from Raymond James’ larger enterprise data strategy to automate the existing, largely manual processes and tactical functions which were straining under increasing regulatory reporting requirements.
The wide-ranging coverage will include Daily Net Capital (15c3-1) and Customer Reserve (15c3-3) calculations, along with TIC (Treasury International Capital) and FOCUS reports for the BD. In addition, the BHC will be integrating several reports for the Federal Reserve’s FR Y-9C, Call reports, and Basel Risk-Weighted Asset (RWA) calculations.
“As part of our larger goal of data management transformation, Raymond James was looking for a strategic technology partner that could help with a significant portion of our critical reporting,” says David Lesser, senior vice president of technology at Raymond James. “AxiomSL’s expertise working with complex, diversified institutions and ability to implement these solutions over a number of years was exactly what we were looking for.”
Alex Tsigutkin, CEO at AxiomSL adds: “Today, broker dealer firms like Raymond James are looking to reengineer their reporting function in their efforts to keep up with new prudential regulation demands and as part of broader institutional automation. We are very pleased to work with such a well-respected firm as Raymond James and look forward to providing these solutions for them in the years to come to meet new and evolving regulatory mandates.”
The AxiomSL change management platform enables firms to address quickly and seamlessly internal and external changes while achieving data lineage, risk aggregation, workflow automation, computation, validation and audit as well as disclosures in any format. Further, the AxiomSL’s visual business rules can be easily understood by users who do not have specialist-coding knowledge. These features give clients confidence in the automation of complex reporting business logic, data quality, governance and control in meeting stringent timeframes.
