Involvement in Development of New SWIFT ISO 20022 Messages Puts Information Mosaic Centre Stage to Discuss Best Practice Application of Standards for Corporate Actions Automation
NEW YORK, April 27, 2010 - Information Mosaic, the global provider of post-trade
automation solutions, will be sponsoring SIFMA Operations 2010 on the 4th -
7th May in Palm Desert, California. Key industry players will gather to
discuss critical operational challenges such as regulation and compliance,
managing risk, reducing costs, improving customer service and providing a
platform for business growth and scale.
"Research firms have estimated that 12% to 15% of operating income is at
risk due to inefficient corporate actions processing," says Gerard
Bermingham, Vice President of Business Strategy for the Americas. "Add to
this a pressing need to reduce operational risk by cutting out the need for
manual interventions, plus due diligence requirements to improve transparency
and reporting to both regulators and customers and you have a pretty
compelling case for automating corporate actions processing. We look forward
to talking to the delegates at SIFMA Operations this year about the best
practice approaches to this challenge."
As one of the only vendors involved in the development of the
new SWIFT ISO 20022 standard, Information Mosaic has long seen the value of
standards such as XBRL and ISO 20022 for facilitating the automation of
corporate actions communications, improving quality, accuracy and timeliness
of data, and mitigating risk. With an expected cross-over period of support
for ISO 15002 and ISO 20022, Information Mosaic is committed to providing
clients with the flexibility to maintain multiple standards as necessary.
Information Mosaic will be sponsoring the Exhibit Hall
Reception at SIFMA Operations 2010 on Wednesday May 5 from 4 - 6.30pm, and
will showcase its award-winning corporate actions automation solution and
distribute its latest white papers "Issues in Corporate Actions
Administration: Supporting the Growth in Securities Lending" and "Proxy
Voting: Ensuring Complete Transparency through Automated Communication and
Gerard Bermingham, Vice President of Business Strategy for the
Americas, and Ivar Eilertsen, Director of Americas, will be available for
interviews on-site at SIFMA Operations 2010. For further details or to
