  • Case Example - Company Y, Libris Crest

    (We respect the wishes of Company Y to remain anonymous for its own publicity shy purposes)

    West End Based Discretionary Private Client Manager, Company Y, with over 2500 clients under management runs an efficient back office process but relied on the Crest GUI for Euroclear trade notifications. Increasing trade volumes soon highlighted the need for automation to end the burden of dual input.

    Company Y investigated the market for Plug and Play Crest Solutions. Exact were contacted and asked to provide a proposal, including timescales and costings.

    After narrowing the selection down to 3, Exact were asked to implement a Proof of Concept trial. Test data was sent to us, and we converted this data to our Libris Financial Crest System. Access was given to the Web-based User Interface, and Company Y were able to process Crest Messages and FSA notification messaging to a demonstration SWIFT Gateway.

    As the only contender to complete a full trial and with the most attractive costings, the green light was given to implement the full system.

    Within 2 months, the system was fully operational and ready for the obligatory full Crest Trialing - which was completed successfully first time.

    Live operations commenced soon after and to data Company Y still enjoys the reliability, support and dedicated service for which Exact are renowned.

    Company Y's LIBRIS Financial Euroclear/Crest implementation included:

    • Trade data extraction from two legacy systems
    • Reconciliation and trade data import into Libris Crest Database
    • Trade data review/amend
    • Trade release
    • Deliveries/Transfers/Requests messaging
    • Matching and Settlement
    • Full ACK/NAK notification exceptions
    • CAP Limits
    • Stock & Cash Balances for multiple Crest Accounts
    • Full Duplex Stock/Cash Balance Reconciliations
    • FSA Reporting of Client Trade Notifications
    • SSH Ftp service
    • Highest levels of security
    • Support and Maintenance
