Belfius Reduces Risk And Increases Back-office Trade Flexibility With Autonomy, An HP Company

Stocks in this article: AU HPQ

PALO ALTO, Calif., Oct. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Autonomy, an HP Company, today announced that Belfius, a leading banking and insurance institution based in Belgium, has selected Autonomy Scrittura to provide an end-to-end platform for its post-trade automation.

Belfius, formerly Dexia Bank, offers a wide range of financial services to individuals and businesses, including over-the-counter derivatives, foreign exchange, money markets and securities.

With Autonomy Scrittura, Belfius has a single platform that provides end-to-end management for its back-office trade confirmations. Belfius was previously using a range of disparate confirmation systems. The bank needed to consolidate these into a single system that would allow its end users to take ownership of key business processes such as template management, document generation, reporting and document management. The project helps make the bank's system more flexible, while also helping it adapt to increasing trade volumes and facilitate the onboarding of new products.

"Because we operate in an extremely fast-paced sector, we have a strategic need to reduce complication in the trading process, while still controlling the risk factors," said Johan Roels, head, Transaction Services and Organization Financial Markets, Belfius. "Autonomy Scrittura helps us cut through the complexity and reduce both our risk and costs, and gives us a single platform to meet our present and future needs."

Through the implementation of Scrittura, Belfius has been able to substantially reduce processing times for all trade types. Scrittura also has helped to mitigate risk through end-to-end management of trade documents, and has enabled end users to take control of key activities. Belfius' users directly maintain trade confirmation templates in four different languages and, with Scrittura, have been able to reduce the number of templates from more than 200 to just 75.
