Eagle Helps Clients Address Regulation, Risk Management With LEI And Cleared Swaps Support

Stocks in this article: BK

BOSTON, May 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Eagle Investment Systems LLC (Eagle), a leading provider of financial services technology and a subsidiary of BNY Mellon, announced that the most recent release of its portfolio management platform supports regulation for legal entity identifier ("LEI") and recent cleared swap requirements from the Dodd-Frank legislation.

The LEI initiative has designed a standard universal identifier for organizations involved in financial transactions. Required for regulatory reporting and global efficiency, the industry is now implementing these standardized legal entity identifiers. By adopting LEI, organizations are achieving increased efficiencies in managing entity data and measuring and managing risk. Eagle is helping firms meet this requirement by enabling them to store, analyze and report LEI for a variety of legal entities such as issuers, counterparties, brokers, exchanges and depositories.

As a result of Dodd-Frank legislation, mandates are now requiring swaps transactions to clear through exchanges to help reduce counterparty risk and bring transparency to the over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives market. Through its integrated portfolio management suite, Eagle has streamlined the processing of cleared swaps for clients through enhanced software that now captures and calculates specific deal information.

"Eagle is committed to staying abreast of regulatory changes to help our clients adapt to shifting markets and remain focused on growing their assets," said John Lehner, president and CEO of Eagle. "We continue to make substantial investments in our products to help simplify risk management and reporting requirements for clients."

Eagle is hosting an industry webcast, " A 360° View of LEI" at 11:00 a.m. EDT on May 15, where a panel of industry thought leaders will discuss the evolution of LEI and what companies need to consider to meet this regulatory reporting requirement.
