London, UK – 13 September, 2018 – Following the success of UnaVista’s Partner Programme for financial services software firms, UnaVista is pleased to announce its expansion with the launch of a new pillar for consulting firms. UnaVista has already welcomed eleven consulting firms - Bovill, Citihub, Compliancy Services, D-Fine, Duff & Phelps, Excelian, Luxoft Financial Services, Gordon Dadds Financial Markets, IMP, K&E, Leading Point and TALOS - to the programme.
The introduction of this new pillar will help consulting firms to provide a range of advisory services across EMIR, MiFIR and SFTR to their clients. By being part of UnaVista’s Partner Programme, these firms can access a wide pool of resources, knowledge and skills to augment the services that they currently provide to their clients. The consulting module will allow a wider set of market participants to work with UnaVista. Likewise, the partner programme provides clients with access to a variety of consulting firms with deep knowledge of UnaVista’s solutions with whom they can work.
UnaVista’s Partner Programme launched in February 2017 and now incorporates over 50 technology firms including Calypso Technology, Charles River, Eze Software and IHS Markit. The programme was instrumental in helping a significant number of firms prepare for MiFID II reporting go-live. It is now helping partners and their clients prepare for SFTR, further upcoming regulations and amendments to existing regulations.
“Joining hands with UnaVista and the London Stock Exchange further strengthens our regulatory reporting capabilities,” said Chris Beer, EMEA Regulatory Practice Head at Excelian, Luxoft Financial Services. “Here at Excelian, we leverage our collective product, technical and regulatory knowledge to help clients deliver compliance with a broad range of financial regulations. Combining this approach with the UnaVista platform, its deep repository of reporting data and the marketplace expertise of the London Stock Exchange makes this an ideal partnership.”
Wendy Collins, Managing Director, Global Head of Partners commented: “Creating a new pillar within the Partner Programme specifically for Consultants was the next logical step. Providing consulting firms with access to a rich source of UnaVista content and knowledge enables them to increase the value they bring to clients and help clients to derive more value from UnaVista solutions. In addition, the original programme for Software Vendors continues to grow and add value to both our partners and our clients. The two pillars are complimentary and increase the benefits we bring to our mutual clients.”
