SteelEye, the compliance technology and data analytics firm and MAP Financial Technologies Limited, (MAP FinTech) which specialises in regulatory reporting solutions have announced a research and development partnership.
The partnership will focus on the two firms’ complementary areas of regulatory reporting, specifically relating to EMIR, MIFID-II/MIFIR and Best Execution solutions.
SteelEye has developed an intelligent data engine with analytics that provide insights to firms beyond the regulatory dimension with an ability to view, search and analyse structured, unstructured and semi-structured data through a single lens. This makes regulatory reporting simple and seamless to implement, providing a competitive advantage to firms, whilst also supplying further specialised solutions for MIFID II/MIFIR, Best Execution, Trade Reconstruction, Record Keeping and Surveillance.
MAP FinTech is part of one of Europe’s largest financial services advisory groups, MAP S.Platis, which is a standard-setter in EMIR reporting for online brokers and one of the very first to have reported under EMIR. Since that time, MAP FinTech has focused on developing fully-automated MiFID, MIFID-II/MIFIR, FATCA and CRS solutions to complement its fully-automated EMIR reporting system. The reconciliation, validation and monitoring capabilities of its Polaris platform make it a very useful tool for compliance officers.
The respective emphasis of both SteelEye and MAP FinTech on facilitating regulatory compliance through advanced technology helps to reduce the cost, complexity and risk faced by financial markets firms. The new collaborative partnership holds much promise for current and prospective clients worldwide.
Matt Smith, CEO of SteelEye, said:
We are delighted to be working collaboratively with MAP FinTech, providing a clear aim of further improving our clients’ ability to cope with their onerous regulatory burden.
