Automating the onboarding process with AI
Saphyre uses a patented AI technology to streamline the on-boarding process for clients by organising shared data and then automating trade lifecycle processes. This allows firms not only to assess risk faster, but also to speed up the on-boarding process by eliminating inefficiencies in the booking, confirmation, and settlement process.
“The partnership not only demonstrates our relentless focus on the client experience, but our capacity for innovation and digital growth, in particular our agile approach to the Fintech sector,” comments Gerhard Kronsteiner, Global Head of Operational Excellence for Global Markets at BNP Paribas. “By partnering with leading firms like Saphyre we aim to harness powerful, scalable collaboration solutions for the benefit of our clients globally.”
