Services for FS Firms

B.I.S.S. Research has been providing independent unbiased information on technology and services used by Financial Services Firms for the last seven years.

The aim has been to bridge the gap between what the buyer wants and what vendors provide. To that end the B.I.S.S. Benchmarking and Accreditation process was born.

This information has been instrumental in helping users to confirm or help them determine which provider is the best fit for their business requirements.

B.I.S.S Research is now extending this service further, specifically in the area of corporate actions, where they are acknowledged as probably the most highly informed in the market today.

Corporate Actions Advisory Service

B.I.S.S. Research can provide advisory services to financial institutions for the selection of Corporate Action systems or to assess internal system developments plans to automate Corporate Actions processing.

The extensive data bank of information built by B.I.S.S. Research created from almost a decade of research assessing the Corporate Actions market can by a vitally important ingredient for financial services firms in limiting the cost and risk of procuring the right system for their business requirements.

Equally the data bank of information created through the exacting benchmark process over the last decade provides a generic industry benchmark for financial services firms to measure their own business operations and functional requirements against the generic industry requirement of either an Asset Manager, Wealth Manager, Broker Dealer or Custodian.

Training Courses

B.I.S.S. Research recognises the importance of having a well informed work force and due to the current financial crisis many firms have had to cut costs and unfortunately let a number of experienced staff go.

However, it is crucial that the Corporate Actions department is staffed by people who fully understand Corporate Actions Processing as the Operational Risk to the company can be huge if there is a breakdown in this department.

Much has been written about the a lack of experienced people available for the Corporate Actions Department and as such many companies are existing on one or two experienced staff surrounded by inexperienced temps. These experienced staff are often unable to spend the necessary time educating these temps, so B.I.S.S. Research has put together a comprehensive 2 day Corporate Actions Course which can be delivered in-house, or externally as required.
