It can minimize actions to reduce time, maximize available resources, and increase capacity. The result: improved performance, reduced overhead and enhanced client satisfaction. QED creates an automated flow of information and activity across systems, business units and functions—adding simplicity and efficiency to order and execution management. Automation, real-time integration and secure, configurable connectivity support straight through processing from the trading desk through to settlement and accounting.

Control, reliability and an intuitive interface complete the solution to create a fully automated environment.

Superior Data Management and Control

Asset management is a complex financial process that requires information to support daily mission-critical decisions. But, information adds value only when it is complete, accurate, timely and, most importantly, available. QED’s financial data management philosophy is guided by one critical paradigm—the single version of the truth. Every user in your firm leverages the same information in different ways to support optimal execution of their roles. As a result, you have absolute confidence in the accuracy and validity of your portfolio valuations.
