AxiomSL, the leading global provider of regulatory-reporting, risk and data-management solutions, today announces that Joao Serodio has been elevated to the role of Product Manager for the Trade and Transaction suite, including the Securities Financing Transactions Regulation (SFTR) solution. Joao takes on this expanded role as AxiomSL approaches launch of its SFTR solution, following the European Commission adoption of the SFTR RTS on 13 December 2018.
Since joining AxiomSL in 2018, Joao has been focused on developing the SFTR solution within the broader Trade and Transaction suite of solutions residing on the ControllerView data-management platform. The platform allows those who adopt the SFTR solution to readily extend the benefits of “managing only the exceptions” to other existing AxiomSL reporting solutions, such as EMIR, MiFIR, ASIC, etc.
“We’re quite excited to have Joao expanding his influence in the role of Product Manager for Trade and Transaction Solutions,” said Ed Royan, EMEA CEO of AxiomSL. “Joao’s experience and knowledge of trade and transaction reporting, and his specific experience with securities transactions, complements that of our established team and provides strategic guidance for addition of the SFTR component to the existing solutions.”
“AxiomSL’s focus while developing our SFTR solution was to ‘nurture’ an SFT along its lifecycle to achieve SFTR purposes for our clients,” said Joao. “The solution will interface with different source systems, both at a trade level and at the confirmation and settlement levels, enriching the trade information with reference data, and ultimately defining the lifecycle event. We foresee the potential beyond the challenges of reporting SFTR trade events for getting greater Return on Data Investment by using the AxiomSL solutions, for example, to tackle the Margin and Reuse file calculations or managing the resolution of unpaired and unmatched trades.”
