Message Automation is the leading specialist provider of post trade control solutions. We help clients manage the challenges of new regulations and market practices related to processing trades across all asset classes in OTC, ETD and FI markets. Built around a central data model in which we normalise all internal and external data our solutions include Trade Reporting; House/Client Clearing; Affirmation/Confirmation; Management of reports from CCP’s and brokers; SEF connectivity and Collateral messaging. Our solutions can be implemented individually or brought together to provide a single holistic view of post trade data flows, for internal control and external audit purposes.

Our implementation in ‘weeks not months’ ethos is one which sets us apart. The flexibility of our solutions means that we now support all asset classes, have ready-made connectivity to all major players in the OTC market, and can respond quickly to changes in this rapidly evolving environment. This in turn has enabled us to achieve our goal of having 100% of our client base happy and referenceable. We have been able to build long-term relationships with a wide range of clients including Tier 1 and Tier 2 banks and buy-side organisations.

The Message Automation team is drawn from finance and academia backgrounds. The principals of the business and most of our business analysts are ex-bankers; while the core development team are PhD level technologists, sourced mainly from our relationship with University College London (UCL), one of the world’s top ten universities. Patented technology originated from UCL research underpins our business solutions. We are also honoured to have Anthony Finkelstein, the Dean of Engineering Sciences at UCL as Chairman of our Board.

This combination of practical experience and unsurpassed technical expertise enables us to understand and anticipate the constant changes in the OTC derivatives market. For example we were the first vendor to offer client clearing connectivity to Eurex OTC; JSCC in Japan and HKEx in Hong Kong.

Message Automation is bridging the gap between business challenge and technology providing harmonisation in processes and data, which enable our clients to achieve greater efficiency and control, reduce operating costs and risk, and grow their OTC derivatives business.
