Financial Services

Capital market operators need to invest in cost effective technology that will improve their operational efficiency and risk management capabilities while also delivering significantly improved and more transparent experience to their clients.

Zanibal has a suite of low-cost, easy-to-implement, and standards-based solutions for financial service operators. These Order to Settlement solutions automate the interactions between brokers & asset managers, their clients, exchanges, trading partners, banks and other market participants. This eliminates manual effort and errors, significantly improving turn around time and visibility while also saving time and money for buy and sell side participants.

Some of the benefits from implementing these solutions include:

  • Having client orders captured and executed on the exchange in real-time, ensuring transparency in pricing while also eliminating any translation errors. Amongst other benefits, this helps develop the trust needed to build long lasting client relationships.
  • Self service tools (web & mobile devices) for real-time price alerts, order capture, transfer of cash funds in and out of brokerage accounts and real time feedback on the status of transactions, significantly improving the client’s experience.
  • Improved back office capabilities with features such as automated margin call management, real-time tolerance checking, order validation, automated fund rebalancing and others.
The key features of the solutions are:
