Solution leverages partnership with XSP to centralize and reduce financial firms' operational costs, delivering an estimated 30% annual savings on cost of ownership

LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., Dec. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Broadridge Financial Solutions (NYSE: BR) - through an alliance with leading corporate actions service provider XSP - today announced that it has signed a large North American broker-dealer as the inaugural client to use its Global Corporate Actions Solution (GCAS) product. The combined offering introduces a streamlined way to deliver the highest-quality end-to-end corporate actions processing for financial services firms worldwide.

Rapid market globalization, rising transaction volumes and growing complexity have increased the burden on firms' corporate actions staffs and infrastructures, diminishing operating efficiency and increasing risk. As challenges persist for the financial industry in today's evolving marketplace, the speed and accuracy of a firm's global corporate actions processing can be a competitive advantage.

Key market drivers causing financial firms to rethink their approach to the corporate actions function include:

  • Improvement in operating efficiency
  • Navigation of the complexities of regulatory compliance
  • Reduction in data management costs
  • More effective management of risks
  • Faster entry into new markets
  • Enhancement of the customer experience
  • Tangible ROI

"Despite significant industry advances in automating the investment lifecycle, traditional global corporate actions processing remains outdated and is often labor-intensive, tending to result in outcomes prone to errors and inaccuracy," said Susan Certoma, President, Brokerage Processing Services, Broadridge. "Through the GCAS offering, Broadridge has a unique opportunity to enable implementation of a fully-managed end-to-end, automated process for corporate actions that reduces costs, risks and complexity, while at the same time significantly enhancing the quality of data, productivity and delivery options. Broadridge's fully-managed service model is also tailored to individual client needs, such as increased accuracy of announcements from multiple sources and timely delivery of clean events to decision makers, so we're able to provide targeted solutions for specific departments across all asset classes."

Brendan P. Farrell Jr., Chief Executive Officer at XSP, commented, "We are excited to sign our first Broadridge client to the GCAS offering. This large broker-dealer conducted an extensive analysis of both the technical and business processes, which confirmed the undeniable strength of our combined offering. In addition to leveraging SWIFT ISO messaging to further promote straight-through-processing (STP), they also see the value of our highly-configurable XSP GO!™ dashboard, which caters to the unique requirements of their retail and institutional end users. Our focus has always been on the development and support of our software. As a result of our continuous investment we are constantly expanding and enhancing the functionality of our solutions. We look forward to working with Broadridge in helping other financial institutions streamline end-to-end processing for corporate actions."

The XSP v5 solution combines state-of-the-art technology with feature-rich functionality to help manage every critical step in the Corporate Actions lifecycle. The platform is built with the industry's most advanced technology to enhance levels of STP while eliminating manual intervention. The reliance on paper notifications is reduced and the need to re-key data is eliminated. Unlike other resource-intensive and time-consuming proprietary systems, the XSP v5 platform is a flexible, proven and cost-effective alternative that integrates easily with existing infrastructures.

Since announcing their strategic relationship in March and going to market, Broadridge has been working closely with XSP to raise awareness of its combined solution among clients and is currently in talks with several other financial institutions. In addition, Broadridge has installed the application itself and has begun the process of integrating into the framework of back-office operations. The combined offering enables clients to maximize operational efficiencies and facilitate very high levels of STP for corporate actions.

This product is part of Broadridge's Managed Data Service offering, which provides a complete solution to help clients meet increasing regulatory demands for data consistency, transparency and accuracy, while avoiding the high costs and potential risks associated with a company gathering, cleansing and distributing such data on their own. Broadridge's Managed Data Service package offers a full-service processing platform in Reference Data, Client and Counterparty, Pricing and Corporate Actions that allows for streamlined delivery of high-quality, customized solutions to the mass market through a single, data-vendor neutral provider worldwide.
