12:00 PM EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES: Predicting Trade Settlement Risks Through Predictive Analytics and RPA to Save Time For Value-Add Tasks and Minimising Trade Risks

BNP Paribas has developed Smart Chaser, a trade matching tool built to automate trade processing services such as predicting trade settlement risk and benchmarking broker performance. This process provides BNP Paribas’ clients the ability to predict the likelihood of a delayed trade matching, speed up and simplify the post trade process and remove the need for manual intervention. Additionally, BNP Paribas has understood that high volume and repetitive tasks are quick wins with automation, however through their trials and journey, they have found that not all ideas raised would make strategic business cases. Realising this, BNP Paribas is able to venture into intelligent automation confidently, through establishing the right framework and training to empower its workforce with the right knowledge, approach and tools. In this session Mark will provide insight into:

  • Building a matrix to identify which process is a legitimate user case Training and managing teams to take ownership of ideas to push improvement
  • Using machine learning and predictive analysis to deliver risk management services
  • Rolling out the Smart Chaser tool on a global scale will have a significant impact of streamlining the middle office operational process
  • Setting the right education and training process to be agile from initial pilot phase to deployment
