Streamlining Liquidity Management Through Digital Transformation

Automating fee waiver calculations for a global financial firm, enhancing profitability, streamlining partner relationships, and driving growth in liquidity management


A leading global financial firm with a rich history spanning over a century, our client specializes in providing asset servicing, investment management, and wealth management services to institutional investors worldwide. With a strong focus on innovation and client-centric solutions, the client has established itself as a trusted partner in the financial industry.

Business Challenge

The client operates within the liquidity vertical, a critical segment supporting institutional investors. The client distributes funds through intermediary portals, thereby bolstering Assets Under Management (AUM) and fostering strategic partnerships. Central to this operation is the revenue-sharing model, where intermediaries receive compensation based on basis point calculations against AUM. This intricate structure necessitates meticulous management of fee waivers, which are dynamically determined based on various parameters, ensuring optimal benefits for all stakeholders involved.

The client sought a partner to help them address the following business challenges:

  • Manual Processes and Excel Dependency
    The client grappled with antiquated manual processes and heavily relied on Excel spreadsheets to determine fee waivers associated with contracted funds. This manual approach led to inefficiencies, errors, and operational bottlenecks, hindering agility and scalability.
  • Onboarding Inefficiencies
    Onboarding intermediaries, a vital aspect of expanding operations, was marred by labor-intensive processes reliant on email communications. This cumbersome method led to communication errors, delays, and inefficiencies, impeding growth and agility.
  • Risk Exposure from NAV Fluctuations
    The volatility of Net Asset Values (NAV) and fund data posed significant risks, exposing the client to potential financial losses. With fluctuating NAV and unpredictable fund data volumes, the client faced challenges in accurately assessing financial positions and mitigating risks.
