SmartStream and Luxoft form global alliance

SmartStream Technologies and Luxoft have formed a global alliance to help financial institutions digitally transform the entire post-trade lifecycle, enabling more efficient, streamlined and cost-effective middle- and back-office operations.

The new partnership promises to accelerate and expand the delivery of SmartStream’s solutions, leveraging Luxoft’s deep financial services domain expertise, market coverage, and premium consulting, integration and implementation credentials. According to Pierre Castagne, Global Head of Alliances, Luxoft Financial Services: “Together, SmartStream and Luxoft will help financial institutions improve operational control, build new revenue streams, mitigate risk and comply accurately with regulations”.

“Based on our successful partnership model and proven onshore/nearshore delivery expertise, Luxoft is building a powerful alliance network with market leaders and innovators across the trade lifecycle value chain,” Castagne says. “This will provide clients with specialised skills and tailored solutions that unlock agility, modernisation and cost savings”.
 
Günther Ruf, Director, Partner and Alliances, SmartStream, says: “Luxoft is exactly the type of organisation we were looking to partner with. They have the necessary global footprint, plus the knowledge and experience needed to help financial institutions utilise our solutions in optimising their back-office functions. It’s the perfect complement to our offering. Now it will be easier than ever for a business to increase automation levels, which results in a dramatic rise in STP rates and a lowering of the overall cost of processing. This, coupled with a significant reduction in the amount of overall errors, can greatly improve a financial firm’s customer service efforts and add to their reputation”.
