London, 23 June 2020 – Duco, the global provider of self-service data integrity and reconciliation services, and Murex, the leading provider in trading, risk and processing solutions for treasury and capital markets, have teamed up to provide clients with a comprehensive data reconciliation solution enabling improved automation and straight-through processing across a range of asset classes.

Murex is committed to bringing innovative solutions to its 50,000 users who rely on MX.3, Murex’s platform, to support their daily business activities.

Through this partnership, MX.3 data is natively available in Duco’s cloud-based SaaS platform allowing Murex clients from the sell side or the buy side to easily perform key reconciliations related to their security, collateral, cash positions and progressively additional financial objects. This enables MX.3 users to benefit from the following:

  • Plug and play – users can seamlessly upload data from MX.3 into Duco’s SaaS platform and run reconciliations in a matter of minutes, with no coding or development needed
  • Machine learning – Duco’s machine learning functionality greatly increases reconciliation setup speeds while reducing exceptions and manual interventions
  • Smart workflow – exceptions can be automatically labelled and assigned to individuals or groups, while users can take action directly from the MX.3 dashboard

Murex is constantly investing in MX.3 to simplify operations, increase automation and reduce operational risk. Sitting at the core of a client’s capital markets infrastructure, MX.3 allows clients to seamlessly leverage Duco’s innovative data reconciliation and integrity services thanks to its openness and ease of connectivity.
