International Women’s Day 2022

 

 

Presented under the theme ‘Time to break the bias’, the discussion this year focuses on the structural gender biases and stereotypes that permeate our working norms, affecting our working environment and workplace interactions – from our hiring processes to our everyday experiences.

We possess a strong female presence in our company, with employees of all different ages, different races, and different stages in their careers. 3/7 of the senior management team are female, and 52% of our total employees are female.

Above, explore how the women and men of Leading Point try and break the bias in their everyday work-life. This could be striving to share your ideas up in a room full of people who don’t seem to value your opinion, or standing up for yourself when you feel patronised. This list goes on, and as women, there is nobody better to explain the shoes we walk in, but us!

Leading Point have joined the SME Climate Commitment

Leading Point have joined the SME Climate Commitment

 

What is The SME Climate Hub?

The SME Climate Hub is a global collection of SMEs (small-medium enterprises) that have commited to halve emissions by 2030 and become net-zero by 2050. Included in this commitment is to report on progress yearly. 

The SME Climate Hub is a network that supports SMEs on this vital net-zero journey.

 

Why we joined:

Leading Point is pleased to announce that we have joined the UN-backed SME Climate Commitment and formally committed to being net-zero in carbon emissions by 2030 (in advance of the minimum target of 2050).

We have joined the community of UK businesses tackling climate change through the SME Climate Hub. With their support, we will understand, track, and make strategic, impactful emission reductions to achieve our target of being a net-zero business by 2030.

Leading Point is committed to having a responsible, sustainable, and transparent operating model. We are excited to collaborate with other businesses on this scheme, and implement a business climate strategy using the tools created by Normative, CDP, Business for Social Responsibility (BSR™), and the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL).

We are proud to be taking the lead on climate action with the SME Climate Hub community and will be fully transparent with our progress.

 

Words from our Founding Partner and Chief Sustainability Officer, Thushan Kumaraswamy:

“Committing to a net-zero target is the right thing to do for the planet. It is also a bold statement for a growing startup. I want Leading Point to be at the forefront for fintechs who are making a climate change difference. As we grow, our impact on the environment naturally increases. I am excited to find the best ways to mitigate those impacts and share those findings with our peers.”

 

Words from our ESG Associate, Maria King:

Climate change presents both potential risks and potential opportunities for businesses. Small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) account for 90% of business worldwide. However, only a small portion of these report on their emissions due to costs and complexity.”

Leading Point is a fintech specialising in digital operating models. We are revolutionising the way operating models are created and managed through our proprietary technology, modeller™, and expert services delivered by our team of specialists.

GDFM & Leading Point Partnering for Smarter Regulatory Health Management

GDFM and Leading Point collaborate to deliver innovative and efficient regulatory risk management to our clients and through the SMART_Dash product; enabling consistent, centralised, accessible regulatory health data to assist responsible and accountable individuals with ensuring adequate transparency, for risk mitigation decision making and action taking.  This is complemented by a SMART_Board suite for Board level leadership and a more detailed SMART_Support suite for regulatory reporting teams.

We are delighted that SMART_Dash has been shortlisted in 3 categories in this year's prestigious RegTech Insight Awards in Europe, which recognises both established solution providers and innovative newcomers, seeking to herald and highlight innovative RegTech solutions across the global financial services industry.

GD Financial Markets Head of Regulatory Compliance Practice and SMART_Dash Co-creator Sarah Peaston "Centralised, consolidated, consistent regulatory health transparency and tracking is key to identifying and managing regulatory and operating risk.  I am delighted that SMART_Dash has been recognised as a new breed of solution that practically assists Managers, Senior Managers and Leadership with managing their regulatory health through the provision of the right information, at the right level to the right seniority”.

Leading Point CEO Rajen Madan "Our vision with SMART_Dash is to accelerate better regulatory risk management approaches and vastly more efficient RegOps. As financial services practitioners we are acutely aware of the time managers spend trying to make sense of their regulatory and operating risk areas from a multitude of inconsistent reports. SMART_Dash enables the shift to an enhanced way of risk management, which creates standardisation and makes reg data work for your business. We are very grateful to the COO, CRO and CFOs whom have contributed to its development and help the industry move forward”.

GDFM and Leading Point are rolling out the SMART_Dash suite to the first set of industry consortium partners progressively in H1 2021, and thereafter open to a wider set of institutions.

Glue42, the company that delivers integrated desktop experiences to financial institutions globally, and Leading Point Financial Markets, a financial services advisory and delivery partner, today announced a partnership to help clients provide a next-generation trading desktop experience.  

Sales and trading activities are inherently complex and require equally complex software applications to manage data and workflows. Due to single monolithic applications and bloated technology stacks, financial organizations today find it hard to adapt to changing user, customer and regulatory needs. Those organizations that can design and build so called ‘composable enterprises’, i.e. modular portfolios of business capabilities, are able to lead front office innovation and achieve higher productivity.

As part of the partnership, Leading Point Financial Markets will help organizations define the best vendor strategy and ecosystem architecture to enable the core of the composable enterprise and optimize the desktop for the best-in-class experience. Glue42 will provide the underlying integration platform to delivers seamless user journeys and configurable workflows.

“Together, we will provide a unique mix of world-class implementation services and software,” said Dishang Patel, Partner, Leading Point Financial Markets. “In the short term, traders will gain unparalleled speed of visibility across applications so they can focus on generating alpha. In the longer run, firms will need to purchase and maintain less hardware, which will vastly improve the environmental impact and making it easier to meet their ESG policy.” 

As a result of the collaboration, IT teams will be able to selectively replace or augment legacy systems, simplifying and automating complex processes, making for a leaner, system-agnostic and agile desktop. Front office teams will be able to interact with multiple systems and data sources directly from their financial desktops using only the best functionality of each application. This intelligent, user-driven desktop reduces noise and risk. With as much as 90 percent fewer clicks for basic tasks; traders can execute faster and generate 20 percent more alpha on average for their clients.

“The perfect storm of the post-Covid world and the evolving ‘interop’ innovation has created a period of reflection for many firms. For many organizations, the digital transformation was prematurely accelerated and the need for greater efficiency and process optimization is now stronger than ever,” said James Wooster, COO, Glue42. 

“As organizations innovate and adapt to changing business needs, and vendors continue to deliver more modular capabilities, they will need to rethink how they source and deliver business solutions. This partnership will help firms gain higher front-office productivity much faster,” he continued.

Leading Point FM forges strategic AI partnership for Anti-Financial Crime

Specialist Data-Driven Business Solutions company Leading Point FM will apply and augment Daric’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) platform to provide lean, accelerated solutions for Anti-Financial Crime to serve both established Financial Institutions and challenger FinTechs.

Firms are facing huge pressures to improve their Anti-Financial Crime (AFC) capabilities in 2019. Large volumes of data, growing regulatory requirements, poor data quality, high compliance & operating costs and customer digital experience are the most common pain points that firms experience.

With Daric’s AI capabilities, Leading Point FM will enable firms to harness the power of ML and AI to identify customer risk, dynamically screen payments against transaction history, automate periodic reviews and enhanced due-diligence processes and embed risk intelligence. The combined approach will give financial institutions deeper understanding of their clients, reduce false positives, assure compliance for new regulations and improve business KPI’s.

The partnership comes ahead of the 5th EU Money Laundering Directive, and multiple, billion-dollar fines handed from U.S and UK authorities.

“By combining our expertise with Daric’s AI and expanding our practice in London with new industry hires, we are equipping our clients with an integrated approach to Anti-Financial Crime, one that is based on real process re-imagining, domain expertise, data assets and AI-powered customer insights rather than point solutions and remediation projects which don’t deliver any meaningful business results. There is a great opportunity for firms to address money laundering, fraud prevention and cyber risk requirements with a holistic approach on the underlying data – this is precisely what the Leading Point and Daric partnership make uniquely possible for firms with substantial savings.” said Rajen Madan during a high profile trade mission of leading UK fintech companies led by the Mayor of London’s International Business Programme, with other leading UK fintech companies to India to explore growth opportunities with investors, FinTechs and Industry Leaders at the Barclays Rise Accelerator in Mumbai.

Daric CTO & Co-Founder Vasant Ramachandran added:

“We are thrilled to be working with Leading Point FM to deliver this end-to-end value proposition and increase the impact of our technology for Anti Financial crime use-cases such as client intelligence, transaction monitoring and risk management. This will allow our clients to drive automation across their workflows and to adopt risk-augmented models based upon data intelligence. Technology and process re-imagining go hand in hand.”
