Middle Office

There comes a point when fund managers feel the need to invest in technology and staff to support the middle office function. But there are issues with these investments – they’re complex, expensive, and often an unknown.   ​

At Vistra, we can provide comprehensive technological infrastructure and people to help you reduce operational risks and ensure your data is processed accurately and efficiently. It’s the most cost-effective approach, not least because our systems have been thoroughly tested over years. ​

Our services include automating post-trade activities, from trade entry through market data updates. We can provide daily reconciliation of all cash and security balances to prime brokers and counterparties, and schedule daily manager batch reporting to support fund managers in making decisions over investments. We’ll even proactively identify potential risks and take initiatives to reduce the risk of fund cash movements.  ​

Our specialist support leaves you free to focus on what you do best – making good investment decisions and managing risk.

To take advantage of the global talent pool, companies are increasingly offering stock equity to attract and retain employees. The equity is usually awarded at a low cost in a pre-IPO phase, and in some cases involves globally mobile employees. Granting stock options to expatriate employees can introduce important tax obligations and risks in the home and host countries that are sometimes not fully understood by multinational employers.
