Stamford, CT (PRWEB) June 23, 2015
Lumesis, Inc., a leading provider of business efficiency and regulatory compliance solutions has announced the launch of DIVER Underwriter. The solution was developed in response to new pressures in municipal underwriting resulting from the SEC’s MCDC initiative and the continued regulatory focus on underwriting practices. DIVER Underwriter leverages technology to help firms perform reasonable diligence consistent with their policies and procedures and delivers significant efficiencies allowing firms to maximize the number of deals they can bid while meeting regulatory requirements.
The company has also announced a strategic integration of DIVER Underwriter with Ipreo, a leading global provider of workflow solutions and market intelligence to financial services and corporate professionals. The two companies will now offer access to DIVER Underwriter directly from the Deal Calendar in Ipreo's Municipal Information Center.
“The launch of Underwriter demonstrates our continued commitment to delivering technology resources to the municipal bond market. With an increased regulatory focus on underwriting practices, it is critical that market participants have efficient means to address this heightened regulatory scrutiny,” said Gregg L. Bienstock, Esq., CEO and Co-Founder of Lumesis. “DIVER Underwriter delivers workflow efficiency and electronic deal files, offering users a comprehensive solution for their underwriting process. We are excited to expand our relationship with Ipreo allowing market participants direct access to Underwriter from their industry-leading Deal Calendar,” said Tim Stevens, President and COO of Lumesis.
“We are pleased to expand our relationship with Lumesis,” said Allen Williams, EVP & Managing Director, Global Fixed Income Capital Markets at Ipreo. “Enabling direct access to DIVER Underwriter is in line with Ipreo’s continued commitment to providing the municipal community with the tools they need to effectively deal with the ever-changing regulatory environment.”
