Enterprise level customers that have subscribed to a suite of SIDE’s products and services have delivered to their organizations a mid-office solution that is more effective at much lower cost. SIDE is unique because the same mid-office platform is used by the Buy-Side, Sell-Side and Custodians and has already been integrated to their various applications and systems. SIDE has addressed the information trust gap for our industry by replacing centralized (CeFI) mid-office silos with a de-centralized (DeFI) infrastructure driven by community interests.

In addition, SIDE provides dedicated operational support via it’s Keystone Fund Solutions offering. Keystone provides buy-side customers end to end fund accounting and securities reconciliation services that are fully automated and cost effective. Both Keystone and customer end users benefit further from intelligent end-user exception handling (via Recon Control) and electronic audit tracking to provide better risk management for asset managers.

Reduce your operational cost and risk.
