ADP Wilcoâs international system solution, the Gloss Bureau will handle Wachovia's trade lifecycle from trade capture through confirmation, position management, settlement and accounting. Traders in Wachoviaâs London office will enter fixed-income trades into Gloss and the back office staff in Charlotte, North Carolina will have access to the same system for clearance and risk management.
Wachovia will also use STP Explorer, ADP Wilcoâs real-time exception management system, to ensure control of STP workflow and minimize operational risk. STP Explorer proactively alerts users to business exceptions, providing dynamic investigation tools and subsequent transaction resubmission.
Robert Sontag, Executive Vice President, Wachovia commented, âThe Gloss Bureau is the standard for international transaction processing. ADPâs outsourcing leadership will enable us to further expand our presence in this market.â
Wachovia is currently using an array of solutions from ADPâs Investor Communication Services including proxy voting and tabulation as well as reorg announcement and prospectus fulfillment. It also uses MBS Expert for mortgage allocation in both the bank and broker/dealer.
