--Critical Resource for Municipal Time of Trade Disclosure Obligations--
CHICAGO, Oct. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TMC Bonds and Lumesis, Inc. announced today that they have signed a strategic partnership to offer Lumesis' DIVER Advisor suite of tools to TMC's network of 5,000 traders and over 125,000 financial advisors. The software suite includes: (1) The Municipal Bond Report, (2) Compliance Reporting Engine, (3) Portfolio Alerts, and (4) Credit Notes.
Lumesis ties together disparate data into dynamic reports that are fully integrated into TMC's Trader and Financial Advisor Workstations. According to Thomas Vales, TMC's CEO, "given the MSRB's recent SEC filing on proposed rules governing time-of-trade disclosure, clients are looking for implementable solutions to fully satisfy their compliance needs and Lumesis offers a leading product to streamline the review process. DIVER Advisor comprehensively covers 1.4 million CUSIPS from all 54,000 active muni issuers and leverages over 250 datasets from more than 50 underlying sources."
Gregg Bienstock, Lumesis' CEO comments that "delivering DIVER Advisor through TMC offers our joint client base the ability to efficiently and cost-effectively deploy our comprehensive platform into their workflow. As the MSRB clarifies the regulatory requirements around time-of-trade disclosure and suitability, the product can be dynamically updated to comply with changing regulatory obligations. Our integration with TMC offers clients the ability to tailor the configuration of Advisors' compliance and portfolio surveillance with a robust reporting engine."
James Wangsness, TMC's COO, further notes that "we were impressed with Lumesis' engagement of regulators and industry professionals in refining their solutions. Client receptivity has been encouraging as DIVER Advisor solves real world issues for Financial Advisors, Traders, and Compliance/Trade Surveillance staff in a one-stop and time efficient manner. Given that the fixed income community is assembling today in Chicago for the Bond Dealer of America's National Fixed Income Conference, it is an opportune time to assist the marketplace in enhancing transparency on behalf of underlying investor clients."
