SmartStream Technologies, the financial Transaction Lifecycle Management (TLM®) solutions provider, today announces its partnership with Acadia, the leading industry provider of integrated risk management and margin automation services for the derivatives community – enabling increased efficiencies for the processing and calculation of interest statements for TLM Collateral Management customers and their associated counterparties.
SmartStream’s TLM Collateral Management solution will work alongside Acadia’s Interest Statements workflow, available via its industry-standard Margin Manager platform.
