How Luma Improves Control and Compliance

Written by Chris Olson on Nov 29, 2018

Through advanced financial technology solutions, more and more banks and broker-dealers are saving time and improving control and compliance. This trend has now extended into structured products. With our Luma platform, banks and broker-dealers are able to set customized product parameters, issue approved product lists to all advisors, manage and review all trades, and see rep activity all in one system. 

Product approval made easy:

We designed the order-entry system with control and compliance being a top priority. Luma integrates into the trade approval process and gives Product Managers the ability to see  and track orders, file attachments, and risk assessments all from one screen. 

The order entry system at a glance:

  • Customized order approval process allows you to track orders from entry through approval
  • Separate and customized login available for Product Managers
  • Trade approval logs
  • Acknowledgment check boxes to improve compliance and create reminders 
  • File management system – Luma users can upload and preview file attachments

Luma’s advanced Order Entry System provides a simplified, user-friendly alternative for structured product trade entry. Nearly all fields on our custom order-entry system are pre-populated, leaving only two simple entries. Client-placement trades are completely automated through Luma’s integration into custodian trade-entry systems. This saves time and reduces your chance for error. Easily view, track, and export all orders in one location. Trade information is sortable by any input field, streamlining volume tracking and reconciliation. Luma’s service performs product research and due diligence allowing banks and broker/dealers to quickly compare and analyze all structures in the broad marketplace. This research helps ensure suitability of products for a given program’s client base.

Separate logins and capabilities for Product Managers and Registered Reps:

Product Manager View

Product Managers have the capability to manage files, trade approval logs and orders. This includes direct download and upload options for handling files and orders, historical logs for approval and compliance.

Registered Rep View

Registered Reps have limited functionality (compared to Product Managers) to help increase efficiency and ease. They can directly upload files, see the historical logs, and place orders for Product Managers to review.
