Financial Services

“We appointed Cenza as we were looking for a highly-skilled outsourcing partner who would work with us to control costs and improve the quality of our database. As well as the high standard of professionalism and depth of insight demonstrated by the Cenza team, their inspired solution has resulted in a tailor-made process that saves us both time and money.”

Financial institutions face tremendous pressure to comply with new and expanded regulatory regimes. In spite of the growth of dedicated compliance functions, keeping up with these changes remains a challenge.

Smart organisations are turning to outsourcing to manage high volume, routine compliance tasks, leaving their own in-house professionals more time to focus on the tougher tasks.

Our outsourced financial services include:

  • ISDA Processing
  • KYC & AML Documentation

We are also ISO certified for both quality management and information security.

Legal Spend Management

Data shows that Corporate Legal Departments (CLD) operating with inefficient, or in some cases, non-existent spend management processes have consistently spent a year over year increase of 20 percent or more on outside counsel fees over the past decade.

This lack of effective process often means that Legal invoices submitted by outside counsel are rarely challenged and are simply accepted by the CLD without fully understanding whether they are in compliance with existing fee arrangements or billing guidelines or in other case simply what they are being charged for. Our managed services capability covers a range of legal department operations:

  • Legal bill review and audit
  • Billing guideline compliance
  • Matter management
  • Firm / Vendor management
  • Timekeeper rate maintenance
  • Budgeting and accruals
  • Matter creation
  • Bill processing
  • Accounts Payable

Legal Bill Review

Our Bill Review solution provides clients with a flexible and cost effective way to improve operational efficiencies and achieve significant cost savings whilst maintaining client relationships with outside counsel.

Core features

  • Lower your exposure to risk and increase compliance
  • Rapid Deployment (typically less than one month)
  • Available as part of broad expense management program or as a standalone solution
  • Platform agnostic and can even be deployed for clients not using an e-billing tool

ISDA Processing

Advancing your bottom line without the risk.

The processing, synchronising and scrutinising of ISDA documents and master agreements can be both laborious and repetitive.
