Clients

Built for professionals managing financial products

Product specialists

Product managers and their support colleagues in Compliance, Legal, Risk, Operations and any other department handling product events and related activity. Some of these product specialists carry a personal liability for poor product governance.

Senior managers

Senior managers require a real-time understanding of the entire product set, including the back book. They also have stringent efficiency targets.

Client facing teams

Front-line teams are expected to have a deep knowledge of the entire product set and exactly match product to the needs of their clients. Their clients require timely responses and superior service at all times.

Everything you need, in one place

Product management made easy

Thousands of events, data, decisions, and documents are produced during the lifecycle of these products. They come in inconsistent formats and often are handled through highly manual processes. Kore addresses these issues head-on with a rapidly scalable turn-key digital service specifically designed for professionals handling financial products.

Product information all in one place​

Front office teams and support functions need a single entry point to all internal and external product information. Easy to navigate, always up to date and available on the go.​

Digital evidence of product governance​​

Product governance oversight and lifecycle management are at the forefront of regulatory scrutiny. Kore’s digital tools guide professionals through product governance processes, enabling them to avoid errors, establish best practices, and build an audit trail that is all-inclusive and retrievable at the touch of a button.

Product dashboards and analytics​

Cross-functional visibility across all product sets and the end-to-end lifecycle is key to strategic decision-making. Kore gives you perspective and depth of information that is easy to access and interrogate.

Compliance requires evidence

“Most asset managers had poor record keeping. This may have been due to a lack of formal process in product design and oversight. Critically, where firms did not document challenge, decisions and checks, they were unable to recall what activities had taken place. The inability to evidence robust challenge and oversight should raise concern for those individuals accountable for this activity (the focus of the new Senior Management and Certification Regime) as it leaves firms and those accountable unable to evidence challenge and oversight”.
