Boat Services partners with KiteEdge

Boat Services have announced a partnership agreement with KiteEdge to offer Apex, a next generation customisable search layer, to clients.

KiteEdge provides asset managers with the tools to find, collaborate, and leverage content across complex, multi-asset, siloed organizations and helps firms meet their MiFID II regulatory/transparency requirements.

KiteEdge’s Apex solution will be available to Boat clients by the end of Q4.

“We are pleased that Boat Services have recognized the potential of KiteEdge and appreciate the potential leverage between the two businesses in a post-MiFID II environment.” says James Flavin, CEO of KiteEdge.

Boat Services is a   provider of transparency services with operations in the finance and insurance sectors. The company, which launched in 2007 in response to the increased regulatory pressures introduced when MiFID came into effect, offers comprehensive MiFID and MiFID II reporting services to help firms meet their transparency obligations.

“KiteEdge perfectly complements our existing suite of MiFID II services for the benefit of our customers.” Says Jamie Khurshid, CEO of Boat Services.

Jamie adds: “We view KiteEdge as a natural extension of our ever-growing suite of products to help market participants deal with the challenges of MiFID II”.
