where we need your input

Get involved with Financial Objects - Product Control Common Template Project

  • We are looking for more participants to test sample data using the linked guidelines and sample template from Legend. The vision is to standardize the process of data exchange between banks and vendors by setting up an industry-approved common template and link them via Model to Model mapping in Legend to reduce friction, promote data standardization and reduce the on-boarding costs for banks in the consensus pricing industry.
