Benchmark reform

Classification, organisation, de-duplication and data capture for LIBOR and other benchmark reform needs, with pre-defined models and dashboards.


Future proof your contract data management by adopting one platform that can manage your complex business as usual flows, but still provide the flexibility of custom data models and projects extraction needs.

Digital Operations

Streamline your contract data operations with a purpose built contract data management solution, simplifying adoption and helping to realise the benefits of contract negotiation platforms.

Streamlined operations


OTC Derivatives market participants need digitised data from their collateral agreements to feed into their collateral management platform.

The minimum requirement is to have the key data points needed to manage business as usual collateral operations, including key terms such as eligibility schedules, independent amounts, thresholds, minimum transfer amounts, interest and currencies.

Most operational teams type this data in directly, resulting in poor data quality and the operational overhead of re-keyed data.

Often the data being typed in does not match the underlying contract, but is translated by a person and contains operational overrides or interpretations.

Worse still, some of the data being captured is contingent upon external factors – a common example being ratings based terms. Collateral systems will normally contain a snapshot of the data, derived from the point in time that it was entered. In times of economic turbulence (financial crisis, COVID-19) it is common for ratings to change. The collateral management system rapidly becomes outdated and the data incorrect, often with material financial consequences.


Our APIs give complete flexibility to connect to in-house and third party solutions


Total cost of ownership is reduced and crisis management becomes straightforward

By extracting the full detail of the contract and linking to the underlying scan data quality and trust remains high.


Record Keeping

For financial institutions regulatory compliance has become part of business as usual since the financial crisis.

This takes many forms, from minimum record keeping requirements in Europe and the US (BRRD, QFC), through margin reform (initial and variation margin) and more recently benchmark reform (LIBOR).

Each of these challenges shares a need to access legal contracts and process them in some way.

Much of the work ends up being duplicated – after all your collateral agreements have already been processed to feed operational systems and your master agreements probably got looked through last time there was a crisis.

For most organisations, each new regulation is handled as a new challenge:

  • Find the affected scans
  • Sort them.Search them
  • Remediate them in some way

With Lyncs this inefficiency is removed. Load your documents up and process them once….making the next challenge simple.

Pricing, optimisation, analytics

Risk & Trading

Our software was conceived during the financial crisis. The need to have accurate, detailed and relevant information available very rapidly is a fundamental requirement for any business, but especially so in a crisis.

Unfortunately, it is only in a crisis that the lack of a good source of this data becomes apparent.

In-house and third party software containing a representation of these clauses is discarded in favour of teams working nights and weekends to search through scanned contracts, to answer key questions relating to the crisis:

  • What is my exposure to ….?
  • What happens if my credit rating is downgraded?
  • What happens if my counterparty’s credit rating is downgraded?
  • What happens if interest rates turn negative?
  • Do I have Force Majeure clauses?
  • What termination rights do I / they have?

Our software helps our clients answer these questions confidently, without resorting to basic search. Providing the data you need, when you need it, with drill down directly to the underlying contract.

By fully digitising the legal agreement data it is easy to react to market events such as rating downgrades or collateral liquidity challenges.

Full granularity of non-cash collateral schedules including concentration limits paves the way for optimisation of collateral allocation.

Granular capture of all clauses, including interest, thresholds, independent amounts, minimum transfer amounts and re-hypothecation rights allows better pricing and management of risk.

Contract lifecycle Management

Contract Data Management

Our software allows you to capture and manage data from any contract or document. We cater for the highly specialised needs of capital markets, but the platform can rapidly support any contract data need, in any domain.

Store and manage your supplier, commercial contracts and policy documentation, establishing alerts on key review, obligation and audit dates.

Create a system of record for published versions of internal policies.

Link ‘alert’ triggers to passages of text within documents. Full granularity on date recurrence, with unlimited custom alerts and fine-grained control on tagging, classification and notification.

Relate relevant documents both within the system and to external stores of ‘working’ documents, such as MS OneDrive and other vendor stores.

Use Alert dashboards to visualize and manage date-based obligations such as contract auto-renewals, reviews, payment and other dates.

All your contracts, organised, searchable and with reports, dashboards and alerts.

Market and regulatory driven projects

Benchmark Reform

While uncertainty remains about the migration path from LIBOR, EURIBOR and other rates affected by the reform, there is no doubt that change is inevitable.

The one part that is certain is being able to identify which of your contracts are affected:       

They reference one of the rates;
They will not have terminated before the rate ceases to be available;
The fallback in the case of the rate being unavailable does not properly account for this eventuality.

Our LIBOR module is designed to help with exactly this problem.  The new module includes ready to use models for commonly affected document types such as loan agreements, derivatives documents and trade confirmations and includes simplified onboarding, classification and machine learning and rules based clause detection, backed by the Lyncs contract data management platform.

Future Proof

Lyncs lets you manage your remediation projects in the same platform you use to future-proof your business-as-usual operational contract data management. 

The value gained from categorizing and digitizing your scans as part of IBOR forms the foundation for further processing.  Continued single-use remediation projects are largely a waste of precious time, money and resources.  Use Lyncs to break this cycle.

Lyncs is designed as a fully functional operational contract data management platform.  See our Trade documentation fact sheet for details on our processing modules for derivatives and other trading documentation to gain accurate, consumable data for operational, regulatory and risk management purposes.

Outstanding Value

Lyncs LIBOR platform is ready to use. With pre-built extraction you can start processing documents immediately with significant cost and time savings over alternative solutions.

Custom Data Capture


Adding support for new contract types, or customising existing ones is easy with our No-Code Template Builder.

The Lyncs platform also supports project based processing. This gives complete flexibility to run data capture and processing projects across any contract type in parallel to normal day-to-day operations. Imagine being able to deal with a project such as LIBOR or Brexit, without interfering with your business as usual trade documentation flows!

Lyncs No-Code Template Builder simplifies complex data driven extraction challenges

Digital Operations

Recent developments means that industry bodies such as ISDA, ICMA and ISLA have invested in a number of initiatives that pave the way for a digital future in documentation.

The clause libraries standardises negotiation and negotiation platforms are moving closer to ‘straight-to-digital’ – capturing as much data as possible while authoring.

Common Domain Models (CDM) provide a
common language for representing the legal agreement operational data, facilitating better vendor interoperability.

Logical Construct’s Lyncs provides connectivity with these initiatives – aiding their adoption and bridging the gap between the old and new worlds – nobody wants to have to look in
multiple places to see their contract data.

Lyncs can consume digital data from contract negotiation platforms and extract data
from legacy contracts, as well as handling contract types such as foreign language agreements and off-platform negotiations.

Once in our platform data is normalised,
allowing analytics and reporting to work across old and new alike.

With output mapping from Lyncs to CDM standards we provide a single, clean source of
data to other vendor platforms as well as in-house builds, with full traceability.
