We leverage our financial expertise, knowledge of business processes, industry insight and technology experience to advise clients on their enterprise management priorities.
The time when a successful PMO’s charter would be defined by implementing a complex program or delivering projects on-time, on-budget and with agreed upon deliverables has faded. Given today’s business environment, these are now minimal goals. A broader set of centralized services is essential in maximizing your investments and management must realign its focus on this value proposition to the organization. Enhancing Portfolio Management to a more sophisticated model requires an ongoing mechanism to plan and deliver products and services to meet committed targets to achieve customer and shareholder satisfaction.

COR3 will use this knowledge base to effectively build a roadmap to execute and deliver a successful project.
Trade Order Advisory
Our expertise in Trade Order Advisory is anchored in the implementation of new automation for order management systems facilitating sales & trading which often requires new workflow, policies, and procedures. We can help analyze existing processes and design new workflows and procedures to properly correspond with these automation techniques. Typically, we design new processes in line with industry goals of achieving straight-through processing (STP). Workflow functionality enables efficient management of transactions as they advance through their lifecycles. Trades are captured easily, and data integrity is maintained as they move from front to back office.
COR3 provides workflow analysis and assessments to gain a more detailed understanding of overall operating efficiency and working practices of business units. We research, analyze and map the core work and process flows to provide and formulate an approach enhancing operational efficiency, and more importantly, reducing the firm’s overall risk exposure and operational cost. This approach offers the ability to recognize potential areas on which to focus and target efficiency protocols. The goal of this effort is to identify enhancements that would greatly benefit the business in its processing efficiency, focusing on those practices that are required to support transactions. This initiative is performed to optimize time and effort, and to provide solutions that will align the business units vertically (instead of functionally) and improve the interrelationship of the core business units. The delivery of this effort yields increased productivity during the execution of the day-to-day responsibilities; elimination of manual activities to the greatest extent possible and streamlining of systems flows. Upon completion of the initial assessment, we will then define the changes mandated by the analysis phase and develop the strategies and tactics to comply and implement these mandates.
We specialize in the following:
- Front, middle and back-office system integration
- Trade order management and straight through processing (STP)
- Enterprise Data Management (EDM)
- Benchmarking and Best in Class Analysis
- Workflow analysis and reengineering

What we do
Small business owners need financial and insurance solutions for themselves and their employees. We help clients meet the need to ensure the future security of their businesses by protecting a business against the sudden death of a Key Executive, funding of a partnership Buy-Sell Agreement by protecting a deceased owner’s interest and providing Section 162 nonqualified plans in the form of incentivized Executive Bonus Plans.
We offer clients a variety of options to help prepare for their leisure years. We help clients properly design a retirement strategy that protects against market volatility using a policy that offers tax advantages that no other single product can provide. The death benefit creates a financial legacy that is passed to loved ones (tax free) to protect against financial uncertainty.
Depending on the state where a client resides, probate can be both time consuming and costly.
