Post-Trade / Settlements


Charles River IMS centralizes confirmation, trade matching, and settlement instruction workflows and automates the post-trade process.

Charles River IMS automatically routes orders and allocations to appropriate counterparties and ensures central or local matching via rules-based functionality. Exceptions can be centrally managed and trades quickly confirmed/affirmed – in most cases by T+0 (same day). It also has embedded support for settlement instructions and supports standard notification protocols, formats and methods.
