Automated post-trade processing and settlement help firms expedite trade confirmation, reduce clearing-related risk and eliminate operational bottlenecks. The Charles River Investment Management Solution (Charles River IMS) automates and centralizes confirmation, trade matching, and settlement instruction workflows, so dealers and traders, portfolio managers, compliance, and operations personnel have the same real-time view of all post-trade processing activity and data for each transaction.
The low-touch solution automatically routes orders and allocations to appropriate counterparties in real time 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.
