Post Trade Processing & Settlement

Reduce Clearing and Settlement Risk

The Charles River Investment Management Solution (Charles River IMS) helps firms reduce clearing-related risk by automating the post-trade process and providing centralized confirmation, trade matching, and settlement instruction workflows. 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 resulting low-touch settlement process helps minimize manual steps and reduce operational bottlenecks.

Post-trade and settlement capabilities in Charles River IMS include end-to-end confirmation, reconciliation, and settlement workflows. Bidirectional message support and connectivity with SWIFT networks expedite routing of individual trades and allocations to help ensure same-day matching and confirmation.
