The Baton platform automates and synchronizes the movement of assets to reduce risk
and accelerate settlement certainty. With Baton’s solutions, you can optimize the use of cash
and securities, reduce settlement costs and free up assets.

It’s simply a smarter way to do business.


The Baton approach to optimizing the use of assets


We capture the assets and liabilities of counterparties through direct integration with banks, custodians and industry hubs


Our rules-based engine interacts with assets and liabilities to automate mutually agreed risk, liquidity and operating rules



We synchronize and accelerate the movement of assets and obligations, as and when needed, for any security type, in any currency


With Baton, you can address real and immediate challenges to your business performance without having to replace your existing technology. 


Liquidity and funding constraints

Illiquid assets, locked for days in margining and funding processes, threatens profitability


Operational and settlement risk

Legacy systems create risk and cost; inefficiencies prevail

Margin pressures

Firms are prevented from investing and innovating in new opportunities while securities are tied up
