Reduce Funding Costs and Settlement Risk with Real-time Intelligence and Payments Control

Relying on outdated, operationally intensive and costly post-trade processes that lack critical real-time payment insight or effective firm-wide payment controls, market participants are often unable to effectively respond to changing market conditions. As a result, intraday funding decisions are taken without an understanding of current payment balances and available liquidity, and outbound payments continue without the reassurance that counterparty payments have been reciprocated. This can generate funding challenges and unnecessary settlement risk exposure.

Core-Payments has been designed to overcome these challenges and bring complete visibility and control to the end-to-end post-trade payment process. Reconciling payments in real-time, Core-Payments provides users with access to the real-time payment intelligence needed to make informed intraday funding, liquidity and risk management decisions and efficiently orchestrate the controlled and automated release of safe cash settlements across all business areas and payments flows.

Reduce Intraday Funding Costs and Capital Footprint

The Real-time reconciliation of inbound and outbound payments on a statement vs ledger basis enables Core-Payments to provide users with real-time visibility of funding balances and available liquidity. Armed with this insight and increased netting capabilities, users can then orchestrate and optimise the timing and sequencing of wholesale payments and settlements to reduce intraday funding costs.

Enhanced Risk Management, Supervision and Compliance

Reduce settlement, operational and payments risk exposure with automated collaborative workflows, supplemented with alerts, direct access to real-time and historic settlement data, and no-code rules for increased payment control. By creating or editing these rules users can immediately stop, and manage the controlled release of, all required payments and settlements in times of market stress.

Reduce Operational Costs

Automating previously manually processes such as payment reconciliations, pre-settlement affirmations and payment netting, Core-Payments allows banks to increase operational efficiencies, reduce the costs associated with managing breaks and fails, and retire legacy technology stacks in a controlled manner.

Revenue Growth Opportunities

Scale your business without the capacity constraints often generated by manual and outdated operational and risk processes and legacy technologies.
