Settlement Instructions Repository

Settlement Instructions Repository

The Settlement Instructions Repository offers an automated service for central storage of all settlement instructions. It is a product agnostic service which can facilitate the sharing of instructions across all markets. The flexible upload functionality and automated email alert notifications allow users to efficiently manage their instructions process. Managerial authorization of instructions and changes ensure that instructions are tracked for data integrity and compliance.
