Executive Summary

Our client is the investment division of a prominent multilateral development bank, which finances sustainable projects in Latin America and the Caribbean. The institution is engaged in building its capital corpus by dynamically investing in varied instruments such as equities, government bonds, corporate bonds, interest rate swaps, money market mutual funds, and short-term instruments.

The institution's treasury management department targets above-average market returns in its asset liability management function by leveraging securities reference data from Bloomberg and other securities authorities.

For smooth and timely facilitation of settlement of trades in asset transactions:

  • Accurate pricing information must be shared with settlement and portfolio management systems.
  • Position information must be shared on a timely basis with General Ledger Accounting and Portfolio and Risk Management systems.

Core Business Challenge

In the digital era, the institution's treasury management division was still manually executing a wide range of functions, including order processing, trade ticket tracking, custodian interface, and transferring data to downstream systems via spreadsheets.

This approach resulted in:

  • Duplication of master data Duplication of master data
  • Delays in receiving critical information required to make trades that delivered higher returns Delays in receiving critical information required to make trades that delivered higher returns
  • Massive consumption of human effort and time to complete all updations and settlement of trades Massive consumption of human effort and time to complete all updations and settlement of trades
