Control for securities

(Formerly Clareti securities control)

Automate and optimise your securities reconciliations

Securities trading comes with substantial operational risks. Trading volumes are increasing, and regulations are becoming more complex. Knowing that your securities transactions have settled on-time at the correct account and your position agrees with your ledgers is a key control and increasingly regulator mandated. Historically, with a small number of custodian relationships, this was a simple control.

However, trading and custodian relationships have considerably grown, the data from transfer agents, prime-brokers, custodians and global custodians is increasingly complex, and what was once simple has become challenging.

How do you manage risk and remain effective? How can you be sure that your systems, processes and data reconciliations won’t let you down?

Reduce the operational risks of securities trading

Built in collaboration with the world’s most innovative banking partners, Control for securities enables you to automate and optimise your securities/depot/custodian reconciliations.

Banks, hedge funds, asset managers, brokers, and treasurers use Control to reduce the number of error-prone manual interventions and increase the accuracy and visibility of their underlying data, ensuring effective securities reconciliations and quick, simple compliance at all times.

Control offers speed, simplicity and flexibility, giving business users the ability to update their own reconciliations as needed, and reducing implementation time and IT involvement.
