IHS Markit enhances securities processing solution to address CSDR implementation

RELATED TOPICS​

In response to the challenges the CSDR implementation poses for firms, IHS Markit has enhanced its Securities Processing solution to provide the foundation to support the cash penalty regime, delivering multi-asset class solutions across the post-trade landscape, with integrated regulatory components enabling clients to better manage headwinds faced in an ever evolving and uncertain environment. 

Working in collaboration with clients, the IHS Markit team has developed a solution that ensures firms are equipped with an integrated solution, offering automated features that maintain efficiency and transparency.

Within the solution, fines will be held against each transaction and then posted on a net basis per underlying client once per month within the post-trade solution, with each posting processed to reflect the net cash movement from the CSD and then further netted per individual custody account. Supplementary information will be added to transactions regarding the daily fees calculated and will be presented to end clients via the client decision making portal.

“While CSDR aims to balance the responsibility between buyer and seller, ensuring both parties have equal motivation to fulfil their obligations is core,” says Richard Wilson, Director, Corporate Actions & Securities Processing, IHS Markit. “Net fees derived from a combination of matching and failing penalties on the same transaction may result in unexpected outcomes; for example, a buyer being charged a larger penalty than the seller because the  buyer failed to match a trade for a greater number of days than the seller, who was short to deliver beyond the intended settlement date.

“Different calculation methods across asset classes will also require sophisticated software enhancements, as well as new data models in order to source, and generate, the correct rates for calculation. Solutions for managing CSDR must provide real value with a high level of automation.”

The IHS Markit Securities Processing solution supports the equivalent inbound ISO 20022 messaging from CSDs, as well as outbound to end clients with the functionality to support the waiving of a given fee towards an end client where the bank is at fault but the charge was still made by the CSD. Additionally, where client cash posting rules dictate a different currency cash account should be used for fees, an FX request will be generated when the appropriate Fee Posting is applied.

“The development of these new features will seamlessly integrate the processing aspects of the cash penalty regime into our solution, with the goal of making it as continuous and automated as possible,” Wilson adds.
