In the tumultuous world of asset management operations, where every trade counts, the spectre of failed trade management looms large. In the wake of the Central Securities Depository Regulation (CSDR) settlement discipline regime, the consequences of failing trades are something firms need to address. Efficiencies and controls within Asset management firms are in the spotlight, and without a vigilant guardian, the risk of non-compliance is a concern. Enter SureVu – the software system designed to help you avoid failed trades rather than manage them.
The Perils of Failed Trade
The CSDR settlement discipline regime has heavily impacted the landscape of securities trading. With more stringent measures in place, financial penalties for failed trades may escalate to previously unseen levels with the arrival of the T+1 settlement cycle. Firms failing to meet their settlement obligations face penalty fees and a harmed reputation.
Where governance and controls are key, ignorance is not bliss; it’s a dangerous gamble.
The consequences of failing trades are not limited to financial losses; they extend to the credibility and professionalism of an asset management firm.
SureVu: The Beacon of Assurance

Its real-time monitoring ensures that you stay one step ahead, shielding your firm from the issues of settlement failures.
