common challenges and solutions

Route to T+1 settlement

When the industry loses a processing day – effective and efficient exception management and enhanced processing features are essential for timely management and failed trade governance. Salerio provides the route to the new generation trade lifecycle.

CSDR settlement risk management

Failed trade management means avoidance not reconciliation. Governance and controls are mandatory to ensure regulatory compliance with the latest CSDR changes associated with the Settlement Discipline Regime. Failed trade management, partial settlement and penalty payment processing are covered by Salerio.

The shortening of the settlement cycle will present buy-side firms with some severe operational challenges. Watch our video here and learn how Salerio can assist your firm in preparing for T+1.

Trade confirmation and local matching

Salerio provides a truly global trade management solution across multiple asset classes, dealing with both blocks and the allocation of trades. It interfaces seamlessly with DTCC’s CTM™ service to manage securities confirmation and matching events within its central hub. Local matching of trade records from counterparties supports asset types such as exchange trades futures. Foreign exchange matching and confirmation is automated via SWIFT messages from counterparties. 

Trade settlement and messaging

Salerio generates validated settlement instructions in SWIFT, email and fax formats. It validates Standard Settlement Instructions (SSI) via a locally stored database. This approach ensures accuracy, which in turn significantly reduces settlement risk in line with CSDR regulations. 

Trade tracking (failed trade management)

Salerio tracks settlement status updates received from custodians and their clearing agents via SWIFT messages, providing users with a real-time view of all pre-settlement and failed trade issues. Users can track failed trades, along with partial settlements effectively, thereby greatly reducing the risk of cash penalty fees.

We also have a standalone failed trade management system called SureVu

“It is not about managing failed trades – it is knowing when they are ready to settle.”

Cash payments management

Salerio enables users to manage cash payments alongside securities processing as part of the exceptions management processes, centralizing the management and oversight of transactions.

Salerio Modules and Connectivity

Salerio supports three business processes within the middle office operating model: confirmation, settlement and failed trade management. Within those business functions are modules performing different tasks. Salerio integrates internal platforms (order management, accounting and position keeping) and information from external parties (brokers, counterparties, custodians and interested parties). 









key benefits


Brings governance, control, and consistency to trade processes, which together reduces settlement risk and increases operational efficiency. This facilitates the management of regulatory risk, while complying with key regulation such as CSDR. 


Reduces high volume traffic to exceptions management protocols, releasing operational staff to focus on important issues. Up to 30,000 trades a day are easily managed by two or three people. 


Avoids tedious processes associated with the manual checking data from different systems, data sources and counterparties. Have a view of the complete chain of events and manage them by exceptions. With the right options and controls to hand, issues are resolved quickly, with full audit visibility. 


Salerio is not a toolkit, it is a complete, quick to implement modular solution, built on a standard model approach. Whether installed on a local network or hosted in a private cloud, each Salerio module can be installed in weeks, not months.
