Securities Inventory Management makes use of active forecast and position management technologies to ensure that the securities purchased by BNP Paribas Securities Services’ asset manager and asset owner clients are automatically moved at the end of every day to their domestic market, where they can benefit from advanced custody services such as liquidity and collateral optimisation.
Safekeeping securities in the markets in which they were issued helps clients reduce the number of intermediaries in their custody chain, avoiding loss of information on events relating to their assets and optimising operations.
The service also enables the automatic transfer of securities to the required settlement market in case of a sale, reducing non-automated processes and associated risks such as settlement delays.
“In today’s complex market environment, driven by the need for collateral availability, an increasing number of domestic assets are no longer held directly in their original market but through complex chains of intermediaries. This is why we have devised this new service, which makes the most of our local network, to automatically move assets back to the markets in which they were issued and mobilise them quickly wherever they are needed in case of cross-border transactions for example.
Managing cross border flows is complex and automating real-time optimisation tasks will be of significant benefit to our clients.”
