The new solution is in response to clients' increasing need for faster settlement, driven by factors such as efficient collateral management and timely trade settlement confirmation for reporting. 

“In 2020, we were the first sub-custodian in Hong Kong to offer our clients real-time notification of the trade matching status. The latest solution is a continuation of our efforts to provide a complete suite of services that are as close to real-time as possible.” said APAC Head of Custody, CSS Aditya Sharma.
