Securities Firms

The securities industry is highly complex,


each transaction involves many processes
and market participants: from trade
allocation, confirmation, matching and
settlement, to portfolio reconciliation,
collateral management, asset servicing
- and beyond, to reporting and trade
repositories. Trades must be accurately
executed, confirmed, cleared and settled
in a timely manner across time zones and
jurisdictions via multiple communication
channels and technology platforms in a
cost-effective and compliant way.
In this changing market, broker/dealers,
hedge fund managers, investment
managers, prime brokers, custodians,
markets infrastructures, and intermediaries,
all face common challenges. SWIFT has
been supporting the securities community
since 1987 with standards, solutions
and post-trade processing services -
connecting over 6,000 global market
participants. You will find here a selection
of courses suited to this important sector,
but SWIFT Services can help further tailor
