    YOUR IMPACT

    The Securities Settlements Technology team maintains and develops the suite of applications supporting the global securities clearance & settlement process. These applications sit in the broader context of the overall securities trade processing architecture and as such represent an ideal vantage point from which to understand the entire flow in context, from middle office trade processing, asset servicing, funding, & client assets through to the way in which postings downstream influence the books and records of the firm.

     

    The core application, Corona, is a 100% in-house, modern Java-based application with high scalability & throughput, handling millions of transactions daily. There is close collaboration across the global team in Jersey City, Tokyo, Hong Kong, London & Bengaluru both in terms of day-to-day issues & longer-term projects. Tokyo team contributes to global application development as much as teams in other regions. There are many APAC industry changes expected to be implemented by Tokyo team in coming years, as well as many smaller internal initiatives to enable new business, create revenue opportunities, or realise efficiencies.
