FMC.Asset is a module subset in the FMC family that enables you to provide support for your Asset Under Custody (AUC) Clients. This is a natural extension of custody services, where AUC Clients are an additional portfolio type, with its own set of portfolio options and additional features applicable only for this type of Client.
Together with the SWIFT, Billing and integration selected modules, this is a welcome addition that allows you to expand your custody department services, with little or no additional human resources needed.
Depending on the regulative options in your country, you can handle Client transactions from the start (serve as a proxy between the Client and broker while reserving settlement funds), or after execution, taking care of settlement and clearing processes. With SWIFT import/export options, data flow can also be automated and tailored to meet your needs and local regulations.
Corporate actions are also automated, calculating actions for the relevant portfolios at the click of a button.
FMC.Asset also offers the option to register any kind of pledge over the Client’s assets (i.e. collateral for a loan), and collateral assets cannot be redeemed until the collateral ends. Collateral assets can carry a different safekeeping fee, which is taken into consideration for periodic invoicing.
Empowered with a complete billing solution, invoicing for Assets Under Custody Clients is a very simple task, since the system automatically calculates all the defined fees and prepares the invoices for the selected period.
All the reports you need to manage your Assets Under Custody Clients are included. Whether you need Client reports (invoices, portfolio statements, corporate action announcements and transaction confirmations) or internal reports (custody statement of holding, client list, various asset statements grouped by parameter, settlement reports), you can be certain that you have everything covered with FMC.Asset.
