THE EQUILEND SOLUTION
Deutsche Bank’s use of the AutoBorrow trading functionality delivers GC to the platform in a timely and reliable manner. This alleviates much of the overall burden of security location and trade booking which would otherwise fall on front office staff. As a result they can adopt a strategic view of the business, manage relationships and focus on sourcing less liquid securities.
Following the successful integration of the AutoBorrow platform into our daily processes, Deutsche Bank has moved on to leverage the efficiencies of the operational modules including Contract Comparison and Mark-to-Market Comparison. Together, these identify issues early in the trade lifecycle and thus minimise operational risk for our clients. Furthermore, increasing the use of Billing Comparison and Dividend Comparison are serving to speed up the payment process and get money to our clients in a timely fashion.
Deutsche Bank believes that neither the projected growth of the industry nor our own plans for Global Prime Finance are sustainable without EquiLend’s infrastructure.
“EquiLend is a key factor behind the success and operational efficiency of our Securities Lending platform. The volume of business passing through our books requires a high degree of automation and robust processes. EquiLend is critical to this..”
