Syn~Ops is also available as a clearing and settlements solution for investment banks and brokers.

Tools for streamlined operations

Gives your users the tools they need to operate as efficiently as possible. Syn~Ops Custody features include:

  • Connect directly to International Central Securities Depositories (ICSDs) or local Central Securities Depositories (CSDs)
  • Match and settle instructions through your international custodian network via two-way SWIFT messaging
  • Scheduled reconciliation of holdings against custodian/CSD statements
  • Generate additional revenue through stock lending held assets
  • Easy access to a diary of announcements received from sub-custodian for all mandatory and voluntary corporate actions
  • End-to-end automated corporate actions workflow from tracking entitlements to recording outcomes and calculating Withholding Tax

Delight your clients

Boost client satisfaction and retention with time saving process improvements and value-add features. Improve service by accepting instructions through various channels and by delivering daily and monthly multilingual statements and valuations.

You can also automatically credit or debit interest on client cash and margin account balances and schedule asset quality valuations for margin clients.

Chatbot automation

Syn~Ops Custody’s chatbot integration provides a secure way for users to upload settlement instructions.

With the help of the virtual assistant ‘Syndy’, client and users are able to email settlement instruction files directly to the system without conforming to predefined file formats through machine-learning file processing.
