Under a T+1 settlement cycle, current operational processes will break. For example, overnight batching of trade data will not give teams enough time to investigate and resolve the exceptions. The tighter time constraints will also put huge pressure on control processes, with the corresponding increase in risk.

Firms are stuck between putting tactical fixes in place to ensure compliance as quickly as possible, or working out how to change their entire operating model so settlement can happen more efficiently in a shorter window.

In this virtual event Duco and Quorsus will show you how you can do both – without major IT projects. Leveraging our experience working with a variety of firms to reduce settlement times, we will explore the key T+1 controls you need to get in place now, and practical examples of how you can quickly move to an agile, data-centric operating model.

Watch now to discover:

Why traditional data processes won’t work on a T+1 timeframe.

The key reconciliations and controls you can implement now for T+1.

How to move quickly from an exceptions-based to a data-centric operating model.

A practical demonstration of how you can use Duco to jump start these changes.
