Getting ready for SWIFT 20022

The global implementation of the new SWIFT format will affect financial institutions and corporate and payment infrastructures all around the world. The new standard will provide significant processing improvements including enhanced STP, data reconciliation, cross-border interoperability and regulatory transparency.

Adopting ISO 20022 will provide financial institutions with the foundations to innovate and deliver better payments and digital experiences to end customers.

Ensuring our customers are ready for, and can take advantage of this new format, VERMEG is already setting up SWIFT templates that are compatible with ISO20022. The interface between Custodix and SOLIAM will comply with the latest SWIFT standards.

Real-time Information

Having access to accurate, real-time information is vital, especially for SOLIAM customers. In order to provide the maximum benefit to our customers, we are building connections with industry-recognized information providers Bloomberg, SIX and Ice Data.

Integration will be available by the beginning of next year.

Always listen to the market

Management of interest statement 

It is now possible to manage bank conditions and to calculate the scale of interest for single and multi-currency bank accounts.

Changes have been made to the bank account repository and to the compliance module to generate pre-trade and post-trade alerts, based on the „Bank overdraft authorization“. These changes ensure that an alert is generated when an order is created on any bank overdraft on a particular portfolio or on a pool of portfolios linked to the same overdrawn bank account.

A new feature in the bank accounts repository has been added to enable configuration of debit/credit rates and management by level of the rates. These rates can be fixed or variable including the application of an additional Cap/floor.

A new interest statement calculation batch is available with the calculation details, and also the generation of operations of contribution/withdrawal of the balance of interest on bank accounts, so that they can be reconciled with bank statements/account statements.

Improvement on Repo currency :

We have added the facility to create a Repo/Reverse Repo with a contract currency which is different from the underlying currency. All the operations linked to the Repo/Reverse Repo life cycle (pro rata of interest, conclusion of the contract, etc.) have been adapted to manage this change based on the contract.

REPO - Repurchase Agreement - type of financial transaction.

Link follow-up to an operation or asset 

The front-office user needs to link documents to an order, operation or asset. These documents can be clients’ information needed in the transaction or related to an asset. To address this need, we have enabled the ability to link/unlink follow-up to an operation or to an asset.

By using the follow-up module, front-office managers can link all the documents they need to their client files.

SOLIAM 15.0 : Improvement of matching reporting for Unit Linked

The matching mechanism of the Unit Linked cycle has been adapted (Matching_orders_neutralized_flow batch), in order to allow the matching of anticipated orders with neutralized flows. New types of anticipated orders based on new criteria in determining dates are now supported.
