Currenex extends allocation and settlement functionality

Multibank currency trading portal Currenex has added improved allocation and settlement features to its FXtrades platform.

The independent corporate foreign exchange trading service says the new features will aid flexibility and ease of use for participants.

The system now provides both counterparties with immediate access to settlement instructions and allocation details at the time a trade is executed. Members may store as many settlement instructions as needed and add their initial or new instructions via an upload or the FXtrades user interface. Each instruction allows for either two or three tier settlements, supporting intermediary banks, and includes all required Swift messaging fields to create a complete record that is ready for transfer to settlement and messaging systems. Details of transactions with attendant settlement instructions may be entered into treasury workstations or other back-end systems.

The new allocation features enable corporates and funds to specify default percentages for allocations per fund or sub- entity. Defaults may be applied to any trade in a single pre-trade step. The allocation functionality delivers the ability to define the allocations via three ways: prior to trade by an upload, in the FXtrades user interface or post-trade through the FXtrades user interface.
