BNP Paribas’ Securities Services business and Bloomberg today announced an integration that brings together BNP Paribas’ multi-asset servicing capabilities with Bloomberg AIM, a leading buy-side order management system.
The solution will provide mutual clients with seamless front-to-back workflows and standardized data connectivity to support efficient trade management.
The offering delivers real-time post-trade workflows, enhanced by the bank’s middle office outsourcer data, utilizing seamless connectivity from automated trade instruction capture, to status update and end-of-day recaps. Clients benefit from increased transparency along the lifecycle of the transaction, while reducing manual touchpoints and minimizing post-trade risk and costs.
