 It Speaks Message-to-Message During the Current Day, T

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (September 21, 2015) – The September 16th letter from the Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Mary Jo White to the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA) and Investment Company Institute (ICI) clearly shows a commitment to working with industry participants on their two-day settlement cycle (T+2) initiative to meet the proposed goal of third quarter 2017.  This support was acknowledged by the participants at SIFMA’s T+2 Symposium: The Road to a Shortened Settlement Cycle held in New York the next day.

Shadow Financial Systems’ post-trade processing solution ShadowSuite is T+2 and T+1 ready.  ShadowSuite is not a legacy system. Utilizing the latest technology, ShadowSuite speaks message-to-message with the clearing corporations and external systems during the current day, T, and does during the current day, T, what its legacy competitors’ systems do during their overnight batch-cycle. And unlike competitor legacy systems that kick users out while running the overnight batch-cycle, ShadowSuite allows user access to the database while it runs its much smaller end-of-day cycle of truly inter-day items like valuations, unrealized P&L and bond interest accruals.   ShadowSuite users maintain 24 x 7 access to their firm’s database and can utilize its on-line historical research capabilities.

Donald Marino, CEO of Shadow Financial Systems, commented, “ShadowSuite is the industry’s modern-day alternative to the old guard back-office service bureaus. It truly is a cost effective real-time post-trade processing solution that speaks message-to-message with the clearing corporations keeping the client up-to-date throughout the current day. Its exceptions based real-time trade comparison allows client reconciliation departments to go home on trade date clean realizing the T+2 initiative goals of minimizing settlement risk and exposure.”
