Globalisation 3 Is T+1 a poor relative to T+0? Processes that used to take 72 hours -> 4 hours T+1 needs real-time, or near real time processes. SEGA/Intersettle implemented real time settlement. Risk Management is quantitatively different in T+0. Risk is that T+1 is little different to T+3 in terms of: –Availability of Securities and Funds. –Existing practises (i.e. merely speeding them up) –No radical re-thinking of the whole process.
Globalisation 3 The Advent of the Global Day HK Institutional client instructs UK Broker. 5pm in HK = 9 am in UK. UK broker directs order and performs allocations. Contacts HK, by which time their trading day is over. Wait till next day to confirm allocations? Risk of mis-matched trading hours in a Global Day.
Globalisation 3 Client Cash Collection Private Clients - a cash collection problem in T+1? Not geared up for T+1 payment unless pre-fund. Broker capital adequacy may be stretched. Risk of lost business or over-stretched capital base.
Globalisation 3 Banks and T+1 RTGS / DNS systems used for “end of day” batches. Window for entries usually during early afternoon. Shortens the T+1 window. Risks arising from inflexible payment timing.
Globalisation 3 FX Deals A typical Money Market deal may still take 2 days. Eg HK$ to USD in the previous example. Some progress with Continuous Linked Settlement. Risk that some deals will not settle in T+1.
Globalisation 3 24 Hour Banking Operations T+1 creates a 24 hour global processing cycle. Global banks will need 24 hour coverage. Risk that inadequate banking services causes T+1 breakdown.
Globalisation 3 Unsettled Transactions Increase in unsettled transactions …by orders of magnitude for the 1 st 6 months? Reducing over time. Risks that breaks in an “unstable”” T+1 process will rapidly lead to large settlement backlogs.
Globalisation 3 Systems Costs Multiple systems will mostly remain in place Interface development for STP / “Just in time” Move from batch -> multiple batch / real-time Require highly resilient and fault tolerant systems. Maintenance costs are higher, especially interfaces Need faster response times to problems. Risk to T+1 Cost/ Benefit assumptions.
Globalisation 3 Operations vs Accounting Operational risk may increase in some areas. STP systems standardise operational processes....but accounting may not be fully addressed Good STP systems create accounting entries at all the right stages …do you know where these are? STP reduces processes cost and generates many reports. Risk that errors are difficult to pick up / explain and rapidly accumulate (e.g. Barings style problems)
Globalisation 3 Cost / Benefits Reducing transaction volumes need to be weighed against capital and maintenance costs. 3.3bn spent modifying processes in US. –50% by institutional Broker/Dealers. –25% by Asset Managers. A further 2.9bn spent on standardisation. Assumed that outstanding settlements cut by 67%. Risk: Cost/ Benefits may not be as attractive as thought in the short to medium term.
