Best electronic post-trade services for derivatives: JPMorgan
UBS, JPMorgan. Lehman Brothers and Deutsche Bank all offer some of the best post-trade technology available in this area. UBS and JPMorgan have data-mapping facilities, whereby the bank can recognize the format in which clients send and receive data, and remember that for all future communication. Deutsche Bank and Lehman Brothers also have systems that allow data to be fed live to a warehouse separate from their platforms. This gives clients more control over the back-office process.
JPMorgan’s system stands out, however, because it has the most comprehensive information on all the exchanges, as well as a better-than-average macroeconomic calendar. It has a splits and allocations tool, which can also check for errors in the allocations, a function that was not demonstrated by any of the other entrants.
