We also have excellent capability in payments (institutional payments and global transaction banking, SWIFT and Treasury) as one of our senior team is an ex global leader in this space. Additionally we have really good delivery capacity around cash management and liquidity risk.
This extends across T+2 and T2S in securities, where Operations efficiency can be critical. We have one of the industries thought leaders operate this area for us.
Insourcing, outsourcing, custody, transfer agency, etc one of our senior team is a former COO and so our network in this space is exceptional).
