Clients can benefit from the functionality that Ethos AFP™ offers to provide for effective mitigation of post trade risks. Whether using the platform for direct transaction input, through STP connectivity or by transacting with DDCAP through more traditional forms of communication such as telephone, email or via a 3rd party financial messaging system, clients can be satisfied that both market and operational risks are contained.
The platform delivers trade confirmations and related trade documentation instantaneously and clients are updated as to the status of transactions through regular, automated reminders. Throughout each transaction lifecycle, the platform ensures that transaction sequences are undertaken to the client’s own specific order and instruction, both for Sharia’a adherence purposes and to ensure that all market and operational risks are mitigated to the client’s satisfaction.
‘Maker/Checker’ functionality – the platform offers, at the discretion of each institutional user, full ‘maker/checker’ functionality; authorised user profiles can be applied to ensure segregation of duties between users so as to meet the specific governance protocols of each client. Authorised user permissions can be granted on a granular basis, ranging from read-only through to full access, again based upon internal compliance preferences.
Asset inventory screening – Ethos AFP™’s asset-based inventory is subjected to DDCAP’s own responsible business based principles as well as the Sharia’a focused requirements of DDCAP’s clients and our own Sharia’a Supervisory Board.
Sanctions observance and responsible finance considerations – at clients’ direction, Ethos AFP™’s Sharia’a focused asset allocation procedures can be overlaid with requisite, regulatory driven compliance and governance stipulations, including sanctions related protocols or responsible investment and financing considerations.
