Intercompany Trading 

Intercompany trading is necessary if your subsidiaries trade with a corporate treasury center instead of trading directly in the market. The corporate treasury center then decides when and to what extent to trade for the subsidiary in the market. 

We currently support these scenarios for intercompany trading:

  • Back-to-Back Trading
  • Risk Transfer:
    • Manual Trading
    • Automated Trading

The SAP Business Rules service provides and supports all necessary configuration for our scenarios with business rules created specifically for them. 

For more information, have a look at our documentation for intercompany trading. 

Manage Counterparties

Now you can also manage your counterparties within the trading platform integration application, instead of just maintaining ID mappings.  

Nice to know: Counterparties are business partners with the role Counterparty assigned. This role identifies them as a party that participates in a financial transaction.  

With the introduction of counterparties, you can now predefine which counterparties should be used for trading before sending your trade requests to an external trading platform. Flexible rules let you define these preferred counterparties, for example based on a currency pair or other criteria. You can override the derived preferred counterparties for each trade request. The resulting list is then used on the external trading platform when requesting quotes.  

You have two options for maintaining your counterparties. You can either replicate the counterparty business partners from your back-end system, or you create new entries manually in our application. With these two options you can benefit from reduced effort to keep your mapping in syncAnd you can easily search for available counterparties, for example, when entering a phone trade or when managing trade requests 

For more information, check out our documentation regarding counterparties and preferred counterparties. 

Manage Subscriptions

Stay informed about the status of your outgoing trade requests and incoming trades without having to log on to the application. You can create email subscriptions that send out email notifications to the users affected in the case of issues or successful processing. You can now also benefit from fine granular events so that, for example, technical issues can be routed directly to your IT department whereas business related issues may be sent to the relevant business user. 

For more information, see our documentation regarding email subscriptions. 

Our journey is still far from over. So please keep your eyes open for new release announcements.
