Experience Seamless End-to-End Trading with the Trading Platform Integration

We tirelessly strive towards an even more seamless and out of the box trading experience for you. To that end, we’ve added a bunch of new features that make your day-to-day work with the trading platform integration application even easier. 

Let’s have look!  

Money Market Funds 

The trading platform integration now supports securities instruments that are received from an external trading platform based on the 020 Investment Funds product category in SAP Treasury and Risk Management. In the trading platform integration this product category is covered by the Securities: Money Market Fund instrument category. Securities: Money Market Fund transactions can manage purchases and sales for the trading process (inbound). 

The first partner who is supporting this integration is ICD Portal. Mutual customers can immediately benefit from a standard integration between ICD’s Investment Portal and SAP Treasury and Risk Management using the trading platform integration application. Find out more about the integration scenario in this video published by ICD. 

With this release, we cover also variable NAV’s on top of the already supported stable NAV’s. This means that after receiving the trades with estimated prices per unit, prices are updated automatically once the final price per unit is available. 

For more information, have a look at our documentation describing our scope. 

For information regarding the set-up of money market funds, see How to Set Up Securities: Money Market Funds. 

Enhanced Intercompany Trading  

With this release, we now support five trading scenarios that you can use to reflect your intercompany trading scenarios. Our back-to-back trading now comes in two varieties: 

  • Back-to-Back Trading triggered by a trade request from a subsidiary 

Back-to-Back%20%28Subsidiary%29%20Trading%20Scenario

Back-to-Back (Subsidiary) Trading Scenario

  • Back-to-Back Trading triggered by a trade request from a treasury center 

Back-to-Back%20%28Treasury%20Center%29%20Trading%20Scenario

Back-to-Back (Treasury Center) Trading Scenario

The main difference here is whether an intercompany trading process starts with a request from a subsidiary that is then forwarded to its treasury center or whether the treasury center triggers the process with an external trade on behalf of their subsidiary. Both scenarios are valid and depend on how customers manage their FX exposures. They result in the creation of an external trade request completed with two intercompany trades between the subsidiary and treasury center.  

Apart from that, we’ve added a completely new intercompany trading scenario that allows you to process trades that you created on an external trading platform. This is especially useful for customers with specific pricing requirements who want, for example, to benefit from real-time pricing capabilities.  

Trading%20Via%20Trading%20Platform%20Trading%20Scenario 

Trading Via Trading Platform Trading Scenario

For this new scenario, we currently support 360T’s Intragroup Trading System I-TEX. Customers who already process their internal transactions with 360T can now benefit from the full integration of 360T’s solutions with their SAP back-end system.  

For more information, have a look at our documentation for Intercompany Trading and Trade Request Process.

Counterparty Limit Utilization 

Now you can review your counterparty limit utilizations in the trading platform integration application, instead of having to check it in your SAP S/4HANA or SAP S/4HANA Cloud Treasury and Risk Management.   

As a trader, you want to have a clear overview of the free limits of your counterparties to be able to monitor your counterparty risks and prevent trading beyond the limit of each counterparty. The trading platform integration application provides the Counterparty Limit Utilization app to enable you to monitor your counterparty limits and make better decisions. 

For more information, see Counterparty Limit Utilization.
