Clearing, Settlement and Custody
Providing Clearing, Settlement and Custody across Global Markets and Multiple Asset Classes, GPP operates on a riskless principal basis and does not take any proprietary traded positions.
We provide clearing for equities and fixed income securities on a “Model A basis”. This means that as your agent in the market, we act as your trade intermediary, giving you access to global settlement and custody markets via our connectivity to multiple, industry-leading sub-custodians.
Our clearing solution is built around a combination of our proprietary, web-based back-office platform and in-house operational scale and expertise. The result is global markets access while at the same time reducing operational risk and increasing the efficiency of our clients’ overall clearing and settlement process.
Should you require execution services, our Execution team acts on behalf of professional clients to execute orders in bonds, equities, ETFs and structured products.
Our seamless, multi-asset technology connects the team members to clients and to each other, allowing them to operate a 24/5 coverage model. Institutions, family offices and proprietary trading groups rely on our trading desk to meet their high- and low-touch execution needs.
