Bond market standing settlement instruction database launched

The TradeWeb fixed income network has launched AccountNet, a real-time database of standing settlement instructions that will enable institutional investors, securities dealers and custodian banks to warehouse and share settlement instructions for client accounts.

The launch of AccountNet follows a six-month live test of the system by primary dealers, investment managers and global custodian banks, including Credit Suisse First Boston, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, Citigroup, Bear Stearns and Greenwich Capital Markets.

Built as a stand-alone system, AccountNet allows all parties to a securities transaction to access customer account data and settlement instructions from a single database. They can also collaborate through AccountNet to increase the accuracy of the settlement instructions.

Steve Mahoney, a director at Credit Suisse First Boston, says: “AccountNet will provide validated data that, in turn, will result in better settlement instructions and lead to lower fail rates and meaningful STP.”

Michael Wyne, a managing director at FFT&W, added: “AccountNet is addressing the only area left in the trade settlement process that can go wrong. It will play an important part in achieving straight through processing in the bond markets.”
