The Settlement Instruction Manager service provides investment manager users of CTM with the ability to generate settlement notifications to be sent to custodians, banks, third parties, investment managers and executing brokers to inform them of a trade intended for settlement. The settlement notification message uses either a SWIFT MT541/543 message format or a Comma Separated Value (CSV) file containing the settlement instruction. A maximum of 15 notifications can be sent for each allocation/settlement detail. Users can monitor and manage these settlement notification messages through the Settlement Instruction Manager UI.
For investment managers who use CTM and are sending settlement notifications or for custodians, banks, third parties, and executing brokers who receive notifications from their investment manager clients, detailed information on the format of the messages generated by Settlement Instruction Manager is available in the below documents.
