The Settlement Instruction Manager service provides investment manager users of CTM with the ability to send settlement instructions to their custodians, banks, third parties, investment managers and executing brokers, informing them of a trade intended for settlement. The settlement instruction message uses either a SWIFT MT541/543 message format or a Comma Separated Value (CSV) file containing the settlement instructions. A maximum of 15 instruction messages can be sent for each allocation/settlement detail. Users can monitor and manage these settlement instruction messages through the Settlement Instruction Manager UI.
