Straight through processing for financial transactions

End-to-end processing of securities, funds, payments, equities, fixed income, FX and other critical financial assets.

Operating in the global financial markets requires sophisticated messaging capabilities. From interacting with transfer agents and brokers to managing fund accounting and custodian interfaces, payment and settlement processes demand effective controls, flexible workflow and transparency. Organizations processing thousands of transactions a day need up-to-date, accurate information on transaction flows across multiple networks, and must provide secure, easy access for corporate clients.

OpenText™ STP Financial Hub provides end-to-end workflow-based processing for securities, funds, integrated payments, wealth management, FX and many other critical financial activities.

What is straight through processing (STP)?

Financial companies use straight-through processing to accelerate transactions and data exchange by processing them without manual intervention. STP allows institutions to share information electronically between systems and applications—a faster, more secure and effective manner of data processing.
