Clearing, Settlement & Custody

Securities Services

Our clients are facing multiple challenges: the cost and complexity of regulatory compliance, how to achieve operational efficiency and economies of scale, access to new markets and customers, margin compression and the need to focus resources on core activities to meet competitive pressures.

They must also meet demand for new markets and asset classes by working with a partner who can provide broad market access and rapid implementation at low cost. Supporting new digital business models will force many to significantly increase their expenditure on enhanced digital capabilities.

Our solutions

We deliver secure yet flexible services to efficiently manage all securities-related activities, from full middle and back office outsourcing to straight through global execution-to-settlement solutions. Our clients can rely on timely and accurate updates on worldwide market practices thanks to our rigorous monitoring.


Our open platform global execution offering allows our clients to trade all electronic securities across over 90 markets worldwide. They simply execute trades through one of our execution-to-custody partners and leave the rest to us.


Through our global clearing and settlement service we connect clients’ trading activities to post-trade market infrastructures either through a single global window or a multi-direct set-up. Our consolidated global set-up supports clearing, settlement and custody in over 90 markets and Multilateral Trading Facilities (MTFs).


Rarely considered an exciting part of our industry, trade settlement needs to work, efficiently and cost effectively. Whatever the size or the number of countries our clients operate in, we design solutions that meet their requirements – whether they only need market connectivity or a fully outsourced solution. Our augmented custody program delivers better ways to operate, and settlement is no exception thanks to the best cut-off times, more options for reporting and simpler ways to integrate with our clients’ systems for onward client reporting.

Local Custody

The key to successful post-trade processing is a partner who is ‘at home’ in local markets. Clients can rely on our deep understanding of local practices and rules, access to market authorities, and understanding of the operational and strategic challenges created by new regulations and market initiatives. Our augmented custody program – better, faster, simpler – offers seamless contact and information flows to local markets by leveraging our systems to ensure market harmonisation and information normalisation.

Global Custody

Our global custody offer covers over 90 markets working in perfect harmony with our proprietary local network and extended providers to give clients a seamless experience. Our augmented custody program leverages digital tools to bring greater efficiencies, such as a single way to provide SSI (standing settlement instructions) to our broker clients, better cut-offs for instructions and faster flow of information from local markets.

Backed by the ISAE 3402 certification and our consistently high ratings (AA S&P), the integrity of our operational processes and procedures are trusted by clients around the world.

Cash management

Regulatory and market evolutions are changing how banks think about and manage liquidity. BNP Paribas has launched a solution that allows our clients to anticipate liquidity requirements, leverage assets and optimise cash management.

Gateways to market infrastructures

BNP Paribas offer a range of products aiming at helping our clients to connect to various market infrastructures such as domestic and international CSDs for financing and collateral purposes.

Online portal for clients

NeoLink, our secure client space, offers clients a comprehensive set of tools to manage information, monitor activity and communicate with us. It has been designed to give ‘always on’ access to extensive sets of organised and clearly presented information.

DNA (Data Navigation Analysis)

DNA, our powerful and intuitive data visualisation tool, may be accessed via NeoLink portal. Whether monitoring portfolio exposures and performance, or overseeing failed trades and risk parameters, clients can customise views so that they have the right data at their fingertips at the right time. By representing data visually, DNA allows clients to focus on the information that is key to their business. Its single platform gives a helicopter view of their whole processes, revealing signals, patterns and trends that might otherwise have been missed.
