Custodians play a critical role in helping to ensure the safety of assets in the global financial markets causing specific challenges – including the effects of flat asset growth, increased competition and the impact on earnings as well as evolving regulatory requirements.

DTCC’s ITP services work with our custodian clients to support the key role that they play in the industry by providing them with the tools to achieve true post-trade automation. The consistency and standardization that comes with automation means less exception processing and manual communication and far fewer “touches” per trade – increasing efficiency, data quality and cost savings.
