WSO Trade Closing Services

Opt for cost- and time-efficient trade closing services

When in-house loan settlement occurs mostly through a manual, paper-driven process, it requires the constant attention of loan managers and their interaction with multiple counterparties. This time-consuming process can be complex to manage, decrease liquidity and increase counterparty risk. The average trade settlement time in the market remains high due to lengthy administrative processes.
