Automated and scalable settlement and asset servicing helping custodians deliver exceptional service to clients

Custody operations simplified

In global markets and across asset classes, Syn~Ops Custody allows you to focus on delivering exceptional service to your clients. Reduce your operational overheads and costs by efficiently processing settlements and automating corporate actions workflow.

The cloud-based platform also allows you to expand services with client account interest, margin cash and risk adjusted portfolio valuations.
