PSS is Japan’s first utility service for investment banks that streamlines post-trade operations by delivering BPO and ITO services.

PSS’s ITO component is known as NRI's I-STAR, a de-facto-standard system used by over 40 companies in Japan's investment banking sector. I-STAR is an NRI multi-user service for wholesale securities brokers.
