ABSTRACT
The article provides information on Digiterre's straight-through processing (STP) hub hosted service. The STP hub reportedly utilizes Microsoft.Net and FpML and is easily scalable. According to the article, it will reduce risk and the opportunity for human error by automating what is often a manual error, through their no-touch STP. The growing number of funds who are choosing to keep their derivatives processing and confirmation activity in-house to monitor it closely is also noted.
