Technology Firm Broadridge Enters Japan Market

Broadridge Financial Solutions is to extend its international services to include Japanese equities, convertible bonds and subscription rights processed by on-shore Japanese broker-dealer operations. These services will be supplied in addition to its multi-currency Gloss securities software.

Full processing is provided for matching and settlement through Jasdec, Japan Securities Depository Centre, with relevant Japanese regulatory and legal reports. The solution incorporates the necessary changes required to fully support Japan’s new paperless equities environment with the highest levels of straight through processing, delivery and shareholder management.

The system is able to generate confirmations and processing reports in both English and Japanese. User screens are also available in both languages.

It is fully integrated with Gloss’ global clearance software for equity and fixed-income securities and is already used by a number of customers for the off-shore settlement of Japanese products.

The newly integrated Japanese functionality will be available for implementation beginning July 2009. Broadridge plans to follow this initiative with an equivalent project that addresses the Japanese fixed-income requirements for on-shore operations.

Headquartered in New York, Broadridge’s international market presence spans regional and local centers across the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia.
