NRI’s I-STAR/GV provides SaaS to BT Panorama
Feb. 28, 2022
Nomura Research Institute, Ltd.
Tokyo, February 24, 2022- NRI has successfully integrated its I-STAR/GV platform with BT’s Panorama Platform, supporting Panorama’s individual HIN (Holder Identification Number) service offerings. BT is the wealth management arm of the Westpac Banking Corporation in Australia.
I-STAR/GV is the flagship post-trade platform of Nomura Research Institute (NRI) - a leading think-tank and systems integrator in Japan, with a strong focus and commitment to capital markets in Australia.
BT implemented NRI’s I-STAR/GV platform for Settlement Participants. Hosted in Amazon cloud, NRI offers the I-STAR/GV platform as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) to BT. The platform connects to CHESS (Clearing House Electronic Sub-register System) and with the wealth management platform of BT through a standard set of APIs, which supports end-to-end business requirements, in a Straight-Through Processing (STP) mode. Apart from facilitating HIN administration, Trade Settlements, Transfers & Conversions, the I-STAR/GV platform enables automation and STP based processing of Corporate Action event lifecycle, thereby optimizing operations.
NRI believes I-STAR/GV’s platform compatibility and ease of integration maximizes operational efficiency for BT’s rapidly expanding business needs and is forward compatible with the new DLT (Distributed Ledger Technology) based Clearing & Settlement Platform of ASX.
