Swift to roll out structured messages for bilateral trade netting


Swift plans to release structured messages for bilateral trade netting in November in a move to improve straight-through processing, says a senior official in London.

The message type will apply to trades that fall outside settlement system CLS, and represent 12% ($400 billion) of total settlement obligations, according to the last report from the Bank for International Settlement's Committee on Payment and Settlement Systems (CPSS) published in 2008.
