The solution is a real-time, multi-currency, transaction processing and record keeping solution for post-execution processing of securities.

As part of the package, Instinet will use Gloss’ new browser enabled, proactive exception management facility. Its institutional clients will also have access to the system for trade and settlement reporting and MIS, enabling Instinet to deliver customer service enhancements.
