Brady announces strategic agreement with Paxos for increased efficiency in post-trade processes

London, December 2019 –  Brady plc and Paxos, a regulated financial institution that digitizes and mobilizes assets, today announced a strategic agreement to introduce Paxos’ commodities and FX Post-Trade automation service to Brady’s customers, thereby achieving significant time and cost savings in Brady’s OTC trade confirmation process.

Brady’s commodities trading solution supports end-to-end processes for standard contracts to complex derivatives, from booking trades to generating electronic confirmations to counterparties. Brady solutions are deployed by some of the most globally renowned commodity trading firms and producers of precious and base metals in the industry.

In OTC commodities trading, the confirmation process is highly manual and time-consuming, with primary communication conducted via email. This process is inefficient and generates unnecessary risk. With this agreement, Brady’s customers, based on their requirements, will be able to tap into Paxos’ market leading automation technology, to eliminate over 90 percent of time spent these processes.

The flexibility of Brady’s software architecture enables Paxos’ solution to be deployed without the need for separate installations or integration. Paxos’ solution can help Brady’s customers reduce trade confirmation times and automatically affirm net settlement amounts. Furthermore, automatic notifications of mismatched trades and settlement breaks are sent, helping trading participants to reduce their potential market exposure and strengthen controls.

“We are very pleased to be entering into this strategic agreement with Paxos. We view their solution as ‘best of breed’ in the automatic post trade confirmation space. Brady is committed to delivering differentiated and value-added solutions to its customers to address their key challenges in trading life cycle processes and support business growth. This new partnership brings us a step closer to helping our customers create an ecosystem of trading solutions that work together to improve efficiency and effectiveness,” says Carmen Carey, CEO, Brady plc.

“We look forward to embarking on this partnership with Brady, who have a strong reputation in the commodities trading software space,” says Alex Long, Product Director of Paxos. He adds, “Post-Trade processes in commodities and FX trading are slow, risky and out of date. By implementing the Paxos Post-Trade service into their workflow, Brady and its customers will save time, reduce risk and streamline their operations, all while saving money.”
