Ping An Securities has implemented FusionCapital from Finastra throughout its operations in Greater China.
The business, part of China’s Ping An Group, is now using the flexible Finastra platform to help extend its securities brokerage capabilities on a global scale – meaning it can boost revenues as it enters new markets.
“Legacy systems in China are built around existing domestic regulations and rules but they don’t have the capabilities to help us compete globally,” says Andy Han, director of development at Ping An Securities. “Our main goal in seeking an electronic trading platform partner was to find a provider that delivers the flexibility to trade across countries and the adaptability required by changing compliance rules. Finastra holds a strong reputation in handling the complexities of the toughest trading environments so they were the natural choice for us.”
FusionCapital says they offer Ping An Securities an efficient, stable and mature platform that supports the bank’s significant growth ambitions. The solution consolidates and streamlines internal workflows, as well as digitizing all manual and non-digital processes to reduce front- and middle-office admin, improving trading processes, risk monitoring and compliance. Ping An says that the business can now compete on a global scale, quickly adapting to new market practices and regulatory demands while minimizing costs. FusionCapital integrates with the firm’s existing in-house development system and is well suited to meeting Ping An Securities’ complex trading, pricing, risk analysis and reporting needs.
“Increasingly, financial institutions in China are looking to expand beyond domestic borders but it requires agile technology that can stand up to challenge,” says Imad Abou-Haidar, managing director, APAC at Finastra. “Our strength in China comes from understanding the local dynamics and the growth opportunities for firms both domestically and internationally.”
