Clearing and Custody

Laminar Capital’s Clearing and Custody service gives clients the ability to purchase and settle domestic and international over-the-counter (“OTC”) fixed income securities. Combining superior settlements and back-office capabilities with our sophisticated technologically-driven portfolio management platform, Laminar is able to provide wealth managers, fund managers, not-for-profit organisations and Authorised Deposit-taking Institutions (ADI’s) with an efficient and effective method of trading, settling and reporting on their fixed income securities.

Trade Settlement and Custody Solutions

Many portfolio managers find it difficult or cumbersome to purchase and settle OTC fixed income securities. Laminar provides simple and efficient delivery versus payment (DvP) settlement solutions and combines this with sub custodial services which allows wealth managers to hold small parcels of OTC fixed interest securities.

  • Enables efficient settlement of fixed income securities via Austraclear and Euroclear.
  • Automatic generation of trade confirmations.
  • Securities are held in custody via Sandhurst Trustees* or directly in the client’s name via their own Austraclear account operated by Laminar Capital.
  • Split securities into small holdings.
  • Sub custody client reporting.

Austraclear Proxy

Austraclear has various levels of membership and allows certain participants to operate Austraclear accounts on behalf of other members. This is known as Austraclear proxy. An Austraclear account established in your own name allows you to take legal ownership of all your fixed income securities.

  • Laminar Capital is the leading provider of Austraclear proxy services operating over 50 accounts for organisations Australia wide.
  • Austraclear enables participants to settle and hold OTC fixed income securities in their own name and removes the requirement to have securities held in custody by a third party.
  • Appointing a proxy to operate an Austraclear account removes operational risks from the business and can deliver significant cost savings.
  • Clients utilising Laminar’s proxy service gain access to ‘Treasury Direct’ for real time settlement, queue authorisation and monitoring.
