Multi-dealer platform Contineo has launched a new solution for private banks in a bid to fill a servicing gap in the structured product secondary market…

Contineo launches private banking tool for structured products

Contineo, a wealth technology firm focused on structured products, has launched a lifecycle management tool targeting private banks.
Designed as a client engagement tool for structured products, the offering allows wealth managers to monitor product events and the underlying performance of their clients’ investments.
Once a client places a trade, the tool allows relationship managers to get a portfolio overview, indicative bid prices and issuer notifications.
Additionally, the platform provides details of the performance and barriers to watch for the underlying structured product, as well as corporate actions and client reporting and documentation.
CEO Antoine de Charnacé said the product has already gone live at one of Contineo’s eight private banking clients in Asia.
‘Similar to having a portfolio overview on your positions in equities or bonds, the private banks are in need of a post­trade functionality for structured products,’ he told Citywire Asia.
‘The level of post­trade services may differ from issuer to issuer. The new tool is a way to get one­click reporting and be able to retrieve all product details across all the manufacturers in one go,’ he added. Contineo is currently working with 15 structured product issuers.
The new launch builds on the Hong Kong­based firm’s existing product suite, which includes a tool that allows private banks to send pricing requests and place orders for equity­linked structured products.

Contineo brings new transparency and efficiency to structured products

Contineo launches a Lifecycle Management module as a client engagement tool for Wealth Managers

15 May 2019 (Hong Kong): Contineo, the network serving the wealth management industry, today launched a new tool that offers private bankers unprecedented insight into their clients’s structured products portfolios.

Contineo’s Lifecycle Management product brings centralized management tools to wealth managers for the first time, allowing them to monitor product events, underlying performance and creating additional touch point opportunities with clients, as well as superior one-click reporting. The product is already live at one of Contineo’s member firm.

CEO Antoine de Charnacé said that the Proof of Concept developed by the company earlier has now been fully enhanced in partnership with private banks on the network into a comprehensive Lifecycle module, delivering exactly the capabilities that have been missing on the secondary market for structured products.

“Our unique position at the intersection of issuers and wealth managers allows us to help identify business opportunities by tracking the performance of products and underlyings; better monitor product events from barriers watch and coupons payments to corporate actions; and overall gauge secondary market opportunities for investors he said. “Taken together, these capabilities allow wealth managers to enrich their client interactions with better, more timely information, and manage their portfolios much more quickly and easily. This is also a great opportunity for issuers to demonstrate their level of post trade services” he added.

Product features managed within the Contineo’s Lifecycle Management module include:

  • Portfolio overview
  • Indicative bid prices
  • Issuer notifications
  • Underlying performance and barriers watch
  • Corporate actions
  • Client reporting and documentation

Lifecycle Management is available as part of the Contineo suite of products either as a standalone module or alongside Contineo’s Click and Trade module and Analytics module, the market data solution to access structured products market insights.
