Practical Insights Into Execution, Settlement And Reconciliation

After each round of the simulation, teams are expected to improve their internal processes by reducing the number of errors. Successful execution requires great teamwork and communication in order to deliver effective error-free trades to be settled and reconciled, with final positions being marked to market for fair values in order to deliver outstanding results.
