Settlements viewYou can view cashflow records in two different ways:

1. Live view Displays open, pending and approved casflows. You can review, approve or send queries on cashflows

2. Archive view Displays all approved cashflows

Fig. 2.3 Different Views: Live view selected

The view that you select will appear in a highlighted state (See Fig. 2.3). By default, the selected view is Live view. Every three hours, the database is refreshed and you will see a listing of your current cashflows at that time.

Note: Any cashflows executed after the last four hourly refresh will not appear until the next four hour window e.g. if the last refresh was performed at 10:00 GMT and you executed the trade at 10:27 GMT, you will see the record when the next refresh is done at 14:00 GMT

You can also export trade details to PDF or Excel using icons in the top right hand corner of the application.

Note: You may multi-select categories in the Status section, if required.

The resulting cashflow records will now appear within the main Cashflow Records window.

Settlements Instructions, Audit Trail and Payment NetClick on the cashflow to load the Settlement Instructions section.

1. By default, the Details tab (see Fig. 2.5) is shown allowing you to view the settlements instructions. Since the cashflow confirmation is a two way process, all DB SSIs are now visible in the same Settlement Instruction Pane as your SSIs are currently displayed. These will always be visible going forward whether it is a live cashflow, an archived cashflow, or content exported to Excel.

2. Select the Audit Trail tab (see Fig. 2.6) to review the history. This includes the Trade ID, the date and time the cashflow was executed and if appropriate, when it was approved or closed and any comments associated with the trade.

3. Payment Net tab (see Fig. 2.7) allows you to view details as well as the net amount of the approved netted cashflows.

Cashflow Confirmation 8

Approving Cashflows ProcessTo approve cashflows, you will have to first review the cashflow record. Once you have reviewed, you can either send a query (if you do not recognise the cashflow record) or you can approve the cashflow (if you do recognise the cashflow record).

Note: CFC also has the ability to net your cashflows. There is an automatic calculation provided when selecting multiple cashflows. This visibility is carried through to the approval process, ensuring management of your workload is as simple and efficient as possible.

Reviewing a CashflowIn the Cashflow Records view panel you can see cashflows with open, pending and approved status (see Fig. 3.0).

Trade Status Description

Open A new cashflow

Pending A queried cashflow

Approved An approved cashflow

By default, all cashflows are arranged by value date/priority (see Fig. 3.1).

You can sort and arrange different columns.

You can now also see all cashflows, both STP and Non -STP, making it easier for you to enquire about your cashflows in one centralised location.

You can also track each cashflow with the corresponding MarkitWire ID associated to it, allowing you to have a Common Identifier to track or query a cashflow if needed. MarkitWire IDs are now part of the Excel export, providing you with multiple data reference points when manipulating your extracted cashflows.
