Abstract

The gateway interface acts as a communication framework, which connects any potential internal client system to the Barclays’ reporting database. This gateway interface processes a client's pre-confirmation request and triggers a message to the reporting platform. A pre-confirmation report, of futures contracts, documents all the daily transactions for each client before it is archived in the books and records system. Since Barclays has clients in Tokyo, who frown on amendments in the books and records system, this gateway interface provides them the ability to confirm their stance on the offsetting trade transactions. In addition, it automates the process and significantly reduces the fifteen minutes wait-time for one report to two minutes for all pre-confirmation reports.
