With Fusion Summit’s features, SPD Bank will be able to develop a broader and more sophisticated set of treasury services, helping it to grow its business in the region even faster. SPD Bank’s strategic plan is to develop a new range of treasury services and strengthen risk management.

“Our treasury banking operations in Hong Kong have experienced steady growth, but while our existing treasury solution enabled us to provide responsive customer service, its limited performance and risk management capabilities slowed our ability to expand and innovate,” said Zhang Hairong, Senior Technical Director of Development and IT, SPD Bank. “Fusion Summit addresses these issues and enables enhanced monitoring of our treasury business, better operational efficiency, as well as the tools to offer more varied services for our clients. Finastra was very supportive throughout the implementation and went the extra mile to make sure we could still deploy even in the face of the significant disruption caused by the pandemic. We look forward to continuing to work with Finastra as we move forward to the next stage of our growth journey.”

Fusion Summit offers detailed reporting that helps SPD Bank to manage its treasury business in real time. The solution facilitates simple integration with different systems, thereby enabling the bank to increase its operational efficiency across multiple business lines. The solution offers improved Straight Through Processing (STP), which provides customers with increased convenience by increasing trade processing capacity and accelerating the speed of trading.

As well as implementing Fusion Summit as a front-to-back solution to manage all treasury business, the bank is able to manage a wide range of sophisticated and interconnected asset classes effectively. This has allowed it to develop new treasury instruments, including repurchase agreements, callable and puttable bonds, bond forwards, interest rate derivatives and more.

“The collaborative approach taken between Finastra and SPD Bank meant we were able to successfully adapt to new working practices and continue in the face of COVID,” said Richard Zhu, Head of Asia East at Finastra. “Using Finastra’s Fusion Adopt methodology, which offers rapid implementation through standardization and proven business best practices, we carried out all user testing remotely and SPD Bank was able to roll out new remote working capabilities to its employees. With a well-defined and detailed plan, SPD Bank was able to migrate over 2,000 transactions and transitioned all system interfaces to Fusion Summit without issue. We look forward to helping SPD Bank with its growth journey.”
