The Aladdin-Systems company offers an integrated complex solution for financial and investment companies that are professional securities market participants and operate as brokers, dealers, depositaries, and/or trust managers. This solution is also suitable for groups of companies that include professional securities market participants and their clients. With the licenses that the company has it is possible to construct a system with all the necessary functions using the following components:

In the ALADSYS.Securities™ system the recording is done using the two cards of accounts – in cash and in securities. The system can provide information on the current location of securities and cash assets, on debts and receivables, and on the current and expected settlements.
The recording can be done for several companies, each of which can have their clients. Within the dealer’s and client portfolios there are sections for which one can use different write-off methods (LIFO, FIFO, weighted average). In addition, one can use special methods such as the selected batch method and REPO method.

The system supports operations with stocks, bonds, promissory notes, derivatives and other financial instruments. The client orders and their execution are recorded. The system supports organized exchange transactions and over-the-counter transactions, as well as transactions done via the external broker. It supports transactions of buying, selling, barter trade, REPO and reverse REPO.
The import methods allow the import of transactions from the exchange listings of MICEX, MSE, SPCEX, as well as the import of transactions of RTS and the Stock Exchange “St-Peterburg” from the Electronic Document Center system (TsED).

For over-the-counter transactions the system traces the process of the transaction conclusion and settlement, with the possibility of partial payments and deliveries. The systems supports stock conversions, stock splits and consolidation, income payment in the form of securities, dividend disbursement, redemption of securities and coupon payments with various payment schemes, interest rates accruals on deposits, coupons, promissory notes. The system supports operations with securities denominated in foreign currency and their revaluation by market quotes (marking to market).

The system can calculate the service commissions and expense reimbursements on the basis of the price-lists – both separately for each transaction (on-line) and in aggregation for a period; it can also allocate expenses by investor and by transaction.

The system can produce the reports on actual and planned cash flow and securities flow, as well as on the proprietary and client current portfolio balances with the estimation of their current value.
For these current value estimations the system uses market quotes that can be imported from files coming from different exchanges. The system supports value estimations with different sets of quotes for different types of portfolios (mutual funds), non-governmental pension funds, the Pension Fund of Russian Federation). The system supports aggregated reporting in accordance with the Statement ¹33 by the Federal Securities Market Commission, with the possibility of input into the FFMS electronic questionnaire.

There is a special module that allows the brokers to render the service of giving to their clients marginal trading loans. The system allows to trace the coefficients of the margin levels after the operation and to perform automatic generation of credit or repo operations on the basis of the trade session results. There is automatic creation of margin calls, and the forced closing of positions is also automated.

The system can be integrated with various e-trade software (NetInvestor, Quick) and trade terminals (RTS-Plaza) – both on-line (i.e. update after each trade and each new quote) and off-line (import of transactions and export of positions into the e-trade system).

For the companies that perform trust management there are Reports on the asset structure and on the deviations of the asset structure from the legal requirements and standards.

For a brokerage firm that offers its clients the services of a depository there is a possibility of using the integrated solution ALADSYS.Securities™/ ALADSYS.DEPO™, which integrates the back-office and depositary recording into a single system, which allows to create a unified environment and thus to ensure the on-line interaction between the back-office and the depository. This system includes the automated creation of orders by the results of the trading session, the sending of orders created in the back-office that are related to the over-the-counter transactions and asset depositing or withdrawal to the depository, the tracing of settlement, and automated recording of the results in the accounting system and in the back-office depositary recording systems.

For organizing electronic document flow between the systems based on ALADSYS.SQL™ and external systems one can use ether a simple import-export or a message flow based on the system ALADSYS.Message.

On the basis of ALADSYS.Message we have developed a two-way exchange of SWIFT-like messages with the Depositary Clearing Company (which is integrated into the system DCC-Client) and with the Electronic Document Center of RTS (integrated Client of TsED-RTS).

We have organized the message flow for SWIFT messages of the standard ISO 15002, which allows the integration into international settlement systems. Such messages include depositary and payment instructions, as well as the receiving of account statements with the possibility of automated matching.

The system allows doing accounting for the proprietary and the client (i.e. trust management) operations on the basis of the documents of back-office recording system – with the subsequent import into the external accounting software. We have accumulated vast experience in the interaction with a number of standard accounting software packages. Companies working with individuals may be interested in getting the Tax Agent’s module and the Tax Reporting module with the possibility of saving the 2-NDFL reports in the electronic format of the “Taxpayer” system using the address classifier KLADR.

It is possible to set up the management accounting of the financial activities of a group of companies which includes the head office, branches and subsidiaries. We have experience in setting up such a single management accounting system for a group of companies of different jurisdictions.

Analysts and portfolio managers may find useful the possibility of splitting the portfolio by manager (trader) and keeping track of all managers’ portfolios separately. They may also be interested in the Analytics modules allowing analytics by type of investment, industry and sub-industry in accordance with a set-up structure and on-line portfolio monitoring.


Professional securities market participants are legal entities, including credit organizations, or the individuals (physical persons) registered as the individual entrepreneurs that have licenses for the activities related to Russian securities markets (the types of such activities are listed in the Chapter 2 of the Federal law of 22.04.1996 ¹39-FZ "On the Securities Market").

Unit Investment Fund (PIF) – is the instrument of collective investment in Russia that allows investors to combine their savings and invest them under the management of a professional management company. Functionally, unit investment funds in Russia are similar to mutual funds in the USA, but their legal status and regulation are somewhat different. One of the important differences is that the US mutual funds are forced by law to make distributions (they have to distribute at least 90% of their realized capital gains and dividend income each year), whereas the Russian PIFs don’t have to make any distributions. The “shares” of PIFs are called units, and the investors are referred to as unit-holders.

NAUFOR (the National Association of Stock Market Participants) is a self-regulatory organization established in 1995 and composed of professional securities market participants.

Electronic Document Center system (TsED) is the system of electronic confirmation of trades that are concluded by the market participants (also called Market side electronic trade confirmation). In the system the contracts are signed by digital signature.

The Federal Financial Markets Service (FFMS) is the federal executive body that controls and supervises activity in the financial markets, including the activity of exchanges, and issues the relevant regulations. It also regulates the investment of pension savings.

Federal Securities Market Commission is the federal executive body that supervised the activity in the financial market and issued the relevant regulation before the creation of the Federal Financial Markets Service (FFMS), which is now responsible for these functions.
