Performance improvements

We made performance improvements when opening the customer overview.

ISO 20022 Debit Payments - added validation

We added validation for currencies so that custody and withdrawals are the same. We will not be able to create a file where the currency of the withdrawal is something other than the base currency of the custody account that the withdrawal order is linked to since it is not supported by many custodians.

Fee Management - Separate buy and sell fees with maximum and minimum amounts

We have extended the functionality in the internal add-on Fee Management so you can separate only to have buy or sell fees. There is also a possibility to set a maximum amount on fees in percentage so the customers never pay more than a certain fee. Learn more.

The add-on can be ordered in our Marketplace.

Improved ticket when using a mobile device

We have improved and changed the ticket for withdrawal on the customer front when using a mobile. Supported browsers: Google Chrome (mobile + web page), Safari (mobile), Edge (web page) and Firefox (web page).

 

 

Tax Shell on Account Types

We have updated the names on the Tax Shell to make it more clear and understandable. We are using the whole name instead of an abbreviation and have also removed AF (aktiefondkonto/equity fund) and set the account types that used this to None, since there was no functionality on AF. We also set None on the account types that did not have a tax shell.

API

We have added a new property, CustodyAccountCash, in the API method for the manual execution interface. Please read our changelog to get all the information about the updates.

Fixed Issues

If you had a default fee on an instrument that is for instance 2 %, and created a sell order with a connected autogiro withdrawal order, the amount for the autogiro withdrawal was based on the current price of the instrument, not the price of when the trade order is executed. This is now fixed.

Fixed Issues

The organization number was not in the CSV export when exporting data from the list of Companies under User Management. This is now fixed. (BB-2246, Support-8089)

There was a crash in the job or processing recurring orders when doing trades in amount with fees on the instrument and using the NFM order route. The orders were not created after the autogiro orders were finished, so the customer had to handle the orders manually. We have now fixed this bug. (BB-2360, Support-8268, Appalerts-5955)

Reserve assets for placed and filled trade orders

The majority of the customers in corporate finance firms, don´t have cash in their accounts when the trade order is placed and filled. We have therefore added the possibility to reserve assets on individual manual buy orders in status Placed and Filled. The functionality is also available when multi-handling manual orders. The reservation will be connected to the order and will be removed automatically when the order is done.

 

API

We have added support for external account type BIC/IBAN in the method https://bricknode.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/API/pages/52002942

Please read our changelog to get all the information about which API methods have been updated.

Fixed Issues

When you click on the CSV export under the section Client Transactions you get an error page/message. This is now fixed. (BB-2306, Support-8238)

Creating a withdrawal (both when using the Domestic bank - and Bangiro as an external account) with the method https://bricknode.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/API/pages/52002942 there were two reservations created on the customer. (BB-2257, BSS-18571, BSS-18030)

Multihandling checkboxes were missing on structured products for mass managing manual orders.

New setting for default custody account for cash on manual order route

Some of our customers have several bank accounts for the same currency and therefore need to use several custody accounts in Bricknode Broker. It is now possible to set a default custody account for cash on the manual execution interface. The default custody account for the currency will be used if this field is empty.

When managing the orders in bulk there is a possibility of changing the default custody account (cash and instrument), counterparty, and counterparty account. We have added a new section under Accounts in the fill ticket. You can override default values here by checking the checkboxes. The values will be used for all the selected orders. If you leave the fields blank, values from the instrument or currency will be used.

 

Mass managing of orders from the Instrument view

You can now select several orders and manage them in bulk from the order tab on the Instrument view (Stocks). This means you can fill and settle multiple orders at once, saving considerable time compared with handling these individually. This functionality has only been available from Manual Orders. Learn more.

Select which tabs to be visible on the instrument view

You can now select which tabs should be visible on the instrument view. Greyed-out options are controlled by add-ons and can therefore not be selected.

 

Summary and Statistics for manual and subscription orders

The totals are calculated in the subscription order list.

We have added a statistic tab in all instrument views. That will show different sections depending on what type of orders have been made.

Added overview tabs for subscription and manual orders. Order Management> Overview.

Settings saved on Overview and in the list of tasks

Settings and filter options that you are doing will be remembered.

  • List of tasks (User Management > Tasks)

  • Dashboard

For example, if you want the status All Active to be selected and the drop-down menu Assigne to be empty.

Fixed Issues

New Instrument Settings

The Instrument Warning on the dashboard shows instruments that are missing a price, i.e. price is 0. In some situations, some instruments are supposed to have a price of 0. We have therefore added a new setting where you can ignore this warning. You will also find this setting when editing the instrument. Learn more.

 

You can also decide not to show the section Instrument Settings. To change the board simply drag and drop the objects. Learn more.

We have also added a CSV export and the possibility to change pages.

 

New setting for adding logotype in the web browser

We have added a new setting under System Data for adding logotype in the browser tab.

New settings for the Subscription Order ticket

You can now select the values you want to be remembered/saved in the Subscription Order ticket. If these are marked the ticket will remember the last used value in the ticket, for example, if you uncheck reserve asset, the next time you open the ticket this checkbox will be unchecked.

 

Edit Custody Account on withdrawal orders

It is now possible to edit the Custody Account on withdrawal orders, by clicking on the action menu on the account and clicking Edit.

 

Fixed Issues

We had the wrong header in the export file which led to a problem when importing the file in SEB. This is now fixed. (BB-2254, SUPPORT-7963, BSS-18030)

The EOD files saved by the MFEX job were visible as documents on the customer front. The Permission was set to All but should be Admin only. (BB-2292, BSS-18472)

Improvements in Corporate Actions

It is now possible to correct an executed corporate action event. The batch will get status corrected and all transactions will be corrected automatically both on the customers and the house.

Currency exchange orders created in connection with Corporate Action events will be batched separately from other currency exchange orders. The batch order will get an extra button with a C. If you click the C you will get to the connected corporate action.

If we want to cancel the Currency Exchange Batch Order connected to a corporate action we will need to correct the whole corporate action.

The add-on Fund Rebate - can now be used for all instruments in Bricknode Broker

Other instrument types than funds can issue rebates back to the investors and we have therefore enabled this functionality for all instrument types.

MFEX

We are now saving the EOD price file from MFEX to be able to exactly know what MFEX is sending which can help when troubleshooting, for example. The file is saved under the file area on the house.

Fixed Issues

We now use the decimal places on the currency when displaying the amount in the blue info box in the trade ticket. (BB-2210), Support-7936)

When filling sell orders with order type Cash amount and nominal amount, the amount that you set when you placed the order needs to be entered again. We have now fixed it so the amount is saved when executing the order. (BB-2203, Support-8019)

The available amount in Internal Transfer was rounded to two decimals hiding the rest of the decimals in the position. This is now fixed and the amount without rounding is displayed in the internal trade ticket. (BB-2198, Support-7939)

When you selected Cash Amount and Nominal Amount when executing an order, the option to settle the order directly was greyed out and could not be chosen. This is now fixed. (BB-2138, Support-8010)

In some scenarios when there are closed accounts there will be transactions made on the exception account, these transactions cause a difference in reconciliation. Because the transaction was only made on the exception account and not on the “From Account”. For each fund rebate given to the customer (AND added to the exception account for those accounts that are closed), there should be a negative transaction on the From account set in the fund rebate. (BB-2107, Support-7722)

Wrong market value in account statement when selecting several accounts on the customer. (BB-2092, Support-7902)

Fixed Issues

You were able to place a buy-and-sell order on the account with the sell-and-buy buttons even if the account type was limited. This is now fixed. (BB-1998, Support-7732)

The pie chart was always visible in the partner front even if the setting was set to disabled. This is now fixed. (Support-7707, BB-1975)

When the withdrawal order was set to Done and closed it got a link symbol on it. These types of orders are not possible to link. We have now removed the incorrect symbol. (BB-2095)

Different Rounding methods were used by Allfunds and Bricknode Broker when there was a single underlying order in the batch order. We have now changed the rounding method to how Allfund is doing the rounding (down rounding) which will prevent shares from being put on the exception account (BB-1612, Support-7057, 7174, 7431)

Moved the BIC field to the User section

We have moved BIC to the section User under the Detail tab which means you only have to enter it in one place, previously you could enter BIC under both the section Counterparty and Custodian.

API

It has been possible to create switch orders without buy orders (AllocationItems) through CreateSwitchOrders in API, which caused a later problem in the system where the switch order got stuck. We have now added a constraint so that the property AllocationItems must contain at least one item (buy order).

Please read our changelog to get all the information about which API methods have been updated.

Fixed Issues

The function “taxpayer” on customer details did not work for persons with tax countries other than Sweden. Even if the taxpayer box was unchecked, the tax transactions were still created on the customer if the customer has a tax country other than Sweden, and the instrument is in SEK. This is now fixed.

New default external account type

Extended search functionality

The new filter options are:

  • Created By (Owner/Name of the admin)

  • Updated By (Owner/Name of the admin)

  • Created Date

  • Updated Date

  • Name (Owner)

Fixed Issues

If you tried to sell the entire position (or a big part of the position) and selected the quantity as order type (and the instrument is a fund with NFM, external fund, or fax as execution interface) and there was a fee on the order, you would receive an error when clicking confirm: “Reservations exceeds trading power“.

The problem was that it summed up the quantity and the fee amount into one amount when it was checking for trading power and that exceeded the quantity you had in the instrument position.

Now no fee reservations are created when it is a sell order since there will always be cash available after the sell order is done. (BB-1880, SUPPORT-7469)

When the buy orders should be created the trading power is checked. If there is no trading power no buy orders will be created. The problem is that there are situations where reservations are done before the money is on the account, for example, portfolio. It will then look like the account has zero or negative trading power.

When doing switch orders, the amount from the sells is reserved to the allocation order so there is no need to check the overall trading power before placing the buys.

We have also extended the functionality with more logging.

Expanded options when editing a subscription order

We have added more options when editing a subscription order. There is now a possibility to edit the quantity/nominal amount in the subscription order. It is common to change quantity/amount due to either lack of cash, so the customer needs to buy less, or that the customer has been allocated fewer shares than they wanted. Learn more.

 

Depersonalize Messages, Tasks, and Notes

Use the menu option, Depersonalize, to hide or disguise sensitive personal information, like personal/org.no, name. This functionality can, for example, be used when taking screenshots. This functionality is now also working on messages, tasks, and notes.

Limitations in the add-on Switch Orders

These limitations only apply if you send orders in instrument currency to the fund company.

It is now only possible to do switch orders between funds and only when the funds are in the same currency (from and to).

We have added new messages:
“Using switch orders to switch between funds that are traded in different currencies is currently not available. Please first sell the first fund and then enter a new buy order for the second fund (conducting any currency exchange orders in between). Please refer to the help section for more detailed information.”

"It is only possible to do switch orders between funds"

Improved error message

We have expanded the error message that you can get when you do an action that can reverse the position, previously you only got “Transaction failed”, which made it difficult to know what was wrong.
