ABN AMRO Clearing introduced Direct Money Transfer for its clients

In the previous newsletter October 2017, we informed you about our successfully new service Direct Money Transfer.
Direct Money Transfer is a financial transaction in which one party withdraws funds from another parties bank account. With this you give ABN AMRO Clearing the authority to take regular payments from your house bank account automatically, so you do not have to worry about missing payments yourself.
In order to arrange these payments by Direct Money Transfer service, the client and house bank needs to complete some agreements with instructions/authorizations. If you are interested in this new service, do please feel free to contact your Relationship Manager or contact us via

The direct money transfer service offered by AACB will be similar to Request for Transfer (MT101) within the SWIFT  standards. Please note that AACB will not offer Direct Debit Services within the context of the SWIFT MT 104 standard.

ABN AMRO Clearing starts clearing of Irish Power Spot on SEMOpx

Within 5 months from now (May 2018), it is expected the launch of SEMOpx cleared via ECC. 
EirGrid and SONI are the service providers for the new local power exchange SEMOpx which will operate the Day-Ahead and Intraday markets in Ireland and Northern Ireland respectively, which will be coupled with the rest of Europe and continuous and auction intraday markets.

Client Archive and Wizard for Client Reporting

In our newsletter March 2017 newsletter, we informed you about our  new applications for our clients, to get a better Grip on Data, the Archive and the Wizard:
Having access to a reporting archive, to view previous sent reports is vital for any modern business. The Archive application allows access to the daily, monthly and intraday historical data. The intuitive interface gives the possibility to download reports any time. Besides this, there is the opportunity to limit the number of emails. For example: instead of receiving intraday position emails every 15 minutes these can now be downloaded from the Archive when needed. There is 13 months of historic report data in the Archive. 
An Online query tool. This user-friendly Wizard allows to create, save and schedule reports. Reports can include both real-time data and a lookback period of up to 45 days.
Key features: 
  •     Predefined query criteria makes creating reports fast and easy;
  •     Highly intuitive interface;
  •     Scheduled reports can be tailored to provide the data with the frequency needed;
  •     Create reports over multiple days, e.g. month to date transactions;
  •     Export reports in CSV in order to consolidate with the clients systems/reports, saving time and  eliminate human error
