What is Trade Fill & Confirmation?

The Trade Fill & Confirmation process involves coordination between trading parties as well as both front office (sales and trading) and middle/back office (trade operations and support) staff to satisfy (i.e., fill) trade orders and confirm the trade details with the counterparty. Front office sales and trading team members collect the trade details and send an order to the middle/back office for fulfillment. After the trade order has been input, and any trade breaks or entry errors have been resolved, the trade is sent to the execution desk for completion.
