The trader writes the deal ticket and enters this information in the computer’s front office system. The middle office is the part of the institution that initially verifies the deal. It is normally situated on the same floor as the trading room. Next, the deal goes to the back office, which is located either in a different building or on a different floor. Back-office activity is as important for the bank as the trading room. The back office does the final verification of the deal, handles settlement instructions, releases payments, and checks the incoming cash flows, among other things.
