An excellent understanding of the entire process, and not just your own tasks, will help you identify risks at the earliest opportunity in the processing lifecycle. Such risks include direct monetary loss (resulting from delayed settlement) and potential loss of clients owing to a failure to provide a top-quality service (e.g. accurate trade confirmations).
