About the team:

Settlements is at the core of Robinhood.  For every trade, every new product launched or market entered, every transaction completed, it is Settlements that enables business to flow.

Settlements is integrated within our clearing businesses and delivers trading, and cash management capabilities to all our clients.  We work to protect the accuracy and efficiency at every step of the trade.  The Settlements Team first ensures that the stock and payment are ready to be traded.  Next, we make sure that the trade is settled properly and on time.  And finally, we confirm that each trade is reported accurately to the buyer, the seller, the firm and the regulators.  Along the way, Settlements looks for anything that could expose our clients or the firm to financial loss, penalty or other risks.  Settlements does this for every trade executed at Robinhood.  The Settlements Team also aids in the design of the technology, the information flows and the processes that make it all work.  We constantly monitor these systems and reengineer them to keep everything running as efficiently as possible.
