TS Imagine Introduces High-Volume Risk Management Solution to Address New CFTC Regulations

Enables Clearing Houses and Other Large Financial Institutions to Perform Extensive Risk Calculations on Thousands of Trades per Second across Millions of Positions

NEW YORK, February 21, 2013 – TS Imagine, a leading provider of real-time portfolio and risk management solutions worldwide, has introduced a groundbreaking new product, the TS Imagine High-Volume Risk Management (HVRM) solution. Building on the award-winning company’s two decades of experience delivering sophisticated risk analytics to global investment management firms, this new product helps clearing houses achieve the high speed, high volume, high-end risk analysis required by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) regulations that are scheduled to go into effect in June 2013. It also provides prime brokers, major banks, asset managers, and other leading financial institutions with the capability to apply sophisticated, real-time risk limit monitoring on a large scale.

Under impending CFTC Rules 1.73 and 1.74, clearing providers must establish risk-based limits, screen orders for compliance with those limits, and monitor their clients’ trading activities with respect to those limits. All this must be accomplished within 60 seconds after a trade has been submitted for clearing. The TS Imagine HVRM solution satisfies these mandates with a lightweight, cloud-based offering that can be rapidly deployed and easily integrated into a client’s existing systems.

With the ability to apply TS Imagine’s extensive risk calculations to thousands of trades per second across millions of positions, clearers and other large financial institutions can achieve greater insight into potential limit breaches, faster and more comprehensive risk analysis, and the ability to respond quickly to changing market conditions.

The TS Imagine HVRM solution includes:

  • Complete support for CFTC Rules 1.73, 1.74
  • The ability to handle high volumes of trades, positions, and accounts
  • Real-time limit monitoring of trade, position, and account level VaR, liquidity, and Greek exposures
  • The ability to configure alerts based on user-defined analytics
  • A real-time management console of client accounts and exposures with full drill-down into suspect positions and trades
  • Interactive and static reporting
  • Complete data management

Steven Harrison, President and COO of TS Imagine, said, “From its inception, the TS Imagine Trading System was designed to provide real-time pricing, exposures, and risk management for the fastest moving markets—equity derivatives—trade-by-trade, tick-by-tick. Today, we can deliver those same extensive risk analytics in high-transaction environments, for all major asset classes including listed derivatives. Because of this deep experience, we are uniquely positioned to help the investment industry step confidently into the new realm of high-volume risk management.”
