Clearing Provider G. H. Financials Selects TS Imagine to Enhance Risk Management Capabilities
LONDON and NEW YORK – July 24, 2014 – TS Imagine, a leading provider of risk and portfolio management solutions for the investment community worldwide, today announced that G. H. Financials has selected TS Imagine’s real-time, cloud-based service to enhance its global Futures and Options clearing service. As a top-ranked global provider of order-routing, clearing, and settlement services to the derivatives market, G. H. Financials Limited will use TS Imagine to provide its clients with improved risk analytics, stress testing, VaR, and correlation margin calculations.
“Our clients are extremely sophisticated investors who are laser-focused on a single outcome – trading listed derivatives for alpha. This means that our risk management infrastructure must be equally, if not more, sophisticated,” said Steve Martin, Chief Operating Officer of G. H. Financials Limited. “Among a long list of benefits, TS Imagine was the only third-party system we reviewed that delivered the analytics needed to calculate the real-time risk on cleared arbitrage trades,” said Martin. “TS Imagine’s solution enhances our robust processes and offers a new level of ‘future-proofing‘ that will help us stay ahead as the clearing space evolves.”
Martin added that another benefit of the TS Imagine platform is its scalability. As G. H. Financials Limited continues to expand the cross-section of asset classes the firm clears, Martin said, “This is the start of an ever-deepening relationship.”
Brendan Quinn, Director of Sales at TS Imagine, said, “Risk management in the clearing industry is constantly changing due to an evolving set of regulatory, client and investor demands. We look forward to working with G. H. Financials Limited as they continue to successfully navigate complex financial markets.”
