Hedgeweek Readers Vote TS Imagine as Best Risk Management Software Firm
The readers of Hedgeweekvoted TS Imagine as Best Risk Management Software Firm in the 2018 awards survey.
Lance Smith, TS Imagine CEO, commenting on the award for Hedgeweek’sreport, said: “The TS Imagine Real-Time Risk & Compliance (RRC) solution is much in demand as firms of all sizes look to manage evolving rules and reporting requirements. TS Imagine’s ability to slice and dice risk and portfolio data helps companies simultaneously track real-time limits, perform stress tests, capture risk across the entire portfolio, spot and correct compliance breaches, and deliver timely transparency reports.”
He added that: “The RRC solution was originally geared towards banks and prime brokerages that have very large trading volumes, and the feedback is very positive. It is in production, mission critical, and performing very well. We are now repurposing the same technology for other players that may not have the trading volumes, but have very large numbers of positions (think large asset managers) and need similar performance. Users can stress test more than 50 historical scenarios, such as Brexit, Enron, Flash Crash, and the 2008 financial crisis.”
Hedgeweek noted that the feedback has also been very positive for another of TS Imagine’s solutions: the TS Imagine Margin Service, a complete operational workflow that incorporates TS Imagine’s trading system, data, and library of margin calculators.
Lance Smith said: “Clients especially appreciate the transparency of the margin calculation. They can drill down and see exactly how the margin was computed, encompassing all waterfalls and decision trees within the margin plan. We continue to extend the margin module by adding on additional exchanges.”
