Sterling Trading Tech Adds FX and Crypto Asset Classes To Its Advanced Risk and Margin System
Sterling Trading Tech (STT), a leader in technology solutions for the capital markets, today announced the addition of the FX and Crypto asset classes to its industry-leading risk and margin system.
The Sterling Risk & Margin System (SRM) provides advanced analytics as a RaaS (Risk-as-a-Service) solution utilizing sophisticated quantitative and big data techniques to manage risk and monitor margin in real-time. The SRM calculates risk scenarios, stress tests, portfolio margin, risk-based haircuts, maintenance margin and Value at Risk (VaR) for each account, with the capability to add and handle firm-specific house rules.
Adding cryptocurrencies and foreign exchange (FX) to the platform's existing support of global equity, equity options and equity futures markets for risk calculations provides a new level of multi-asset risk coverage for clients.
Specific functionalities related to the new asset classes include:
The Sterling Risk & Margin System has seen continuous adoption by clearing firms, hedge funds, broker dealers and proprietary trading groups who can not only monitor risk using a GUI but can pull data into their downstream systems via an API.
Earlier this year, Sterling Trading Tech announced the appointment of industry veteran Jeff Marston as Chief Technology Officer and enhancements to its OMS system with cutting-edge features including fractional share support and a new risk-based rules engine, offering broker-dealers and their traders unprecedented power and flexibility.
