Liquid Holdings Group has launched version 3.6 of its Liquid platform, which integrates order and execution management with real-time risk, reporting, shadow NAV, and managed services in the cloud.
The updated platform now delivers a more comprehensive toolkit of pre-trade risk and compliance controls, more robust options trading capabilities, and expanded global equities markets coverage.
With pre-trade risk controls becoming a necessity for hedge fund managers, the Liquid platform provides a fully controlled environment that ensures trading activity does not breach investment mandates prior to placing a trade. In version 3.6, Liquid’s sub-millisecond pre-trade risk engine now includes net exposure limits, underlying exposure as a percentage of portfolio exposure limits, and position size as a percentage of the average daily volume limits, as part of its library of configurable controls.
Additionally, the platform now provides data and trade support for index options which allows portfolio managers and traders to construct option strategies and techniques to invest in an entire index alongside individual stocks. Portfolio managers and traders can now trade additional global equities markets as part of their overall strategy including OMX Nordic – Stockholm (.ST) and Helsinki (.FH), Oslo BORS (.OL), Vienna Exchange (.AV), and NYSE Euronext – Brussels (.BB).
“Version 3.6 delivers on our commitment to provide fund managers with sophisticated and seamless solutions to best run their business. Investors are placing heightened emphasis on hedge fund infrastructure as part of their due diligence prior to allocation. Our latest enhancements empower hedge funds to demonstrate that institutional-quality controls are in place to manage larger allocations as part of Liquid’s order, execution and risk management platform (OERMS),” says Brian Storms, chief executive of Liquid. “Our cloud platform continues to deliver the mission critical capabilities and managed services that established, emerging, and new launch funds require to better manage investments.”
