List Group, the electronic trading provider behind 15 of Europe’s electronic markets, has launched its standard alone grid computing platform, FMR Grid.
The platform enables financial institutions to conduct complex risk analysis simultaneously across asset classes, improving risk management performance and effectiveness.
The grid-based software tool provides portfolio managers, asset management firms and market makers with the ability to price, stress test and evaluate the risks of large and complex portfolios in real-time.
Asset class coverage includes FX, MM, fixed income, equity derivatives, interest rate derivatives and credit derivatives for both over-the-counter and exchange-based markets.
Enrico Melchioni, chief executive of List Group’s FMR consulting division, says: “It is imperative that today’s financial institutions are able to quickly and efficiently evaluate the potential risks and rewards of their trading strategies across all asset classes. Even nowadays very often the existing market products are slow, with calculations insisting on a single server. List Group’s FMR Grid allows multiple calculations to happen in parallel reducing the time it takes to carry out in-depth analyses.”
FMR Grid can be used to extend the capabilities of List Group’s multi-asset FastTrade platform and position keeping systems. FastTrade connects to electronic markets and offers a range of customisable modules tailored for different asset classes and trade styles.
