CHICAGO – December 10, 2020 – Sterling Trading Tech (STT), a leader in compliance, risk and infrastructure solutions for equity, options and futures trading, announces enhancements for its cloud-based risk & margin engine.
STT’s Sterling Risk Engine (SRE) provides advanced analytics as a RaaS (Risk as a Service) solution utilizing sophisticated quantitative and big data techniques to manage risk. This is done in real-time for thousands of portfolios which allows brokerages and clearing firms to easily monitor market and credit risk. The SRE continuously calculates the OCC Portfolio margin and Risk based haircuts, for each account. The SRE also has the capability to handle firm specific house rules. The SRE’s flexible, cloud-based technology allows access to risk calculations via its browser-based risk monitor or using its API.
New enhancements include risk classifications and a futures module. The risk classification functionality enables users to view market risk based on sector, industry or market capitalization. The futures module offers market risk based on standard deviations and correlations amongst product groups.
The Sterling Risk Suite has been in active development since its inception in 2018. “Many enhancements are developed to solve specific client needs that are not currently being met in the marketplace,” states Andrew Actman, Managing Director of Business Development for Sterling Trading Tech. “Three new clearing firms have begin using the Sterling Risk & Margin Engine this year. All 3 firms received FINRA approval, which included detailing ways in which they will utilize the SRE on a daily basis.”
Additional new SRE functionality includes; enhanced post-expiration analysis, options pin risk evaluation, a new client facing back office allowing clients to self-manage their setup, a risk event application for communicating risk violations while creating an audit trail of such events, and support of flex options and valuation of risk of warrants.
