CHICAGO – October 28, 2021 – Sterling Trading Tech (STT), a leader in technology solutions for real-time risk management and margin calculations for equities, equity options, futures, and options on futures sees continous interest and adoption of its Rest API cloud-based Risk & 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 in real-time. The SRM calculates risk scenarios, stress tests, portfolio margin, risk-based haircuts, maintenance margin and VaR for each account, with the capability to add and handle firm-specific house rules. Additionally, the SRM is utilized by FiNRA approved broker and dealers and have been included in FINRA applications as the house risk and margin management system.

While the SRM offers a GUI for client front end access via its browser-based risk monitor, the flexible, cloud-based technology also offers access using its API. This has contributed to the continued adoption by clearing firms, hedge funds, broker dealers and proprietary trading groups, who can not only monitor risk using the GUI but can pull data into their downstream systems using the API.

“We have seen an increase in clients utilizing the Rest API alongside the GUI and integrating the data and analytics into their existing systems. In some cases, it is specifically for filling a need by utilizing one aspect of the system,” states Andrew Actman, Managing Director of Business Development. “The ability for clients to manage their risk and margin together in one real-time solution is a game changer for the industry.”

The Sterling Risk & Margin product line continues to evolve its offering. Its latest release includes support of global equity and equity options markets for risk calculations. It also released a sophisticated custom house/risk policy builder functionality allowing users to construct and manage their own risk or margin policy using any combination of risk measures, including multiple price and volatility scenarios, an OCC TIMS estimate with various addons and VaR (Value at Risk).
