THE STERLING TRADING TECH SOLUTION:

The STT solution consists of 3 components:

Each of which are abstracted – thus only the components required by the user can be deployed.

DELIVERY METHODS:

The service operates in “Request/response” mode or “Continuous Update” mode.

Request/Response is the preferred mode for SRE, in which a user can send the positions in a portfolio, in the form of a simple message format and receives a response back with both the total margin requirement as well as line by line details for each position.

SRE offers ability to request the shocks for a given options contract or subscribe to a continuous feed of the value and greeks. From a technology set up perspective, we offer two distinct services:

SOPHISTICATED ANALYTICS & CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY:

Combining the power of big data and sophisticated quantitative modelling techniques, Sterling RSQ products are built using a unique “mesh” based algorithm that allows it to calculate real time options volatility, theoretical values and greeks extremely fast using stock hardware with little specialized code.

This breakthrough in options pricing analytics allows the implementation a large set of market shocks and calculate them continuously for the entire market in real time without the use of specialized hardware stacks and software.
