Two key areas can be identified which implement systems for trading and risk management purposes. The multi-asset functionality is key to both capital markets and treasury businesses.
Pricing, trading and cross-asset risk management and event processing is key on the capital markets side. Exchange-traded and OTC trading, buy and sell side.
Treasury businesses look to incorporate interest rate and credit trading functionality and cash flow analysis, capital adequacy and STP with good FX and cash management functions. This must be delivered with interfaces to back office systems, limits platforms and other legacy systems.
