TradingScreen wins Best Trading System and Best Innovation to Manage Risk for TradeSmart and RiskHub at 2014 FOW Awards

NEW YORK December 10, 2014 – TradingScreen Inc., the leading independent provider of liquidity, trading and investment technology via SaaS, was honored for Best Trading System of the Year and Best Innovation by an Independent Software Vendor (Regulatory Change) at the 2014 Futures & Options World International Awards event in London.

FOW praised TradingScreen’s products, stating, “TradingScreen’s TradeSmart execution management system took home the award for Buy-side Trading System of the Year in a hotly contested category. TradeSmart is a cloud based trading system for both listed and OTC contracts. This year, TradingScreen enhanced the platform with the introduction of PairsHub, an execution interface within TradeSmart that provides easy access to the pairs trading algorithms of leading investment banks‎. Judges praised the innovation with one saying, ‘the ability to trade complex algos and pairs in a controlled manner is essential in the migration of products from OTC to listed markets and the tools offered here are fast becoming the standard in the industry’.

“TradingScreen’s RiskHub was hailed by judges as an ‘important innovation to meet the demands from a more complex market’. The RiskHub is “a revolutionary, coherent approach” to the new risk management challenges that utilises real-time global replication, in-memory position management, and sophisticated scenario analysis to track the risk in any instrument or portfolio at the time the trade is made. RiskHub was launched to help Futures Commissions Merchants provide real-time credit checks to comply with Title VII of the Dodd-Frank Act. RiskHub gives unprecedented control to the FCM’s Risk Officer, reducing the cost of limit overruns, and matching the toughest regulations with ease. The TradingScreen Risk Hub solution was the first to market with a comprehensive offering to manage risk through a variety of sophisticated limits and controls and intuitive user interface.”

TradingScreen has also been recognized for exemplary service to compliance and regulation at The 2014 Compliance Register Platinum Awards.
