Global penalties

Avoid fines & reputational damage

We gather position limit data from a number of sources, including the exchanges themselves, every single day. We have integrated with FIA Tech allowing us to support 80+ exchanges, covering futures, swaps and options.

By automatically checking your current positions against exchange and regulator-imposed limits (including MiFID II and CFTC) we help you avoid breaching thresholds.

Trading calendar

Automate the sourcing of accurate trading calendars

We automatically source calendar data, which poses a significant challenge for compliance teams as exchanges don't readily publish this information.

By sourcing the spot calendar dates of contracts we can calculate when spot month limits come into effect and alert you accordingly. This eliminates the need to gather this information directly from the exchange, and manually determine the correct dates and associated spot limits.

Net and aggregate between contracts correctly

In order to accurately reflect current positions, we automatically convert and aggregate any contracts that are rolled up into a parent contract and have a relevant ratio. We represent corporate structures by distinguishing between corporate entity and ownership relationships.

We correctly aggregate positions at the right contract level and corporate level (from entity to portfolio) whilst adhering to ownership type.

Retire systems

Retire unsuitable software and processes

Clients use our service to move away from error-prone and unreliable systems and processes. 100% of clients associate high operational risk with their internal systems or manual processes and two-out-of-three clients have legacy systems they go on to retire after making the switch to FundApps.
