How do you monitor all updates across multiple exchanges and limits that change during the month?
Do you find it difficult to interpret and apply the many exchange rulebooks definitions?
Do you find irregularities and challenges in sourcing exchange limit data and rule definitions?
Are you concerned position limit monitoring is restricting your trading?
FundApps' Position Limits is a managed service for asset managers and pension funds who trade on over 10 exchanges. It combines a powerful rules engine with a dedicated team of compliance experts and legal information from regulatory data sources to ensure that Compliance Managers can monitor position limits when trading commodities to avoid fines and adhere to regulation.
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 89 global exchanges, covering Futures, Swaps and Options.
By automatically calculating your current positions against exchange-imposed limits you are assured that your limits data is accurate and up to date.
It's challenging to monitor and update changes to contract specifications, and calculate and track positions against exchange-imposed limits. We automate the process of monitoring Spot, Single, All, and Other Month limits.
This saves hours of time and manual effort as there’s no longer a need to calculate positions using Excel or to track limit changes manually.
We automate the sourcing and calculating of spot calendar dates which pose a significant challenge as exchanges don’t readily publish this information. Exchanges release rules which explain when a contract enters its spot period, rather than publish the actual date, forcing compliance officers to calculate the spot date manually.
By sourcing the maturity date and running this through our rule engine to calculate the spot start dates, we eliminate the need to gather this information directly from the exchange and manually input it into Excel to determine the correct date.
Limit aggregation and netting procedures are often opaque and extremely complex. In order to accurately reflect your positions, we do an automatic conversion and aggregation process. As some contracts are rolled up into a parent contract and may have a relevant ratio, it's challenging to identify which contracts aggregate, how this impacts positions and the associated trading deadlines. We also represent and amend entire corporate structures by distinguishing between corporate entity and ownership relationships.
This comprehensive oversight enables compliance by correctly aggregating positions at the right contract level and corporate level (from entity to portfolio) whilst adhering to ownership type (e.g legal, voting, management).
We don't charge extra for help with implementation or support from our dedicated team of compliance experts, and there are zero hidden fees or maintenance costs.
Everything is included with a FundApps subscription.
