Position Limits Monitoring

Invaluable to clients operating in the financial market, the FundApps’ position limit monitoring service simplifies the processes involved in ensuring regulatory compliance is maintained in the purchase and trading of financial derivatives. With limits imposed by exchanges and regulatory authorities such as the CFTC and MiFID II across the globe on an intraday basis, adhering to market rules and avoiding limit violations can prove challenging. With our intuitive position limit monitoring system, however, clients gain access to an early warning system capable of informing them where their positions are versus applicable limits.
