FundApps' Position Limits is a managed service for financial institutions, who trade derivative contracts on multiple exchanges. It combines a powerful rules engine with a dedicated team of compliance experts and up to date contract limits and exchange data. It helps compliance managers monitor holdings against position limits for exchange-traded contracts resulting from MiFID II regulation, as well as limits imposed by regulatory bodies such as the U.S. CFTC.
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 108 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.
We automate the process of monitoring Spot, Single, All, Other Month and Reporting limits.
It saves 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 poses a significant challenge 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. This eliminates the need to gather this information directly from the exchange and manually determine the correct dates.
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 also represent and amend entire 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.
The FundApps Position Limits service automatically calculates the difference between the number of contracts held and the relevant limit, allowing trading teams to maximise trading capacity without breaching a limit.
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.
We make it simple to communicate position limits information to other teams quickly and efficiently. Receive a contract-specific notification as you approach a limit either using our default warning threshold or by setting your user-defined warning.
