Technology Awards 2017 – Best Trading and Execution Platform

Best Trading and Execution Platform

NUMERIX

2017 proved to be a strong equity year for structured products on the back of positive momentum from Trump’s 2016 election victory. According to experts in the structured products space, investors retained market exposure in a measured manner, particularly as US and Japanese indices reached all-time highs alongside a revival of European, Hong Kong and Chinese stocks.

As structured product-centric technology vendors battled for a bigger slice of the private banking pie, Numerix’s Oneview Distribution, an OTC derivatives, structured product price discovery and request for quote (RFQ) automation platform, cemented its status as an analytics powerhouse and the standout performer in 2017.

Oneview Distribution boasts a deep roster of clients in the region that continues to grow. As a seamless front-to-back system, the platform helps private banks automate price discovery, RFQs and order execution, ensuring maximum efficiency and productivity for relationship managers and traders involved in the life cycle of structured products.

In particular, the enhancements Numerix made to the platform, including a real-time API-based interface for its private banking clients, have meant that as soon as requests become orders, system checks with the core banking system are near-instantaneous.

This integration is critical for pricing and execution platforms as it ensures that the end-client has sufficient credit and can take on the risk required to invest in a structured product—an area of constant focus for regulators from a client suitability standpoint.

Further separating it from its rivals, the platform boasts a one-of-the-kind ability to handle non-flow, exotic OTC products. With Numerix’s independent analytics library, and its clout in analytics and risk, the firm can offer bespoke data analysis and ensure that clients receive thorough market insight.

Numerix is Asian Private Banker’s Best Trading and Execution Platform for 2017.
