Cinnober’s TRADExpress CCP Risk offers a single point of access, enabling efficient risk and collateral management across all asset classes and instruments cleared by the CCP.
The first customer to implement the system is Japan Exchange Group, which plans to go live during 2018 with its new risk solution across the entire Japanese market of equities, bonds, futures, options, credit default swaps and interest rate swaps.
According to Cinnober, TRADExpress CCP Risk enables CCPs to run multiple risk models in parallel, allowing them to “migrate from old models to new, more sophisticated statistical approaches better fit for today’s versatile array of cleared contracts”.
“CCPs need to avoid overburdening market participants with excessive margin requirements without becoming a systemic risk to the financial industry,” said Mikael Öhman, chief architect risk solutions at Cinnober.
“For this, new methods and procedures that give a full view across all asset classes and instrument types are required, and that’s what we’re introducing with TRADExpress CCP Risk.”
