Succession Systems Deploys Market Access Risk Management Solution for Newedge US and Canadian IIROC Regulatory Compliance

Deployment Meets Canadian Regulatory Deadline of May 31st and Extends Newedge's Use of Succession Systems Across Geographies

NEW YORK and TORONTO, May 31, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Succession Systems announces the deployment of their TripleCheck© Market Access Risk Solution to meet Newedge Brokerage's regulatory requirements for automated trading risk controls in Canada and the United States.

Brokers in Canada were given until May 31st to deploy the trading controls needed to meet the IIROC rules. The rule mandates Brokers track the trading exposure of their clients in real time. To do this, market access risk systems conduct checks at the order (ticket) level, before the orders enter the market. The system then aggregates and analyzes the stream of orders across accounts to ensure position and credit limits can be enforced.

New automated trading regulations have been rolling out around the world after the United States authorized 15c3-5 in July 2011. Prior to the ruling, many Brokers relied on their overnight back office systems to reconcile the trades and calculate client positions. Today, the regulations insist these risk limits be enforced intra-day.

Microseconds count, real time consolidation of order flows across systems

"Compliance requires the consolidation of real time trading flows across many different trading technologies," comments Anthony Masso, CEO Succession Systems. "A Broker may have several different trading systems and the Market Access Risk System must adapt to all the platforms in use by clients," added Masso.

The Succession Systems solution named TripleCheck, consolidates, controls and reports on the trade flow emanating from third party trading platforms, direct market access routers, and co-located proprietary servers.

"The TripleCheck dashboard allows the compliance teams to see every trade -- nothing is missed," continues Masso. In addition, real time Market Access Risk Systems should operate at the highest speeds possible to avoid adding delays. "We tune the implementation to scan the orders in nanoseconds," explains Masso.
