TRADExpress RealTime Clearing

A comprehensive real-time clearing solution for OTC and exchange-traded markets

Capital-efficient clearing services

The award-winning TRADExpress™ RealTime Clearing meets increasing demands on the post-trade value chain. A unique asset-class agnostic architecture enables integrated position keeping, real-time risk and collateral management and settlement across markets.

Cross-asset real-time clearing means your clearinghouse can offer competitive and capital-efficient services. The ability to cross margin and net offset client positions reduces collateral requirements, while settlement processes are unified for more efficient cash management.

Risk is monitored and managed in real time using multiple algorithms for margin calculation and collateral valuation. This enables intraday margin calls to manage exceeded risk limits instantly.
