TRADExpress RealTime Clearing

Comprehensive real-time clearing solution for OTC and exchange-traded markets

Capital-efficient clearing services

Cinnober’s award-winning TRADExpress™ RealTime Clearing helps clearinghouses meet the ever increasing demands of the post-trade value chain with integrated position keeping, real-time risk and collateral management, as well as settlement, across markets.

By leveraging real-time cross-asset clearing, clearinghouses can offer increasingly competitive and capital-efficient services. The ability to cross margin and net offset client positions reduces collateral requirements, while unified settlement processes enable more efficient cash management.

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