Applying Real-time Risk Controls to Futures and Options Trading

In today’s high-speed, global markets, financial firms are executing trades in global futures and options markets, spanning multiple asset classes and geographies. But improving real-time oversight of their exposures can be challenging in a complex market structure. With volatility and intraday swings becoming the new normal triggered by the European debt crisis and US budget deficits, real-time risk controls are needed to not only protect firms against exposures but also to gain competitive advantage. As new derivatives trading regulations take shape, firms will need to apply these risk tools to over the counter derivatives and exchange-listed instruments.

Join a panel of your peers to discuss current risk management challenges and what technologies and strategies can help trading firms improve their risk controls.
