Traiana has added capabilities to its pre-trade credit checking hub CreditLink to enable streamlined post-trade processing for buy-side firms trading electronic credit default swaps (CDSs) and interest rate swaps.
The new version of CreditLink will allow buy-side market participants trading on swap execution facilities (SEFs) to manage the allocations process for bunched orders, receive real-time notifications of SEF orders and executions, and allows them to monitor margin requirements and limits across the entire trade lifecycle.
"Buy-side market participants trading on SEFs have pre- and post-trade requirements that impact not only their trading teams, but also their compliance and risk management processes," says Nick Solinger, Traiana's head of product strategy. "Extending our services to the buy side provides greater visibility and flexibility, which supports the ongoing development of a smoothly functioning market in a new regulatory environment."
According to the vendor, over 600 buy-side client organizations have managed their pre-trade clearing certainty using CreditLink, and over 72,000 accounts from both buy-side and over-the-counter (OTC) clearing futures commission merchants (FCMs) have connected to CreditLink.
