Rolfe & Nolan systems address volume spike with capacity to spare

Boca Raton, Florida, and London - 15 March 2007

Leading listed derivatives processing software provider Rolfe & Nolan highlighted how its systems managed the increased trading volumes of recent months.

“Our systems performed very well with the increased number of trades that are being thrown at them,” said Bob Sylverne, CEO of Rolfe & Nolan Systems Inc. “Our philosophy when handling volume is to anticipate the increased capacity that we’ll need when we build and maintain our systems. People don’t realize that we are continually working with our customers and investing in processing and product innovation designed to increase our capacity – for future growth and for volume surges – so that we can continue to give customers the first class service that they need.”

Sylverne outlined that volumes for February had increased over 40% year on year, with peak days being up to 40% above the average for the month.

“It’s the same picture with our order routing solution, RANorder,” continued Sylverne. “In the past six months our volumes have been running at up to 50% over the previous year.”

Sylverne concluded: “Rolfe & Nolan has been in the F&O business for over 30 years. We know the issues. Handling spikes in volume is ‘business as usual’ for us.”
