Calypso recognized as a leader based on responsiveness and product coverage
Calypso Technology Inc., a leading provider of cross-asset front-to-back technology solutions for financial markets, today announced that the TABB Group has recognized Calypso as one of the leaders in its assessment of new risk systems for the buy side.
This finding was presented in TABB’s recent research report, “Margin Call: New Risk Tools for the Buy Side,” in which 50 buy side firms were interviewed, including large and medium-sized asset managers, hedge funds, banks and insurance companies.
“The leaders were chosen based on completeness of product offering and speed of innovation in responding to changes in the capital markets. We view these critical aspects of delivery as key differentiators in the front-to-back office system space,” states Sol Steinberg, principal of OTC Partners, who co-authored the report.
The report explains that “In a collateral-hungry world, the ability to anticipate, source, deliver and reconcile funding requirements in real time will prove essential. Historically, dealing with margin management was a reactive function conducted at the end of the trading cycle. Today, the buy side is upgrading its technology to deliver a holistic, front-to-back view of their global collateral assets so they can explore multiple sourcing and funding options in real time."
Post financial crisis, the Calypso solution has been ahead of the curve in providing innovative solutions to keep pace with the changing regulatory landscape, particularly around OTC trading. Calypso’s aim is to keep on designing innovative tools so that both sell side and buy side firms can modernize their core trading and risk functions while optimizing funding and collateral, and reducing operational costs.
“We are extremely proud of this recognition by the TABB Group as a leader in new risk tools for the buy side,” claims Charles Marston, Chairman and CEO of Calypso Technology. “Our mission since inception has been to be the leader in capital markets technology. This result is validation of our commitment to our customers and our ability to continuously innovate and address relevant issues that the market is facing."
