Flyer’s Risk Gateway

a.k.a. Formula One or F1 Gateway

Flyer’s multi-asset trade risk platform provides a unified solution for financial controls. Functions either as a FIX gateway and router, or as an out-of-band monitor, to seamlessly aggregate trades across accounts or underlying assets applying customized risk templates. Web dashboard provides visibility and alerts in real time.

Built on top of the Flyer FIX Engine, it offers unparalleled performance as a software risk gateway, leveraging all of the general purpose capabilities of the engine and providing seamless integration.

Gives you control when risk controls are breached

  • Warn with alerts — send an email or raise a Daytona alert, but pass the order through to the destination
  • Pause with alerts — requires manual intervention and routes the order to an internal blotter for manual intervention
  • Reject with alerts — reject the order with an explanation. Optionally raise an alert using our Daytona monitoring application

Formula One’s console application gives you control when risk checks are breached. Order messages that trigger the checks can raise alerts, send automatic rejects, or pause the workflow for manual intervention.

Risk Templates

Configure risk controls and extend boundaries per-order or by aggregated position, including compliance level risk.  Examples include:

  • Position Limits that are aggregated per asset class or by instrument so you can monitor entire risk exposure, supporting equities, options, and futures
  • Message Restrictions and validations, by approved FIX message types or symbols, market destination, and other parameters
  • System Level checks connection status, latency level checks
  • Notional Value and order quantity thresholds
  • Dynamic Price Rules that test price collars either raise warnings or are rejected Order Instruction check for illegal combinations of order modifiers
  • Stale Order checks that block transactions that are too old compared to the actual received time
  • Duplicate Order detection by order ID and other parameters
