Inferno – Trade Capture

Inferno provides all the post-trade processing functionality used by Middle Office, Operations, Treasury and Finance professionals across the globe.  Capturing trade information across all asset classes accurately and in real-time is a cornerstone of the Inferno system and we have therefore made this as flexible and simple as possible.

We can accept trade information in any format.  Examples that clients currently use include XML, FpML and FIX.  We can also use APIs provided by front office vendors to connect directly to their system and extract trades – for example, this is how we typically obtain trade data from Fidessa.

You can deliver trade information to us using almost any mechanism you choose, from a simple end-of-day file over sftp, to real-time trade messaging using MQ series.

Once we have the trade message, Inferno will validate and enrich it with data.

The validation process is completely flexible and Inferno will generate different types of exceptions depending on the validation rule.  Some exceptions cannot be overridden – data has to be corrected before the trade will be allowed through the system (for example – missing counterparty information).  Some exceptions can be overridden but only by users with the appropriate permissions (for example – a warning that the trade date is too far in the past) .  It is also possible to require multiple approvals before allowing the trade to proceed.

The enrichment process is also completely configurable – Inferno can calculate charges, financial transaction tax and other amounts; it can work out the place of settlement and obtain the SSIs needed to settle the trade; it can add informational fields to the trade message; it can calculate accrued interest and a clean or dirty price – the possibilities are endless.

Inferno also provides the ability to manually book trades either singly via Deal Entry or in bulk via Trade Upload.  Trade information can be assembled in an Excel spreadsheet and simply pasted into Trade Upload.   Exactly the same validation and enrichment occurs on these trades (viewable before the trade is submitted) as would occur on trades fed from the front office.  Manually booked trades can also be held up for approval if required.

The Inferno Trade Capture model provides the perfect starting point for building your Inferno post-trade processing solution.
