TS Imagine Cassini Systems announced a strategic partnership that will see enhanced, intelligent margin and collateral analytics available through TS Imagine’s product suite. TS Imagine is a cross-asset provider of real-time trading, portfolio, and risk management solutions for financial institutions and Cassini is a provider of pre-and post-trade margin and collateral analytics for derivatives market participants.
The partnership means that users of TS Imagine’s technology will benefit from access to Cassini’s intelligent analytics across over the counter (OTC) and exchange traded derivatives (ETD) products, complementing the firm’s existing suite of proprietary cross-asset analytics. Cassini’s highly specialized offering will give investment and risk teams front-to-back margin and cost analysis across the entire lifecycle of a trade.
Cassini’s platform provides the only full front-to-back solution covering margin, collateral and cost analytics for all classes of cleared and uncleared OTC derivatives as well as futures and options. The partnership allows integration of these core competencies within TS Imagine’s product suite, enabling users to bring post-trade analytics into the pre-trade process
With this integration, TS Imagine users will now be able to calculate margin requirements and optimize collateral usage in derivatives markets, as well as analyze drivers and movement in margin exposure, reduce initial margin levels and maximize margin efficiency.
Andrew Morgan, president and chief revenue officer at TS Imagine, said in a statement: “Working closely with Cassini, we can help investment and risk management teams streamline workflows, cut complexity and control their total cost of ownership. This partnership will draw on the strong synergies between our businesses to deliver our clients best-in-breed functionality through a single system – a significant advantage in fast-paced markets.”
Liam Huxley, CEO and founder of Cassini Systems, said in a statement: “We have built Cassini System’s margin and collateral analytics capabilities over many years to help firms trade and manage their exposures in highly complex derivatives markets. This partnership is an important milestone for both firms, opening our powerful customized calculations and analytics to new audiences in combination with TS Imagine’s technology to empower users across the hedge fund and prime brokerage space.”
