Amid Increased APAC Regulatory Focus on Liquidity Resilience, Cassini Wins Best Portfolio Analysis Tool


SINGAPORE / LONDON / NEW YORK / SYDNEY, 24 June 2024 –  With the derivatives landscape characterized by ongoing constraints and regulators emphasizing margin transparency and resiliency, intelligent portfolio optimization has never been more crucial.

Cassini, the leading front-to-back solution providing margin and collateral analytics and optimization for derivatives users, has been awarded the prestigious title of Best Portfolio Analysis Tool at this year’s WatersTechnology Asia Awards. This accolade underscores Cassini’s unique capability in enabling portfolio managers to identify operational alpha by adapting strategies and portfolios to the most efficient trading routes.

The Asia-Pacific (APAC) market has recently seen significant regulatory developments regarding margin and collateral transparency. For instance, the Financial Stability Board (FSB) has proposed measures to enhance the liquidity preparedness of non-bank market participants for margin and collateral calls during market-wide stress. 

These recommendations focus on improving liquidity risk management and governance, stress testing, and scenario design, which align with Cassini’s capabilities in providing robust margin and collateral analytics, which include portfolio analysis and optimization. 

Additionally, recent regulatory consultations by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS), the Committee on Payments and Market Infrastructures (CPMI), and the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) emphasize the need for increased transparency and improved margin practices in centrally cleared markets.

Liam Huxley, Founder and CEO of Cassini, said: “We are thrilled to be recognized for our innovations in the derivatives trading space. Our offering allows firms to integrate post-trade insights into pre-trade processes in real time, enabling firms to adjust strategies and portfolios proactively. We will continue providing solutions that benefit both buy-side and sell-side firms globally looking to enhance their derivatives trading operations.”

The awards celebrate companies that innovate in financial markets and saw unprecedented entries in 2024. This year’s recognition further cements Cassini’s position as a leader in the financial technology sector. By providing robust analytical tools, Cassini helps firms navigate the complexities of derivatives trading, ensuring more informed decision-making and enhanced operational efficiency.
