Knight Capital Group (Nasdaq: NITE) today introduced NetDelta, an electronic settlement platform for the credit derivatives market.

NetDelta addresses market infrastructure inefficiencies and underlying risks inherent in OTC derivatives by providing buy- and sell-side firms with comprehensive, real-time solutions for entering, maintaining and exiting new positions. NetDelta will also be able to reduce counterparty risk for existing positions in the near future.

"NetDelta was designed to address unnecessary counterparty risk, balance sheet inefficiencies, settlement lags, valuation issues and a lack of liquidity," said Lucio Biase, Managing Director, NetDelta, LLC. "NetDelta provides the automation and infrastructure the $54.6 trillion credit derivatives market needs."

The NetDelta solution benefits traders, prime brokerages, risk managers, controllers and settlement groups. It is applicable to new trades and will soon be applicable to existing positions in a firm's portfolio as well. The NetDelta offering also addresses many of the key principles recently set forth by the Operations Management Group (OMG) and President's Working Group (PWG) - both of which aim to instill a clear, functional and well-designed infrastructure that can meet the needs of the OTC derivatives markets.

"We are excited to bring NetDelta to the OTC derivatives markets in these challenging times," said Thomas M. Joyce, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Knight Capital Group. "We believe NetDelta is an ideal solution for the entire lifecycle of credit derivative trades. Importantly, the NetDelta solution supports the credit derivative market makers who are so vital to the health of the market."

The platform's modular technology allows for simple integration into existing trading platforms, settlement services and reporting engines. In addressing market infrastructure and legacy issues, the NetDelta solution renders unwinds and novations obsolete for positions cleared on NetDelta. NetDelta also allows for greater transparency of the value of each position without disclosing pivotal market making data. At present, NetDelta is internally beta testing the platform and in the process of onboarding clients.
