Rolfe & Nolan has launched a new single stock futures trading and processing solution to be deployed on an application service provider (ASP) basis.
The ASP solution is based on Rolfe & Nolan's derivatives back-office processing solution, RISC (the Real-time Information System for Commodities), and incorporates equity-oriented futures and options enhancements including margining, recapitalisation event handling, settlements, clearing interfaces and regulatory reporting.
The system provides users with an integrated STP solution for order capture and routing, pre-trade credit control, exchange connectivity, automated data delivery, and end-user account access over the Internet, says R&N.
Bob Sylverne, chief executive officer of Rolfe & Nolan, says: "Equity firms that are unprepared to handle futures-style processing may find themselves struggling to retain their base of trading-oriented clients. We are well positioned to help these firms achieve that 'first-to-market' status which is always crucial to gaining competitive advantage."
