Chi-X Japan Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of alternative trading venue operator Chi-X Global Holdings LLC, today announced the introduction of its Hosted Risk Controls (HRC), becoming the first market centre in Japan to offer this service.
Chi-X Japan HRC offers Chi-X Japan trading participants a customizable set of pre-trade risk controls - including notional limit, lot size, tradeable stock lists and max shares - for their clients.
"As participant needs continue to evolve and risk controls remain a critical component to their work flow, we are pleased that early adopters like Credit Suisse will be able to offer this service to their clients," said Yasuo Hamakake, CEO, Chi-X Japan.
"We are thrilled to have been involved with Chi-X launching this innovative new solution in Japan. HRC enables us to provide our clients with the most direct low-latency access in the market without compromising our commitment to comprehensive risk control," said Ross Whittaker, the head of product management for Japan at Credit Suisse's Advanced Execution Services unit in Tokyo.
