ferdecTS® 5.0 Release Announcement

November 30th, 2018 Posted by News 0 thoughts on “ferdecTS® 5.0 Release Announcement”

FERDEC is delighted to announce the latest release of its energy and commodity specialised transaction surveillance software – ferdecTS® R5.0

 

Friday, 30th November 2018 – Berlin. This release features several enhancements to both the market leading ferdecTS® analytics engine and to client usability features. Many of these enhancements were customer led. “This release is a fantastic example of how we at FERDEC place our clients at the heart of our roadmap development and prioritisation process”, says Christian Endter, MD of FERDEC. “We strongly believe that by working closely with our clients, who have day to day experiences using ferdecTS® in live market conditions, we are best able to further hone our solution by applying the practical lessons learnt through hands-on experience to the benefit of all our users”.

A significant enhancement is the new, configurable Grouping function that allows the user to group or to isolate the same instrument across the venues or broker platforms on which it is traded. For example, if a particular gas contract is traded on PEGAS as well as through brokers on Trayport, the ferdecTS® analytics engine applies its market leading analysis logic separately to each instance giving Compliance the flexibility to see the market as regulators and exchanges might. Indeed, this scenario featured in a high-profile enforcement case in 2018 and demonstrates that ferdecTS® remains firmly aligned to market developments. The same principle applies at the client level where ferdecTS® may now be configured to group or isolate trading activities by desk, business units or even by legal entity. Crucially, this is not a superficial enhancement but rather is deeply integrated into the market abuse indicator and pattern calculation logic in the ferdecTS® analytics engine.

Other usability and functional enhancements include:

  • Significant improvements to the speed and configurability of the ferdecTS® data viewer functionality.
  • Greater user configurability for the ferdecTS® market replay functionality.
  • Introduction of a MiFID II ‘hedge trade’ flag to support drill down analysis for MAR instruments.
  • Introduction of dynamic parameters for the Physical Withholding monitor.
  • Significant performance run improvements due to material enhancements to our pre-processing and staging table approach.

CubeLogic and FERDEC announce partnership for Transaction Surveillance

November 7th, 2018 Posted by News 0 thoughts on “CubeLogic and FERDEC announce partnership for Transaction Surveillance”

ferdecTS® sophisticated MAR/MAD II/REMIT transaction surveillance capabilities to be fully integrated within the RiskCubed risk management platform

 

Wednesday, 7th November 2018 – London and Berlin. CubeLogic, the leader in business intelligence (BI) enabled risk management solutions and FERDEC, the market leader in MAR/MAD II/REMIT transaction surveillance solutions for physical and financial Energy and Commodity markets, announce a strategic partnership to enable CubeLogic’s clients to leverage the sophisticated transaction surveillance capabilities of the ferdecTS® solution directly from within the RiskCubed suite.

Increasing demand for transaction surveillance functionality inspired CubeLogic to seek partner solutions to complement the capabilities of its RiskCubed risk management platform. FERDEC’s unrivalled expertise in European physical and financial Energy and Commodity markets made it the natural choice. The ferdecTS® engine can detect potential market abuse patterns arising from the manipulation of physical characteristics of transactions, as well as purely financial aspects which other surveillance tools are typically limited to.

Available with plug-and-play market data interfaces, the ferdecTS® engine will be integrated with RiskCubed’s powerful data management, workflow and BI analysis tools so that CubeLogic clients benefit from a cost-effective solution that is far more than the sum of the parts. With a full SaaS deployment option and pre-calibrated alerts, the ferdecTS® engine can be deployed quickly to ramp-up transaction surveillance capabilities to meet any regulatory challenge.

Tony Frangiamore, MD EMEA CubeLogic, comments, “there is an active replacement market developing where organisations with significant exposure to physical Energy and Commodity markets opted for tools from a financial market background in a first wave and are now seeing the limitations of those solutions. The FERDEC partnership, conceived specifically to address this trend, fits within the wider CubeLogic strategy of integrating best of breed analytical components for different markets to offer its clients a one stop shop risk management solution according to their specific needs.”

Christian Endter, Managing Director of FERDEC, comments, “we are glad to enter into this partnership with CubeLogic. Clients will benefit from the most comprehensive and sophisticated risk management and compliance solution in the E/CTRM landscape. This partnership provides Energy and Commodity trading organisations with the most advanced and convenient market abuse pattern recognition (Transaction Surveillance) solution in the market. Few firms have a better appreciation of the value of a “Golden Source” for trading-related data than CubeLogic.”

CubeLogic provides business intelligence enabled risk management products and services for the energy, commodity and financial markets. The founders of CubeLogic are experienced industry specialists who have an impressive track record of developing and implementing global risk IT solutions.
