     London, 9th September 2013: BCS Prime Brokerage (‘BCS’), the international arm of the largest trader of equities and derivatives on the Russian exchange, has appointed Succession Systems to launch a pre-trade Market Access Risk system, TripleCheck©.   The system delivers ultra-low latency risk management for Direct Market Access (“DMA”) clients including proprietary and algorithmic trading firms.

    Succession Systems was selected from more than 15 vendors to implement the TripleCheck system and develop custom functionality for BCSThe system is designed to fully comply with the SEC Rule 15c3-5 and the variations needed by different venues and geographies around the world.

     The system has a wide range of controls from basic “fat finger” checks to complex multi-market portfolio margin limit calculations.   A fully functional dashboard allows compliance teams to monitor, adjust and control trade flows in real time.   Performance testing has demonstrated high stability and through-put of up to 10,000 orders per second.

    Tim Bevan, Head of International Prime Sales commented:

    “To remain at the forefront of what we do, and to continue to exceed our clients’ expectations, BCS is committed to bringing innovative solutions to the market to capitalize on the growing demand for fast and efficient trade flows with Russia.

     We are currently looking to add markets, specific asset classes, client-oriented functions and liquidity services, and our appointment of Succession Systems will ensure we are able to consistently deliver cost-efficient, fast, flexible and comprehensive solutions.”

     Vladimir Pozdnyakov, Head of Risk & Liquidity Services commented:

      “BCS treats risk management systems not only as internal broker security tool but also as a keystone for a number of unique client-oriented products which will allow our clients to benefit from more efficient risk off-setting and improved funding. Our alliance with Succession Systems and dedicated project teams provides us with ultimate flexibility and speed in development and implementation of these new services.”
