FT-ORMS

There is no substitute for accurate, timely risk management. Current market conditions are not the only drivers to proper risk management. Our risk modeling is focused not just on today’s problems, but on event horizon: what do we face with product innovation?

FT-ORMS is a sophisticated risk management system that integrates instantaneous market conditions with customizable, account based and pro-active reporting of risk conditions and factors. The system is in a direct cooperation with the FT matching engine to enable early prevention of uncover able losses on customer accounts.

The FT risk management system (FT-ORMS) is able to calculate the position list and p&l values for different types of accounts like money manager accounts, brokers and long & short accounts etc.

There are several types of position closing methods that can be determined on account basis in the FT-ORMS system including FIFO, manual position closing by customers as well as a combination of intra day manual closing and end of day FIFO processing.

FT-ORMS allows position keepers close their positions with one click with its unique speed and variety of options like total closing of all daily positions on currency basis, total closing of all positions for a specific currency pair and matching of manually selected multiple open positions with each other. The new system with the addition of brand-new take-profit and stop-loss prices for orders is so simple and sound that risk management with FT-ORMS requires no more a professional knowledge on the area.

The client interface that FT-ORMS provides for dealers and risk managers is designed not only for the fastest access to the whole picture and but also to the most detailed reports on demand. These reports include risk views for different currency pairs, different market types (like options, futures or spot fx) and reports for manually determined account groups. The system refreshes itself on every single customer or hedge trade entry automatically to reflect the latest value at risk. The average prices of the net positions can be displayed according to various user defined methods like first-in-first-out or hedge trade priority.

Automatically stop loss trigger is one of the most useful and comprehensive features of the FT-ORMS system. It allows risk managers determine specific parameters on account basis for the prevention of uncoverable losses and aims to take action before the markets move too fast for an individual customer to react. There is a customizable offset from the zero liquidation value condition and a tick-based worst condition setting which triggers a course of actions to eliminate the total risk on the customer account by closing positions and cancelling working orders.

The FT middle office system serves as a second and account based position tracking module that allows dealers display the account value status of individual or group accounts with p&l and margin details according to the latest market prices.
