Risk and Margin in the New Era of Volatility

Today, Acuiti and Sterling Trading Tech release Risk and Margin in the New Era of Volatility report.

This report is based on 55 responses from Senior Sell-Side Executives and investigates the increasing interconnectedness of risk monitoring and margin and how current sell-side systems are built to handle this in modern market conditions.

The key findings from this report are:

  • Regulatory and market pressure is growing to monitor risk and margin on a real time basis
  • 73% of respondents used between two and five risk systems, showing the burden and complexity of legacy infrastructure that firms have built up over the years
  • 64% of respondents take more than a week to implement risk and margin policy changes in their systems, timescales that are increasingly out of sync with fast changing market dynamics
  • Risk committee changes to parameters lag the real time demands of current day markets
  • 78% or respondents believe that a more dynamic risk and margin policy would provide a competitive edge​​​​​​
