NASDAQ OMX Introduces TradeGuard to Expand Access Services Suite of
Risk Management Solutions

29.01.2014 / 15:39


A Single Platform for Pre- and Post-Trade Risk Management

NEW YORK, 2014-01-29 15:39 CET (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
The NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:NDAQ) and its Access Services business today
announced TradeGuard, a comprehensive solution for all levels of risk
management and an expansion of the enterprise risk management platform formerly
known as FTEN. TradeGuard will allow customers to choose from a broad product
suite for a range of risk management support, from building a custom risk
solution to supplementing internal systems. 

RiskXposure (RX), a leading risk management engine, will still serve as the
central backbone of the TradeGuard platform. Customers will have access to all
solutions they currently use as well as new and improved solutions offered by
NASDAQ OMX's Access Services business. TradeGuard's new suite features three
innovative products, new markets and asset classes, and improved gateways and
risk monitoring systems. RiskWay is a software based, trade control gateway for
trading equities that allows customers to access multiple markets with latency
below 10 microseconds and added risk controls provided by all products within
the TradeGuard suite. External Gateway Manager (EGM) is an intermediary
solution that allows any third party gateways to be controlled by the
TradeGuard RX engine to manage risk with pre-trade controls for protection
against trading that violates pre-set limits. Similar to EGM, Risk Wrapper is a
leading post-trade and front-end tool designed to measure risk at the network
level by capturing traffic directly and comparing the trading activity against
all network traffic to identify any abnormal activity. 

'As the risk needs of our customers have evolved, so have we,' said Stacie
Swanstrom, Senior Vice President of Access Services at NASDAQ OMX. 'The
metamorphosis of our risk management solutions into TradeGuard will allow our
customers to leverage an all-inclusive platform to manage multiple levels of
risk monitoring. TradeGuard's advanced suite of solutions will bring customers'
risk management capabilities closer to the point of trade, empowering them with
deeper insight to safely and effectively manage their businesses.' 

About TradeGuard: TradeGuard is a comprehensive, full-service risk management
suite offering a range of tools to address the complex trading landscape.
TradeGuard allows customers to pick and choose from a broad product suite for a
range of support, from building a custom risk solution to simply filling in

OMX exchange risk tools available, the new suite also features monitoring for
new markets and asset classes, improved gateways, and supplemental risk
monitoring systems. Whether you're a broker, sponsor, hedge fund, or clearing
