Straight-Through Processing

Straight-Through Processing (STP)

If it takes too long or costs too much for trading teams to connect to a new venue, the effort can outweigh the opportunity – and everyone loses out.

  • With Inforalgo, it’s possible to set up straight-through connections to back-office order management systems and risk systems in a matter of days or even hours – and at a fraction of the cost of proprietary or custom-built links.
  • Better still, we enable split-second data transfer speeds with outstanding accuracy.

We handle both straightforward and more complex STP scenarios, with automated pre- and post-trade workflow right across the transaction lifecycle.

Point-to-point STP: direct, high-speed venue connections on demand

Even if you just have one venue you want to connect to, for fast data exchange (pre and/or post trade), we can give you sub-second data flows – and without the need to install any physical systems if you use our platform on a hosted, software-as-a-service basis.

  • There’s no need to do any integration work to start exchanging data.
  • This doesn’t require any effort on your part, you are getting connected to an online facility you can plug in and switch on.
When a client set up a new fixed income primary dealer trading desk in Chicago, dealing primarily with US Treasuries, it needed a direct electronic connection to meet its reporting obligations.
Our SaaS option saved a potential spend of tens of thousands of dollars, and removed the need for special internal systems or expertise. Working with the venues directly, we set everything up, switched the client on and trading began.

Future-proofing: a roadmap to Intelligent automation

Once data automation is optimised, reliable and efficient, data can start to work harder and deliver more for multiple business purposes:

Potential applications include

  • Managing exceptions using machine learning and a chatbot interface
  • Automated data validation for regulatory reporting – avoiding manual reconciliation work

These and other ideas are part of our near-term roadmap to drive greater automation and reduce risk. Ask us what’s coming next…

Complex STP/STP consolidation

Because our platform is modular in design, it’s quick and easy to add automated STP feeds from existing bespoke or proprietary platforms, and to consolidate all activity in one place – enabling greater simplicity and visibility, and lower running and support costs. Savings could add up to seven-figure sums across 10 or more venues.

Benefits:

  • A consolidated view of trading history
    • Even if you’re still running multiple instances of STP for different venues, we can automate the flow of data to and from all of the different systems and create a meaningful overall picture of activity
  • Consistency & continuity
    • Whether you add new trading venues, or external formats change,
      you’ll continue to get the data you need in the way you need it.
  • Track the entire trade lifecycle
    • Quickly vet new opportunities & hone risk assessments with
      more holistic and timely insights
