TS Imagine’s platform displays our risk, profit and loss and margin analytics side-by-side, while lowering our total cost of ownership across exchange and OTC trading.”
He added “The excellent work of both the TS Imagine and ED&F Man Capital Markets teams has allowed us to successfully deliver on a reduced timeline to integrate, test and go live with the new platform within a few months.”
Andrew Morgan, Chief Revenue Officer at TS Imagine, concluded “Client expectations and market conditions have pushed clearing firms to accelerate the transformation of their legacy systems. In parallel, firms are looking for ways to more efficiently manage risk and margin as their clients continue to demand greater levels of transparency.
