Real-time analytics platform helps deliver services that enhance execution and risk management
StreamBase Systems today announces that Potamus Trading, a wholesale broker-dealer based in Boston, has selected StreamBase LiveView as a key element of their infrastructure and trading operations. StreamBase LiveView will be used to analyze trading performance, operations and financial risk in real-time, enabling live notifications and alerts on client orders, trade executions, and other live trading events.
“As a broker-dealer in today’s market, it is important that we are also a partner, a reliable liquidity provider, an electronic trading advisor, and an expert on algorithmic execution,” said Eric Pritchett, CEO of Potamus Trading. “StreamBase LiveView allows us to incorporate real-time analytics into our trading infrastructure, and assess trade performance. With a live view of trading activity and powerful real-time ad-hoc query capabilities, we can respond quickly and help our broker-dealer customers optimize their executions. Visibility also contributes to operational and financial risk management.”
“AITE Group recently reported that 87% of broker-dealers view the quality of client support in electronic execution as more important than algorithms.” said Mark Palmer, CEO of StreamBase. “StreamBase LiveView allows firms to eliminate the rear-view mirror style of customer support and provide real-time insight to clients, from risk management, infrastructure efficiency, cost analysis and compliance.”
