Sterling Trading Tech’s (STT) cloud-based risk system, the Sterling Risk Engine (SRE), has gained significant traction in the industry during Q2 of 2019 with the addition of four new clients which will be utilizing Sterling’s cloud-based system. The new clients include three large clearing firms and a Chicago-based proprietary trading group. One of the clearing firms is replacing current risk products.
The Sterling Risk Engine (SRE) provides sophisticated analytics in a RaaS (Risk as a Service) solution. Sterling is a leading proponent of RaaS. The SRE continuously calculates the OCC CPM, based on TIMS methodology for each account as well as having the capability to set specific firm specific house rules.
RAAS allows for on-demand analysis in near real-time as opposed to scheduled batches. RaaS also does not require a substantial hardware investment.
