Discover how Rapid Addition can help you compete in today’s financial markets

Client Onboarding

A poor onboarding experience can lose a client before they ever place an order – at minimum, it can undermine hard won reputations.  Rapid Addition’s protocol and asset class agnostic platform translates any messaging format, making configuration and conformance testing easy and slashing the time to onboard new clients.

Pre-Trade Risk

Risk filters need to be highly performant, implementing critical checks without adding latency. Rapid Addition combines the speed of FPGA with software configurability, catering for the broadest range of client types and trading strategies, while meeting the most exacting performance benchmarks. Quickly deploy your business rules and update them intraday for ultimate levels of client responsiveness.

Intelligence Routing/SOR

Increasingly stringent best-execution obligations and competition for order flow means that fast implementation of changes to routing logic is essential to retaining clients.  Rapid Addition provides an agile framework to seamlessly test and deploy your unique smart routing logic and algorithms together with the ability to tune and update them intra-day.

Conduct Risk Monitoring

Sell-side trading firms face intense scrutiny and severe penalties for breaches of behaviour and conduct rules.  Rapid Addition helps you mitigate such risks by giving customers a forensic view of real-time order flow, validating order logic behaviour and monitoring for breaches, disorderly trading and market abuse.

Liquidity Aggregation

Liquidity is fragmenting across most asset classes, which is driving up costs for sell-side brokers.  Rapid Addition’s flexible Open API platform can rapidly build adapters to both FIX and proprietary protocol liquidity sources, translating messages to whichever format is needed by the broker’s internal systems to reduce cost and complexity.

Post-Trade Integration

With increased regulatory obligations and tighter budgets, sell-side firms are continually searching for operational and cost efficiencies.  Seamless integration with middle and back-office systems is simplified by Rapid Addition’s scalable Open API platform, enabling secure electronic message flow throughout the organisation and when connecting with counterparties.

FIX Order Enablement

The lack of an ability to trade electronically can be a barrier for small brokers who want to broaden their client offering by leveraging the liquidity access of larger sell-side counterparts.  Rapid Addition’s web-based user interface, modern Cloud delivery, and secure global order routing network are a cost effective and fast way to implement electronic trading for the first time.
