SuperDerivatives has launched SD-Funds, an online multi-asset derivatives platform, which combines accurate pricing, analytics, trading, risk management and compliance reporting. The new platform includes all pre-trade and post-trade activities with features specifically designed for hedge fund and asset managers, covering all assets and derivatives classes. Backward testing of strategies allows retroactive performance comparison of alternative derivatives trading strategies, based on detailed historical 12-year market data. Completed trades can be directly captured into fund administrators and prime broker systems using straight through processing (STP). SD-Funds incorporates the SuperDerivatives independent revaluation service (SD-Revaluation) utilizing the SuperDerivatives benchmark-pricing model. Compliance with various regulations, e.g. MiFID best execution, is also possible using features such as built-in automated price auditing.
