Front Arena provides profit and loss reporting and risk metrics to support Capula’s trading decisions
Capula Investment Management has selected SunGard’s Front Arena, a real-time, integrated cross-asset trading platform, to help manage its trading and risk management functions.
SunGard said that its Front Arena will provide Capula with advanced profit and loss reporting and risk metrics to support its trading decisions. The SunGard system replaces an in-house system and will help Capula increase the scalability of its operations.
SunGard has said that Front Arena will also give Capula the capacity it needs to meet the demand for fixed income portable alpha and fixed income long-only mandates, with a quicker time to market.
John Dai, partner and chief risk officer at Capula Investment Management, said: We selected SunGard’s Front Arena because our validation exercises showed that Front Arena calculates valuation metrics with a high degree of accuracy, something required in global fixed income trading. It also provides global coverage of instruments, while the extension framework makes it relatively easy to integrate internal systems and third-party tools into Front Arena, providing a wide range of functionality to our investment, risk management and operational teams.
