Cassini Systems announces initial margin partnership with AcadiaSoft

Cassini Systems, pre- and post-trade margin analytics provider, announced a new initial margin (IM) partnership with risk and collateral management services provider, AcadiaSoft Inc. The collaboration will give Cassini clients automated access to AcadiaSoft’s reconciliation platform, Initial Margin Exposure Manager (IMEM), creating a one-stop shop for IM requirements across cleared and bilateral over-the-counter (OTC) and exchange-traded derivatives transactions.

Cassini clients will be able to use the firm’s pre-trade analytics to make key decisions on how best to execute a transaction, as well as forecast and optimize their portfolios. The partnership will enable them to send Cassini-generated CRIF (Common Risk Interchange Format) end-of-day files to IMEM for reconciliation on the AcadiaPlus platform. IMEM is reconciliation and dispute management platform for uncleared Initial Margin.

Cassini Systems CEO & Founder Liam Huxley noted:

Liam Huxley

In these times of extreme market volatility and enormous margin swings, it’s particularly vital for market participants to not only ensure they meet the challenges of Uncleared Margin Rules but also understand and manage the true cost of every transaction, from the pre-trade stage all the way to post-trade operations. By providing an integrated Cassini-to-AcadiaSoft workflow, our mutual clients can benefit from front-to-back margin optimization and operational automation.

Fred Dassori, AcadiaSoft’s Head of Strategic Development, commented:

Our partnership with Cassini Systems reduces the burden of IM management on our mutual clients. By offering more options, we’re giving Cassini users the ability to leverage the AcadiaPlus platform across the straight-through processing lifecycle, providing a one-stop shop for IM requirements.
