Products and services

- Hanweck Options Analytics: Streaming real-time analytics and prices including Greeks and volatilities for use in pre-trade decision support and risk management. Also includes real-time scenario analysis used in critical risk management and margin computations. This product is delivered as a data feed at the individual security level, meaning that it is completely “portfolio agnostic” and client positions do not need to be disclosed.

- Hanweck Portfolio Analytics: Real-time calculation of portfolio scenario and exposure risk on a broad set of asset classes. This product is “portfolio aware” as it takes into account the unique positions of a client to calculate aggregated portfolio-level risk.

- Hanweck Margin Analytics: Leveraging Hanweck’s extensive experience with the STANS margining methodology, Hanweck has developed a unique suite of Margin Analytics, including real-time monitoring of OCC STANS and TIMS margin, margin attribution, collateral optimization, and stress testing. This product responds to heightened regulatory demands and the need for clearing firms to monitor risk in real time as well as to optimize the mix of funds used to meet margin requirements.

Hanweck analytics cover derivatives instruments (listed options, futures, and options on futures) traded on all major exchanges across North America, EMEA, and Asia Pacific  in real-time with tick-level, up-to-the-millisecond pricing, and corresponding ticking history (10+ years) including historical and T+0 reference data.

Firms across the derivatives trading ecosystem rely on Hanweck analytics as their foundation for applications, risk dashboards and models.
