CME Group pioneers real-time risk architecture
CME Group, the world’s leading and most diverse derivatives marketplace, operates in a highly-regulated market – and one that has undergone significant change. New and pending mandates, particularly around clearing, have had a significant impact on its business as well as that of its clients.
CME Group’s expanded role in the reformed derivatives landscape means it has an even bigger responsibility for managing risk. In July 2012, CME Group was designated as a systemically important Financial Market Utility under Title VIII of the Dodd-Frank Act by the Financial Stability Oversight Council (“FSOC”).
CME Group continuously assesses and enhances the technology it uses to manage risk. In conjunction with these changes, CME Group’s technology team sought to identify how technology could help CME Clearing react to widespread market evolution and equip risk analysts
with more robust risk management tools.
