Orc Group AB: Renewed Orc offering combines future proof, flexible technology platforms with expert services

Orc Group AB (STO:ORC):

New Trading and Electronic Execution solutions together with Professional Services deliver unparalleled value proposition.

Orc, a global leader in derivatives trading technology, today announced a renewed and expanded solutions offering. Building on Orc’s technology leadership, industry expertise and commitment to R&D, new Trading and Electronic Execution offerings are now introduced, backed by Professional Services.

“A key element in any successful electronic trading operation is a robust, flexible technology platform which allows for customization and adaptation as technology advances and business needs change,” said Jesper Alfredsson, Chief Strategy Officer, Orc Group AB. “Our renewed and expanded offering is designed to deliver on this vision, together with our ambition to build long term partnerships with clients and ensure that they can focus on maintaining their unique competitive edge.”

Orc’s Trading offering is a complete solution for derivatives trading, including a wide range of functionality from pricing, analysis and decision support to execution and post trade risk management. New order routing, pre-trade risk and entitlements products have been added lately to further strengthen the offering in the areas of best execution and market regulation.

The new Electronic Execution offering has evolved from Orc’s re-architected connectivity platform. It delivers an unmatched buy-side to sell-side offering for high frequency derivatives trading.

“One of the challenges for our clients is to manage derivatives institutional order flow with easy access to the markets of their preference in an efficient way, especially in the area of risk management and compliance,” said Jesper Alfredsson. “In addition to our global connectivity, we also provide the execution tools needed to manage high volume, latency-sensitive order flow. This includes integrated tools for risk management and compliance leveraging our vast experience in derivatives trading.”

Orc solutions are complemented by the newly launched Professional Services, which help clients integrate and customize the Orc offering to their specific needs, allowing them to reduce time to market, complexity and costs for managing change.

“Many firms are challenged to stay ahead of changes in technology, markets or the regulatory landscape,” said Jesper Alfredsson. “Relying on our expertise and profound experience, our Professional Services help clients dedicate in-house engineering resources to their most strategic development projects, while trusting us to implement, customize and integrate Orc solutions.”

The renewed offering underscores Orc’s lasting commitment to creating value and results by innovation, which means that tools and technology are continuously refined for enhanced performance and expanded with new products and functionality.
