Global Central Order Routing
and Execution Management System Offered as Modular Component;
Easily Integrated into RTD GUARD Risk Management

RTS Realtime Systems Group, a leading global trading solutions
provider, announced today the worldwide launch of an off-the-shelf
matching system, RTD CORE.  The Central Order Routing and
Execution System can help firms not only handle their internal and
external order routing and matching needs across global markets,
but more easily manage their global exposure, share vital
information internally and reduce costs.

The multi-asset class matching engine includes high-speed access
to more than 130 exchange venues globally - with co-located access
to more than 65 of these marketplaces - and the ability to support
over-the-counter (OTC) transactions and cash markets.  RTD
CORE uses industry-standard FIX technology to provide an open
platform that integrates easily into the new RTD GUARD risk
management offering announced last week, as well as firms’ existing
infrastructure, risk management systems and other components of the
trade flow cycle.  It is available as a fully hosted ASP
(application services provider) outsourced solution.

Steffen Gemuenden, RTS CEO, said: “In recent years, we developed
a customized matching system that we deployed globally for a few of
our largest clients, particularly those specializing in commodity
trading on markets across the world.  These firms with
extremely high standards were very pleased with the robust,
high-performance technology and broad range of features available.
We’ve now taken this proven system and enhanced the features to
expand the offering into RTD CORE, an off-the-shelf, scalable
solution that all interested firms can use.  Because risk
management is such a vital part of any order routing and execution
system, our clients can plug and play this next generation solution
in concert with our RTD GUARD risk management offering, or
integrate it seamlessly into their own risk solutions.”

Products traded and matched on RTD CORE will include equities,
futures, options, foreign exchange, interest rates and custom OTC
products.  Clients can include exchanges, OTC platforms,
brokerage firms, supply chain management firms, commodity trading
houses, hedge desks and swap execution facilities (SEFs) created by
the Dodd-Frank Act, among others. RTD CORE provides multiple
interfaces to exchange clearing facilities.

Gemuenden said RTD CORE is particularly appealing to firms with
many traders spanning markets globally.  Through the solution,
the activity of all traders is visible in real time to risk and
compliance managers around the globe. The ability to share
information and display trade opportunities internally and securely
enables users to reduce or even eliminate the bid/ask spread, as
well as avoid establishing unnecessary excessive hedge positions.
The concept of effectively offsetting positions is similar to that
used by clearing houses in providing margin offsets, but it applies
in this case to large firms who can achieve the efficiencies for
themselves and their clients while ensuring that they have
effectively managed their risk.
