Morgan Stanley has implemented Traiana’s real-time FX margin solution. Traiana is a US-based company that provides banks, broker/dealers, buy-side firms and e-trading platforms with solutions to automate post trade processing of financial transactions.

According to Traiana, built on the proven architecture and functionality of Harmony, the solution provides real-time margining, and significant processing and through-put capability. The system handles margin, credit, prime brokerage, introducing brokers and retail trading relationships, and can also be used to cross-margin FX and futures.

Nick Solinger, chief marketing officer of Traiana, said: “Over the years our sell-side customers have told us there has been little innovation in FX margining. Given the significant changes in prime brokerage and retail FX, customers now require a state-of-the-art, scalable, real-time margin solution across FX products and futures.”

Todd Miller, managing director at Morgan Stanley, said: “Over the past few years, we’ve experienced tremendous growth across all client segments. In order to manage that growth, we are committed to investing in best-of-breed technology. After reviewing all options, we realized that Traiana’s margining solution not only met our needs today but could also scale to support our business needs in the future.”
