SLIB, a provider of software and services for the financial industry, has extended its risk management platform SLIB Clearing Risk Management System (CRMS) by connecting to the Hong-Kong CCP: HKSCC (Hong-Kong Securities Clearing Company) for the SEHK (Stock Exchange of Hong-Kong) market.

SLIB has said that its CRMS is a risk management solution for securities clearing, and covers the principal European cash trading venues as well as listed derivatives. All the risk/margining algorithms used in CCP clearing, including SPAN, ERA, RBM and TIMS, are natively implemented in SLIB CRMS.
