  • Due to the long-term nature of system migrations, regulatory changes to market risk and trading activities must be monitored, anticipated and accounted for as the project progresses.

  • Various streams and phases are required when consolidating to one system therefore ensure there is a sufficient number of environments to accommodate concurrent testing.

  • Build out comprehensive business requirement documentation with provision for changes in the future. 



A large corporate, institutional and investment bank embarked on the strategic journey to consolidate their trading activity to a single enterprise-wide trade risk management platform to establish realtime risk and PnL calculation. This was a long-term project across all asset classes that was conducted through a phased approach in order to manage the various idiosyncrasies of each asset type on the various existing bank end systems.


Monocle assisted in the fixed income and money market phases with particular focus on digitising and automating all processes involved, as well as establishing straight through processing across the relevant trading venues and their ETL processes.


This entailed understanding the final classification and data requirements of the new system and ensuring alignment of data requirements across front, middle and back office. End-to-end testing took place to ensure a seamless push to production. Monocle was also involved in the automation of required reporting to ensure compliance with Mifid II.
